The LTC3456 is a complete power management system IC optimized for a variety of portable applications. The device generates two separate power rails: a 3.3V (fixed) Main supply and a 1.8V (adjustable) Core supply. In addition, the LTC3456 contains a USB power manager, a Hot Swap output, a low-battery indicator and an alwaysalive VMAX output. The LTC3456 takes power from one of three sources: a Wall adapter, a USB port or a 2-cell Alkaline/NiCd/NiMH battery, in that order of priority. Current drawn from the USB port is accurately limited to 100mA or 500mA based on the state of the USBHP pin.
The Main and Core switchers are all high efficiency, 1MHz fixed frequency PWM converters. Availability in a small (4mm × 4mm × 0.75mm) 24-pin QFN package makes the LTC3456 ideal for space-sensitive portable devices.

Demonstration Circuit 658 is a complete power management system using the LTC3456 for portable applications powered by a wall adapter, a USB port or a 2-cell alkaline battery, in that order of priority. DC658 provides three outputs: a 1.8V, 200mA core supply, a 3.3V, 150mA main supply, and a 3.3V, 50mA Hot Swap supply. All outputs are discharged to ground during shutdown. The synchronous buck (1.8V output) and the second converter (which operates as a buck or a boost depending on the power source, and provides 3.3V @ 150mA and 3.3V @ 50mA outputs) accept a 2V to 3.2V battery input or USB/Wall adapter input.
