The LTC7818 is a high performance triple output (buck/buck/boost) synchronous DC/DC switching regulator controller that drives all N-channel power MOSFET stages. Its constant frequency current mode architecture allows a phase-lockable switching frequency of up to 3MHz. The LTC7818 operates from a wide 4.5V to 40V input supply range. When biased from the output of the boost converter or another auxiliary supply, the LTC7818 can operate from an input supply as low as 1V after start-up.
The very low no-load quiescent current extends operating run time 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 LTC7818 features a precision 0.8V reference for the bucks, 1.2V reference for the boost and a power good output indicator.
The LTC7818 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.

Demonstration circuit DC2855A is a triple output synchronous step-up/dual step-down supply featuring the LTC 7818. The demonstration circuit is designed for two buck outputs 5V/10A, 3.3V/10A supplied by a boosted 10V output. Benefiting from this feature, the buck outputs are able to maintain regulation over a wide input voltage range of 4.5V to 36V which is suitable for automotive or other battery fed applications. Also, the demonstration circuit uses a drop-in layout whereas the main buck circuit components fit in an area of ¾” by 1½”, while the main boost circuit area is ¾” by 1¾”. The package style for the LTC7818 is a 40-pin exposed pad QFN.
The main features of the board include rail tracking (Buck channels only), an internal 5V linear regulator for bias, separated RUN pins for each output, a PGOOD signal (CH1 only), an overvoltage indicator for CH3 and a Mode selector that allow the converter to run in CCM, Pulseskipping or Burst Mode operation. Spread Spectrum Mode is availiable for EMI improvement. Synchronization to an external clock is also possible. The LTC7818 datasheet gives a complete description of these parts, operation and application information. The datasheet must be read in conjunction with this quick start guide for demo circuit 2855A.
