A wide input voltage range buck-boost converter that simplifies design of variable input supplies is described.
Many of today’s portable electronic devices require the ability to operate from a variety of power sources including USB, wall adapters, and alkaline and lithium batteries. Designing a power conversion solution that is compatible with this wide array of power sources can be daunting. The LTC3530 monolithic synchronous converter simplifies the task by operating in both buck and boost modes over an extended input voltage range of 1.8V to 5.5V. No complicated ...
