Micropower Low Noise Boost Converters with Output Disconnect

Posted on Feb 4, 2014

The LT3494/LT3494A are low noise boost converters with integrated power switch, Schottky diode and output disconnect circuitry. The parts use a novel* control technique resulting in low output voltage ripple as well as high ef ¬ciency over a wide load current range. This technique guarantees that the switching frequency stays above the audio band

for the entire load range. The parts feature a high performance NPN power switch with a 350mA and 180mA current limit for the LT3494A and LT3494 respectively. The quiescent current is a low 65 µA, which is further reduced to less than 1 µA in shutdown. The internal disconnect circuitry allows the output voltage to be isolated from the input during shutdown. An auxiliary reference input (CTRL pin) overrides the internal 1. 225V feedback reference with any lower value allowing full control of the output voltage during operation. The LT3494/LT3494A are available in a tiny 8-lead 3mm x 2mm DFN package. * The USA list pricing shown is for BUDGETARY USE ONLY, shown in United States dollars (FOB USA per unit for the stated volume), and is subject to change.
