The LTC3446 combines a synchronous buck DC/DC converter with two very low dropout (VLDO) linear regulators to provide up to three stepped-down output voltages from a single input voltage. The input voltage range is ideally suited for Li-Ion battery-powered applications, as well as powering low voltage logic from 5V or 3.3V rails. The output voltage range extends down to 0.4V for the VLDO regulators and 0.8V for the buck.

The 1A synchronous buck converter provides the main output with high efficiency, typically 85%. The two 300mA VLDO regulators can run off the main output to provide two additional lower voltage outputs. A built-in supply monitor provides a power good indication.

The buck converter switches at 2.25MHz, allowing the use of small surface mount inductors and capacitors. Constant frequency current mode operation produces controlled output spectrum and fast transient response. A mode-select pin allows automatic Burst Mode operation to be enabled for higher efficiency at light load, or disabled for lower noise operation down to very light loads. The two VLDO regulators are stable with ceramic output capacitors as small as 1µF.

Product Detail

Demonstration circuit 893A is a triple output converter using the LTC3446 1A monolithic synchronous buck regulator with dual 300mA very low drop-out linear regulators (VLDOs). The DC893A has an input voltage range of 2.9V to 5.5V, and is capable of delivering up to 400mA of load current on the buck output and up to 300mA on each VLDO output. The buck regulator output voltage of the DC893A can be set as low as 0.8V, and the dual VLDOs can be set as low as 0.4V.
