The LT8638S offers fast, clean, low overshoot switching edges, enabling high-efficiency operation even at high switching frequencies. Peak current-mode control with a 25ns minimum on-time allows high step-down ratios even at high switching frequencies. External compensation via the VC pin allows for a fast transient response. PolyPhase® operation allows multiple LT8638S regulators to run with an interleaving phase shift to provide more output current.
Burst Mode operation of the LT8638S enables low standby current consumption. Forced Continuous Mode can control frequency harmonics across the entire output load range, or Spread Spectrum operation can further reduce EMI emissions. Soft-start and tracking functionality is accessed via the SS pin. An accurate input voltage UVLO threshold can be set using the EN/UV pin.
The LT8638S is specifically designed to minimize EMI emissions and also to maximize efficiency when switching at high frequencies. For optimal performance, the LT8638S should use multiple VIN bypass capacitors.
The Analog Devices Inc. LT8638S Silent Switcher 2 is offered in a 5mm x 4mm LQFN28 package and is RoHS compliant.
