The LTM8051 is quad 40VIN, 1.2A step-down Silent Switcher μModule® regulator. The Silent Switcher architecture minimizes EMI while delivering high efficiency at frequencies up to 3MHz. Included in the package are the controllers, power switches, inductors, and support components. Operating over a wide input voltage range, the LTM8051 supports output voltages from 0.8V to 8V, and a switching frequency range of 300kHz to 3MHz, each set by a single resistor. Only the bulk input and output filter capacitors are needed to finish the design. The LTM8051 product video is available on website.
The LTM8051 is packaged in a compact (6.25mm × 11.25mm × 2.22mm) over-molded Ball Grid Array (BGA) package suitable for automated assembly by standard surface mount equipment. The LTM8051 is available with SnPb (BGA) or RoHS compliant.

Evaluation Kits (1)
Demonstration circuit 2860A is a quad step-down DC/DC switching converter featuring the LTM8051 silent switcher μModule® regulator. The demo board is designed to deliver quad 5V/1.2A, 3.3V/1.2A, 2.5V/1.2A and 1.8V/1.2A outputs from a 7V to 40V input. The Silent Switcher® architecture minimizes EMI while achieving high efficiency at frequencies up to 3MHz. The modes of operation (Burst Mode® operation or discontinuous mode/SYNC) are jumper selectable. Burst Mode operation improves efficiency at light loads.
The LTM8051 is a fixed frequency PWM regulator with current mode control scheme. The switching frequency of channel 1 and channel 4 is set by an appropriate resistor (R11) from the RT14 pin to ground. The switching frequency of channel 2 and channel 3 is set by another appropriate resistor (R23) from the RT23 pin to ground. The RUN14 pin (RUN14 terminal) can be used to set the LTM8051 channel 1 and channel 4 in micro power shut-down mode, while the RUN23 pin (RUN23 terminal) can be used to set the channel 2 and channel 3 in shutdown mode. Output tracking and soft start pins (TRSS1/TRSS2/TRSS3/TRSS4) allow user control of output voltage ramp rate during startup. The power good output of each channel (PG1/PG2/PG3/PG4) will be low when that channel’s output voltage is outside of the ±7.5% regulation window.
The LTM8051 data sheet gives a complete description of the operation and application information. The data sheet must be read in conjunction with the demo manual.
