The LTC3375 is a digitally programmable high efficiency multioutput power supply IC. The DC/DCs consist of eight synchronous buck converters (IOUT up to 1A each) all powered from independent 2.25V to 5.5V input supplies.
DC/DC enables, output voltages, operating modes, and phasing may all be independently programmed over I2C or used in standalone mode via simple I/O with power-up defaults. The DC/DCs may be used independently or in parallel to achieve higher output currents of up to 4A per output with a shared inductor. Alarm levels for high die temperature may also be programmed via I2C with a maskable IRQ output for monitoring DC/DC and system faults.
Pushbutton ON/OFF/RESET control, power-on reset, and a watchdog timer provide flexible and reliable power-up sequencing and system monitoring. The LTC3375 is available in a low profile 48-lead 7mm × 7mm QFN package.

Evaluation Kits (1)
Demonstration circuit 1921A is a digitally programmable 8-output power supply with a pushbutton controller and watchdog timer, featuring the LTC3375. The LTC3375 has eight synchronous buck regulators, each with an independent VIN supply. The buck regulators may be paralleled together to create a higher power buck regulator with a single inductor. The input range of the LTC3375 is ideal for single cell Li-Ion/Polymer battery applications. The switching regulator settings, such as enables, feedback voltages, operating modes, phasing and other functions, can be controlled via I2C. The buck regulators can also be enabled via external precision threshold enable pins to allow hardwired power-up sequences.
