65V, 2.2MHz Synchronous Step-Down Switcher Delivers 2A & Needs Only 2.5µA of IQ
The device's fast minimum on-time of only 30ns enables 2MHz constant frequency switching from a 16V input to a 1.5V output, enabling designers to optimize efficiency while avoiding critical noise-sensitive frequency bands. The LT8620's 24-lead 3mm x 5mm QFN or thermally enhanced MSOP-16E package and a high switching frequency keeps external inductors and capacitors small, providing a compact, thermally efficient footprint.
The LT8620 integrates internal top and bottom high efficiency power switches with the necessary boost diode, oscillator, control and logic circuitry integrated into a single die. Low ripple Burst Mode operation maintains high efficiency at low output currents while keeping output ripple below 10mVPK-PK. Special design techniques and a new high speed process enable high efficiency over a wide input voltage range, and the LT8620's current-mode topology enables fast transient response and excellent loop stability. Other features include internal compensation, a power good flag, output soft-start/tracking and thermal protection.
The LT8620EUDD is packaged in a 24-lead, 3mm x 5mm QFN package and the LT8620EMSE is packaged in a thermally enhanced MSOP-16E package. Pricing starts at $3.75 each. Industrial temperature versions are tested and guaranteed to operate from a -40°C to 125°C operating junction temperature. All versions are available from stock.
