65Vin, 5Vout / 8A Synchronous Step-Down Regulator with 2.5µA IQ

August 23, 2019 by Paul Shepard

The LT®8645S-2 synchronous step-down regulator from Analog Devices features Silent Switcher architecture designed to minimize EMI emissions while delivering high efficiency at high switching frequencies. This performance makes the LT8645S-2 well-suited for noise sensitive applications and environments.

Anticipated applications include automotive and industrial power supplies, general-purpose step-down regulation and GSM power supplies.

The fast, clean, low-overshoot switching edges enable high efficiency operation even at high switching frequencies, leading to a small overall solution size. Peak current mode control with a 40ns minimum on-time allows high step-down ratios even at high switching frequencies.

Burst Mode® operation enables ultralow standby current consumption (2.5μA quiescent current), pulse-skipping mode allows full switching frequency at lower output loads, or spread spectrum operation can further reduce EMI emissions.
