The LT8609AEMSE is a compact, high efficiency, high speed synchronous monolithic step-down switching regulator that consumes only 1.7µA of nonswitching quiescent current.
The LT8609AEMSE can deliver 3A of continuous current. Burst Mode operation enables high efficiency down to very low output currents while keeping the output ripple below 10mVP-P. A SYNC pin allows synchronization to an external clock, or spread spectrum modulation for low EMI operation. Internal compensation with peak current mode topology allows the use of small inductors and results in fast transient response and good loop stability. The EN/UV pin has an accurate 1V threshold and can be used to program VIN UVLO or to shut down the part. A capacitor on the TR/SS pin programs the output voltage ramp rate during start-up while the PG flag signals when VOUT is within ±8.5% on the adjustable output parts or ±7.5% on the fixed output parts of the programmed output voltage as well as fault conditions.
The LT8609AEMSE has slower switch edges for lower EMI emissions. The LT8609B operates in pulse-skipping mode only.
