The LTM4643 is a quad DC/DC step-down µModule (power module) regulator with 3A per output. Outputs can be paralleled in an array for up to 12A capability. Included in the package are the switching controllers, power FETs, inductors and support components. Operating over an input voltage range of 4V to 20V or 2.375V to 20V with an external bias supply, the LTM4643 supports an output voltage range of 0.6V to 3.3V each set by a single external resistor. Its high efficiency design delivers 3A continuous output current per channel. Only bulk input and output capacitors are needed.
Fault protection features include overvoltage, overcurrent and overtemperature protection. The LTM4643 is offered in a 9mm ×15mm × 1.82mm LGA and 9mm × 15mm × 2.42mm BGA packages with SnPb (BGA) or RoHS compliant terminal finish.
- FPGAs, GPUs and ASICs Applications
- PCIe and Backside PCB Mounting

Evaluation Kits (1)
Demonstration circuit 2453A features the LTM4643 μModule® regulator, a high performance high efficiency 4 output step-down regulator. The LTM4643EV has an operating input voltage range of 4V to 14V and is able to provide up to 3A out output current from each of its phases. Each output’s voltage is programmable from 0.6V to 5.5V but the demo board is configured to provide outputs of 3.3V, 2.5V, 1.5V and 1.2V. The LTM4643EV is a complete DC/DC point of load regulator in a thermally enhanced 15mm × 9mm × 5.01mm BGA package requiring only a few input and output capacitors.
