Analog Devices LTC Switching Controllers
The Analog Devices LTC7852 switching controllers are dual output, 6-phase current mode regulator controllers optimized for use with very low DCR inductors or DrMOS devices in point-of-load converter applications.
The LTC7852 uses a proprietary architecture to enhance the signal-to-noise ratio of the current sense signal, enabling the use of inductors with submilliohm DCR for improved conversion efficiency. The controllers have a 40ns minimum on time allowing for very high switching frequencies at high step-down ratios, and they provide ±0.5% total output voltage accuracy.
The LT7852 operates with power blocks, DrMos, or external gate drivers and MOSFETs, and can be used in 1-phase to 6-phase configurations or two ICs can be used in parallel for 8-, 10-, or 12-phases and loads up to 400A.
