The LTC3406-1.2 is a high efficiency monolithic synchronous buck regulator using a constant frequency, current mode architecture. Supply current during operation with only 20µA drops <1µA in shutdown. The 2.5V to 5.5V input voltage range makes the LTC3406-1.2 ideally suited for single Li-Ion battery-powered applications. 100% duty cycle provides low dropout operation, extending battery life in portable systems. Automatic Burst Mode operation further increases efficiency at light loads.
Switching frequency is internally set at 1.5MHz, allowing the use of small surface mount inductors and capacitors. The internal synchronous switch increases efficiency and eliminates the need for an external Schottky diode. The LTC3406-1.2 is available in a low profile (1mm) ThinSOT package.
