The LTC3115-1 is a high voltage monolithic synchronous buck-boost DC/DC converter. Its wide 2.7V to 40V input and output voltage ranges make it well suited to a wide variety of automotive and industrial applications. A proprietary low noise switching algorithm optimizes efficiency with input voltages that are above, below or even equal to the output voltage and ensures seamless transitions between operational modes.
Programmable frequency PWM mode operation provides low noise, high efficiency operation and the ability to synchronize switching to an external clock. Switching frequencies up to 2MHz are supported to allow use of small value inductors for miniaturization of the application circuit. Pin selectable Burst Mode operation reduces standby current and improves light load efficiency which, combined with a 3µA shutdown current, make the LTC3115-1 ideally suited for battery-powered applications. Additional features include output disconnect in shutdown, short-circuit protection and internal soft-start. The LTC3115-1 is available in thermally enhanced 16-lead 4mm × 5mm × 0.75mm DFN and 20-lead TSSOP packages.

Evaluation Kits (1)
Demonstration circuit 1687B features the LTC3115-1, a high voltage monolithic synchronous buck-boost converter.
The DC1687B demo board has two user-selectable operating modes: Burst Mode® operation and forced continuous operation (fixed frequency PWM) (JP1). There is also an accurate programmable RUN pin which is used to enable the converter (JP2).
The DC1687B operates with a 2.7V to 40V input voltage range. The demo board has been designed with the output voltage set to 5V. The LTC3115-1 incorporates a proprietary low noise switching algorithm which optimizes efficiency with input voltages above, below or equal to the output voltage and ensures seamless transitions between operating modes.
The demo board has been programmed to operate at 1MHz in PWM mode to optimize small size with high efficiency operation.
The demo board also has optional provisions to back feed VCC in order to increase efficiency in some 5V output applications. There is also a provision for an optional Schottky diode from SW2 to VOUT for applications where VOUT is greater than 20V and short circuit protection is desired. Consult the data sheet for more information on these options.
The LTC3115-1 data sheet has detailed information about the operation, specifications, and applications of the part. The data sheet should be read in conjunction with this quick start guide.
