High efficiency 2-phase boost converter minimizes input and output current ripple

Goran Perica

Abstract

The simple LT3782 dual phase switching boost converter, which improves on single phase alternatives by allowing high power output with lower ripple currents, reduced heat dissipation and a more compact design, is described.

Introduction

Many automotive and industrial applications require higher voltages than is available on the input power supply rail. A simple DC/DC boost converter suffices when the power levels are in the 10W to 50W range, but if higher power levels are required, the limitations of a straightforward boost converter become quickly apparent. Boost ...
