Product Details

The LTC3100 combines a high efficiency 700mA synchronous step-up converter, a 250mA synchronous stepdown converter and a 100mA LDO regulator. The LTC3100 features a wide input voltage range of 0.65V to 5V. The step-down converter can be powered by the output of the step-up converter or from a separate power source between 1.8V and 5.5V. The LDO can also be used as a sequencing switch on the output of the boost.

A switching frequency of 1.5MHz minimizes solution footprint by allowing the use of tiny, low profile inductors and ceramic capacitors. The switching regulators use current mode control and are internally compensated, reducing external parts count. Each converter automatically transitions to Burst Mode operation to maintain high efficiency over the full load range. Burst Mode operation can be disabled for low noise applications. The integrated LDO provides a third low noise, low dropout supply.

Anti-ringing circuitry reduces EMI by damping the boost inductor in discontinuous mode. Additional features include shutdown current of under 1μA and overtemperature shutdown. The LTC3100 is housed in a 16-lead 3mm × 3mm 0.75mm QFN package.
