- Low Ripple Buck-Boost Architecture
- Programmable Soft-Start and VIN UVLO
- Burst Mode IQ 15μA for High Efficiency at Light Loads
- Ultrathin, Small Surface Mount Footprint
- 3.5mm × 4mm × 1.25mm LGA Package
The LTM4693 is an ultrathin, highly efficient, 2A buck-boost μModule® DC/DC converter that operates from input voltages above, below or equal to the output voltage. Included in the package are the switching controller, power MOSFETs, inductor and support components. The LTM4693’s advanced topology provides a continuous transfer through all operating modes. VIN operation from 2.6V to 5.5V covers a wide variety of power sources including typical 3.3V and 5V. Output voltage ranging from 1.8V to 5.5V is set by an external resistor. Only a few external components are needed for a typical application.
Selectable Burst Mode® operation reduces quiescent current to 15μA, ensuring high efficiency across the entire load range. To optimize applications for highest efficiency, the switching frequency can be programmed between 1MHz to 4MHz or synchronized to an external clock for noise sensitive circuits.
LTM4693 is available in ultrathin, 3.5mm × 4mm ×1.25mm LGA Package. The LTM4693 is Pb-free and RoHS compliant.

Evaluation Kits (1)
Demonstration circuit DC3016A is a buck-boost power supply featuring the LTM4693, ultrathin, highly efficient, 2A buck-boost μModule® regulator. The LTM4693 regulates an output voltage above, below, or equal to the input voltage. This demonstration circuit is designed to have an input voltage from 2.6V to 5.5V with selectable 1.8V, 2.5V, 3.3V, and 5V output voltage up to 2A load. Derating may be necessary for specific VIN, VOUT, and thermal conditions.
This demo board includes a mode selector that allows the converter to run in CCM or Burst Mode® operation. Synchronization to an external clock is also possible. The switching frequency can be adjusted from 1MHz to 4MHz by a resistor. And the soft-start period is programmable by an external capacitor. The LTM4693 data sheet gives a complete description of these functions, operation, and application information. The data sheet must be read in conjunction with this quick start guide for demo circuit 3016A.
