The LT®8650S-1 is a dual step-down regulator that delivers up to 4A of continuous current from both channels and supports loads up to 6A from each channel. The LT8650S-1 features the second generation Silent Switcher architecture to minimize EMI emissions while delivering high efficiency at high switching frequencies. This includes integration of bypass capacitors to optimize high frequency current loops and make it easy to achieve advertised EMI performance by eliminating layout sensitivity.
The LT8650S-1 is the H-grade version of the LT8650S. The internal capacitors are X8R type to achieve the 150°C rating. This requires the use of an external boost capacitor between the BST and SW nodes.
Burst Mode operation features a 6.2μA quiescent current resulting in high efficiency at low output currents, forced continuous mode allows fixed switching frequency operation over the entire output load range, and spread spectrum operation can further reduce EMI emissions. External VC pins allow optimal loop compensation for fast transient response. The VC pins can also be used for current sharing and the CLKOUT pin enables synchronizing two LT8650S-1 chips to generate a 4-phase, 16A supply.
