The LTC3897 is a synchronous boost DC/DC controller with surge stopper and ideal diode controller.
The boost controller drives two N-channel power MOSFET stages out-of-phase to reduce input and output capacitor requirements, allowing the use of smaller inductors than the single-phase equivalent. Synchronous rectification reduces power loss and eases thermal requirements.
The surge stopper controls the gate of an external N-channel MOSFET to protect against high voltage input transients and provides in-rush current control, overcurrent protection and output disconnect for the boost converter. The integrated ideal diode controller drives another N-channel MOSFET to replace a Schottky diode for reverse input protection and voltage holdup or peak detection. It controls the forward voltage drop across the MOSFET and minimizes reverse current flow.
The LTC3897 is available in thermally-enhanced 38-pin leadless QFN or 38-lead TSSOP packages.

Evaluation Kits (1)
Demonstration circuit DC2108 is DC/DC boost converter featuring the LTC3897 constant frequency current mode boost controller. The DC2108A operates over a 16V to 55V input and provides 4A to 12A of output current as shown in Figure 3. The 160kHz (2 •160kHz at the output) constant frequency operation results in a small and efficient circuit. The converter provides high output voltage accuracy (typically ±3%) over a wide load range with no minimum load requirement. The demonstration circuit can be easily modified to generate different output voltages.
