7V, 500mA Synchronous Buck-Boost DC/DC Converter Provides Extended Battery Run Time in Handheld Applications
The LTC3534 includes two N-Channel MOSFETs and two P-Channel MOSFETs (215mOhm/275mOhm and 260mOhm, respectively) to deliver efficiencies of up to 94%. Burst Mode® operation requires only 25uA of quiescent current while shutdown current is less than 1uA, further extending battery run-time. If the application is noise sensitive, the PWM pin can also be configured to provide forced continuous operation to reduce noise and RF interference. Other features include soft-start, current limiting, thermal shutdown and output disconnect.
LTC3534EDD is available from stock in a 16-lead 3mm x 5mm DFN package, and the LTC3534EGN is available in a 16-lead SSOP package. Pricing for both versions is $3.15 each in 1,000 piece quantities. For more information, visit www.linear.com.
