Analog Devices, Inc., which recently acquired Linear Technology Corporation, announces the LT8362, a current mode, 2MHz step-up DC/DC converter with an internal 2A, 60V switch.
It operates from an input voltage range of 2.8V to 60V, suitable for applications with input sources ranging from a single-cell Li-Ion battery to automotive and industrial inputs. The LT8362 can be configured as either a boost, SEPIC or an inverting converter. Its switching frequency can be programmed between 300kHz and 2MHz, enabling designers to minimize external component sizes and avoid critical frequency bands, such as AM radio. Furthermore, it offers over 90% efficiency while switching at 2MHz. Burst Mode® operation reduces quiescent current to only 9µA while keeping output ripple below 15mVp-p. The combination of a 3mm x 3mm DFN or high voltage MSOP-16E package and tiny externals ensures a highly compact footprint while minimizing solution cost (more info).
