The LTC3252 is a switched capacitor step-down DC/DC converter that produces two adjustable regulated outputs from a single 2.7V to 5.5V input. The part uses switched capacitor fractional conversion to achieve a typical efficiency increase of 50% over that of a linear regulator. No inductors are required.

A unique constant frequency, spread spectrum architecture provides a very low noise regulated output as well as low noise at the input. The part also has Burst Mode® operation to provide high efficiency at low output currents, as well as ultralow current shutdown.

Low operating currents (60µA with both outputs enabled, 35µA with one output enabled) and low external parts count make the LTC3252 ideally suited for space-constrained battery-powered applications. The part is shortcircuit and overtemperature protected and is available in a tiny 4mm x 3mm 12-pin DFN package.

Applications

  • Handheld Electronic Devices
  • Cellular Phones
  • Low Voltage Logic Supplies
  • DSP Power Supplies
  • 3.3V to 1.5V Conversion

Product Detail

Demonstration circuit 611 is a dual, spread-spectrum, step-down charge pump DC/DC converter featuring the LTC3252EDE. It produces regulated 1.5V and 1.2V output voltages at up to 250mA of output current each, from a 2.7V to 5.5V input. The unique spread spectrum architecture of the LTC3252 provides highly efficient, low noise operation. The circuit has a low external parts count and requires only five small surface mount capacitors and four tiny surface mount resistors.
