Product Details

The LTC1430 is a high power, high efficiency switching regulator controller optimized for 5V to 3.xV applications. It includes a precision internal reference and an internal feedback system that can provide output regulation of ±1% over temperature, load current and line voltage shifts. The LTC1430 uses a synchronous switching architecture with two N-channel output devices, eliminating the need for a high power, high cost P-channel device. Additionally, it senses output current across the drain-source resistance of the upper N-channel FET, providing an adjustable current limit without an external low value sense resistor.

The LTC1430 includes a fixed frequency PWM oscillator for low output ripple under virtually all operating conditions. The 200kHz free-running clock frequency can be externally adjusted from 100kHz to above 500kHz. The LTC1430 features low 350µA quiescent current, allowing greater than 90% efficiency operation in converter designs from 1A to greater than 50A output current. Shutdown mode drops the LTC1430 supply current to 1µA.

For new designs, refer to the LTC3830.
