The LTC3619 is a dual monolithic synchronous buck regulator using a constant frequency, current mode architecture.
The input supply voltage range is 2.5V to 5.5V, making it ideal for Li-Ion and USB powered applications. 100% duty cycle capability provides low dropout operation, extending the run time in battery-operated systems. Low output voltages are supported with the 0.6V feedback reference voltage. Channel 1 and channel 2 can supply 400mA and 800mA output current, respectively.
The LTC3619’s programmable average input current limit is ideal for USB applications and for point-of-load power supplies because the LTC3619’s limited input current will still allow its output to deliver high peak load currents without collapsing the input supply. When the sum of both channels’ currents exceeds the input current limit, channel 2 is current limited while channel 1 remains regulated. The operating frequency is internally set at 2.25MHz allowing the use of small surface mount inductors. Internal soft-start reduces in-rush current during start-up. The LTC3619 is available in small MSOP and 3mm × 3mm DFN packages and is also available in a low noise, high efficiency pulse skipping version, LTC3619B.

Evaluation Kits (1)
Demonstration circuit 1489A is a synchronous buck dual regulator with adjustable input current limit featuring the LTC3619EDD(Burst mode operation)/LTC3619BEDD(pulse-skip mode) and is ideally suited for pulsed load applications where the input current needs to be limited. The -A board is for the LTC3619 while the -B board is for the LTC3619B. It is configured for 500mA maximum input current limit. The outputs are configured for a 3.3V/400mA continuous current output and a 3.4V output that can handle pulsed load currents up to 2A, with duty cycles up to 15%. The input voltage range is 5V ±10%. The fixed input current limited can be adjusted by replacing one resistor.
