The LT8705A is a high performance buck-boost switching regulator controller that operates from input voltages above, below or equal to the output voltage. The part has integrated input current, input voltage, output current and output voltage feedback loops. With a wide 2.8V to 80V input and 1.3V to 80V output range, the LT8705A is compatible with most solar, automotive, telecom and battery-powered systems. The LT8705A is an improved pin compatible version of the LT8705 and is recommended for new designs. See LT8705A vs LT8705 in the Applications Information section for more information.
The LT8705A includes a MODE pin to select among Burst Mode® operation, discontinuous or continuous conduction mode at light loads. Additional features include a 3.3V/12mA LDO, a synchronizable fixed operating frequency, and onboard gate drivers.

Evaluation Kits (1)
Demonstration circuit 2285A features two high power high performance buck-boost LT8705A converters operating in master-slave configuration. The circuit can operate with input voltages above, below or equal to the output voltage. The demo board input range is 36V to 75V. The output is optimized for 48V at 18A, with the output current limit set at 20A. The circuit will operate with lower input voltage than 36V if load current is reduced.
