The LT8711 is a multi-topology current mode PWM controller that can easily be configured as a synchronous buck, boost, SEPIC, ZETA or as a nonsynchronous buck-boost converter. Its dual gate drive voltage inputs optimize gate driver efficiency.
The 15µA no-load quiescent current with the output voltage in regulation extends operating run-time in battery powered systems. Low ripple Burst Mode operation enables high efficiency at very light loads while maintaining low output voltage ripple. The LT8711's fixed switching frequency can be set from 100kHz to 750kHz or can be synchronized to an external clock.
The additional features include 100% duty cycle capability when in buck mode, a topology selection pin and adjustable soft-start. LT8711 is available in the 20-lead TSSOP and 20-lead 3mm × 4mm QFN packages.

Evaluation Kits (1)
Demonstration circuit 2234A is a synchronous sepic converter featuring the LT8711 multitopology switching controller. The LT8711 is a current mode PWM DC/DC controller with a dual input LDO to optimize gate driver efficiency. Ultralow 15μA quiescent current in low noise Burst Mode® operation achieves high efficiency at very light loads and helps extend the run-time in battery powered applications when in standby mode. The LT8711 switching frequency can be programmed either via oscillator resistor or external clock over a 100kHz to 750kHz range.
