The LTC7805 is a high performance dual step-down synchronous DC/DC switching regulator controller that drives all N-channel power MOSFET stages. Constant frequency current mode architecture allows a phase-lockable switching frequency of up to 3MHz. The LTC7805 operates from a wide 4.5V to 40V input supply range. Power loss and supply noise are minimized by operating the two controller output stages out-of-phase.
The very low no-load quiescent current extends operating runtime in battery powered systems. OPTI-LOOP compensation allows the transient response to be optimized over a wide range of output capacitance and ESR values. The LTC7805 features a precision 0.8V reference and power good output indicators. The MODE pin selects among Burst Mode operation, pulse-skipping mode, or continuous inductor current mode at light loads.
The LTC7805 additionally features spread spectrum operation which significantly reduces the peak radiated and conducted noise on both the input and output supplies, making it easier to comply with electromagnetic interference (EMI) standards.

Evaluation Kits (1)
Demonstration circuit 3138A is a dual output step-down DC/DC converter that operates over a 12V to 36V input voltage range. It provides two outputs of 5V at 15A and 12V at 10A, and features the LTC7805 dual output synchronous step-down controller.
Key features of this board include:
- FREQUENCY jumper for spread spectrum or external clock
- EXTVCC jumper to use VOUT2, EXTVCC, or other derived VCC
- MODE jumper that allows the converter to run in FCM, pulse-skipping, or Burst Mode® operation
- PGOOD signals for each output
The two channels can be paralleled for higher output current. See the data sheet for more information on setting up the board for paralleling the two outputs.
The LTC7805 data sheet gives a complete description of the device, its operation and application information. The data sheet must be read in conjunction with the demo manual prior to working on or modifying demo circuit 3138A.
