High efficiency, fast transient response and small size are often at odds in power supply designs. Fortunately, the 2-phase LTC3708 PWM controller makes it possible to simultaneously achieve all three. Figure 146.1 show the LTC3708 in a compact, high efficiency dual-output power supply that has excellent transient response.
