LTC3809 No RSENSE™, Low EMI, Synchronous DC/DC Controller
No Current Sense Resistor Required
The LTC®3809 is a synchronous step-down switching regu- n
Selectable Spread Spectrum Frequency Modulation
lator controller that drives external complementary power
for Low Noise Operation
MOSFETs using few external components. The constant n
Constant Frequency Current Mode Operation for
frequency current mode architecture with MOSFET VDS
Excellent Line and Load Transient Response
sensing eliminates the need for a current sense resistor n True PLL for Frequency Locking or Adjustment and improves effi ciency. (Frequency Range: 250kHz to 750kHz) For noise sensitive applications, the LTC3809 can be exter- n Wide VIN Range: 2.75V to 9.8V nally synchronized from 250kHz to 750kHz. Burst Mode is n Wide VOUT Range: 0.6V to VIN inhibited during synchronization or when the SYNC/MODE n 0.6V ±1.5% Reference pin is pulled low to reduce noise and RF interference. To n Low Dropout Operation: 100% Duty Cycle further reduce EMI, the LTC3809 incorporates a novel n Selectable Burst Mode®/Pulse-Skipping/Forced spread spectrum frequency modulation technique. Continuous Operation n Auxiliary Winding Regulation Burst Mode operation provides high effi ciency operation n Internal Soft-Start Circuitry at light loads. 100% duty cycle provides low dropout n Output Overvoltage Protection operation, extending operating time in battery-powered n Micropower Shutdown: I systems. Q = 9μA n Tiny Thermally Enhanced Leadless (3mm × 3mm) The switching frequency can be programmed up to 750kHz, DFN and 10-lead MSOP Packages allowing the use of small surface mount inductors and capacitors.
The LTC3809 is available in tiny footprint thermally enhanced DFN and 10-lead MSOP packages. n 1- or 2-Cell Lithium-Ion Powered Devices n Portable Instruments L, LT, LTC, LTM and Burst Mode are registered trademarks of Linear Technology Corporation.
