LTC3404

Introduction

High switching frequency and low quiescent current are no longer conflicting requirements in the design of battery-powered products. Linear Technology’s LTC3404 is the industry’s first step-down switching regulator that operates at 1.4MHz while drawing only 10μA of supply current (using Burst Mode operation) at no load. This impressive feat allows for better than 90% efficiency over three decades of output load current while allowing the use ...
