The LTC3311 is a very small, low noise, monolithic step-down DC/DC converter capable of providing up to 12.5A of output current from a 2.25V to 5.5V input supply. The device employs Silent Switcher 1 architecture with internal hot loop bypass capacitors to achieve both low EMI and high efficiency at switching frequencies as high as 5MHz. For systems with higher power requirements, multi-phasing parallel converters is readily implemented.
The LTC3311 uses a constant frequency, peak current mode control architecture for fast transient response. A 500mV reference allows for low voltage outputs. 100% duty cycle operation delivers low drop out.
Other features include a power good signal when the output is in regulation, precision enable threshold, output overvoltage protection, thermal shutdown, a temperature monitor, clock synchronization, mode selection and output short circuit protection. The device is available in a compact 18-lead 3mm × 3mm LQFN package.
