The LT8642S synchronous step-down regulator features second generation Silent Switcher architecture designed to minimize EMI emissions while delivering high efficiency at high switching frequencies. This includes the integration of bypass capacitors to optimize all the fast current loops inside and make it easy to achieve advertised EMI performance by eliminating layout sensitivity.

The fast, clean, low-overshoot switching edges enable high efficiency operation even at high switching frequencies, leading to a small overall solution size. Peak current mode control with a 20ns minimum on-time allows high step down ratios even at high switching frequencies. External compensation via the VC pin allows for fast transient response at high switching frequencies. A CLKOUT pin enables synchronizing other regulators to the LT8642S.

Burst Mode operation enables low standby current consumption, forced continuous mode can control frequency harmonics across the entire output load range, or spread spectrum operation can further reduce EMI emissions. Soft-start and tracking functionality is accessed via the SS pin, and an accurate input voltage UVLO threshold can be set using the EN/UV pin.

Product Detail

Demonstration circuit 2560A is a 18V, 10A synchronous step-down Silent Switcher®2 with spread spectrum frequency modulation featuring the LT8642S. The demo board is designed for 1.2V output from a 2.8V to 18V input. The LT8642S is a compact, ultralow emission, high efficiency, and high speed synchronous monolithic step-down switching regulator. The integrated bypass capacitors optimize all the fast current loops and make it easier to minimize EMI/EMC emissions by reducing layout sensitivity. Selectable spread spectrum mode can further improve EMI/EMC performance. Fast minimum on-time of 20ns enables high VIN to low VOUT conversion at high frequency.

The LT8642S switching frequency can be programmed either via a resistor or external clock over a 200kHz to 3MHz range. The default frequency of demo circuit 2560A is 2MHz. The SYNC pin on the demo board is grounded (JP1 at BURST position) by default for low ripple Burst Mode® operation. To synchronize to an external clock, move JP1 to SYNC and apply the external clock to the SYNC terminal. Spread spectrum mode and forced continuous mode can be selected respectively by moving JP1 shunt.

The demo board has an EMI filter installed. This EMI filter can be included by applying the input voltage at the VIN_ EMI terminal.

The LT8642S data sheet gives a complete description of the part, operation and application information. The data sheet must be read in conjunction with this demo manual for demo circuit 2560A. The LT8643S is assembled in a 4mm × 4mm LQFN package with exposed pads for low thermal resistance. The layout recommendations for low EMI operation and maximum thermal performance are available in the data sheet section Low EMI PCB Layout and Thermal Considerations.
