LT3763
High Power Constant Current,
Constant Voltage Synchronous
Buck Controller
DESCRIPTION
Demonstration circuit 1831A is a high power constant
current, constant voltage synchronous buck controller
featuring the LT®3763. The input of the demo board is
up to 60V. The output is optimized for 10V, 10A as a
LED driver. As an LED driver, the output current is being
regulated until the output voltage reaches a programmed
voltage limit. The voltage limit on the demo board is set to
around 15V by R11 and R14. The load to be used with this
demo board is high current LEDs or laser diodes. Smaller
LEDs may not be able to handle the high current, even for
a short period of time. It is necessary to mount the LED
load on a proper heat sink. A fan may become necessary
to avoid exceeding LED’s maximum temperature rating.
The demo circuit 1831A achieves fast current rise time
from 0A to 10A. To see the real rise time, connecting wires
between the LED and the board should be as short as
possible to minimize the wire inductance and resistance.
The cathode of the LED should return to LED– with R17
populated with a resistor in a few mΩ. It is recommended
to measure the voltage on R17 with a short 50Ω coax cable
directly into a BNC connector on the oscilloscope. The
current can be calculated from the measured voltage. A
current probe adds more delays to the rise time so using
a current probe is not recommended. If fast rise time is
not required, the cathode of the LED can be connected to
GND as shown in Figure 2.
The input voltage range of the LT3763 itself is 6V to 60V.
The demo board input range is 12V to 60V, therefore, the
demo board utilizes 80V MOSFETs. If an application has
a maximum input voltage of 48V, 60V MOSFETs such as
BSC100N06LS3, can be used for better efficiency at lower
voltage range. The typical efficiency of the demo board is
95% from a 24V input to a 10V, 10A load. The lower the
input voltage, the higher the efficiency tends to be for a given
load. At an output power level of 100W, even a one percent
efficiency improvement is a big advantage in minimizing
temperature rise. If an efficiency measurement is needed
in an application, the output voltage must be measured
at the output capacitors instead of at the LED load. This
prevents cable loss from being counted as a loss of the
board. The LT3763 turns off unnecessary circuits during
PWM off period to minimize power losses. As a result,
efficiency in many PWM dimming applications is high.
The LT3763 data sheet gives a complete description of
the part, operation and application information. The data
sheet must be read in conjunction with this quick start
guide for demo circuit 1831A.

In most applications, input voltage reaching the maximum
specification is a transient event. However, a fan helps the
circuit to stay cool if running at or near peak input voltage
at full load in steady state. If running in steady state at
or near maximum input voltage and full load is required,
please contact LTC applications engineering.

QUICK START PROCEDURE
Demonstration circuit 1831A is easy to set up to evaluate the performance of the LT3763. Refer to Figure 2 for
proper measurement equipment setup and follow the
procedure below:
1. With power off, connect the input power supply to VIN
and GND. Note: make sure VIN is below 60V.
3. When measuring input and output voltage, measure at
test points TP1 to TP4.
4. Turn on the power at the input.
5. Carefully evaluate other design parameters as needed.
2. With power off, connect the LED load to VOUT and
GND (without PWM dimming) or VOUT and LED– (with
PWM dimming).
