42V, 2.5A, 2.7µA Micropower
Buck Regulator
DESCRIPTION
Demonstration circuit 1736A is a monolithic step-down
DC/DC switching regulator featuring the LT®3975. The
demo circuit is designed for 3.3V, 2.5A output from a 4.3V
to 42V input. The wide input range of the LT3975 allows
a variety of input sources, such as automotive batteries
and industrial supplies. The switching frequency can be
programmed either via oscillator resistor or external clock
up to 2MHz. When the circuit is synchronized to an external
clock connected to the SYNC terminal, the RT resistor (R5)
should be chosen to set the LT3975 internal switching
frequency at least 20% below the lowest synchronization input frequency. Low ripple Burst Mode® operation
increases the efficiency at the light load while keeping the
output ripple below 15mV.
The circuit consumes only 2.7μA of quiescent current.
The LT3975 internal boost diode and loop compensation
reduce the components count and solution size. The current mode control scheme creates fast transient response
and good loop stability. The LT3975 is in shutdown when
PERFORMANCE SUMMARY
PARAMETER
the EN pin is low and active when the pin is high. The
threshold of the EN pin is accurate at 1.02V with 60mV
of hysteresis. Users can populate R7 and R8 to provide a
programmable undervoltage lockout. During a short-circuit
fault, the LT3975 has current limit foldback to limit the
power dissipation.
The LT3975 data sheet gives a complete description of
the part, operation and application information. The data
sheet must be read in conjunction with this demo manual
for demo circuit 1736A. The LT3975 is assembled in a
16-lead plastic MSOP package with an exposed pad for
low thermal resistance. Proper board layout is essential
for both proper operation and maximum thermal performance. See the data sheet section PCB Layout and High
Temperature Considerations.

QUICK START PROCEDURE
Demonstration circuit 1736A is easy to set up to evaluate the performance of the LT3975. Refer to Figure 2 for
proper measurement equipment setup and follow the
procedure below:
5. Turn on the power at the input.
NOTE. When measuring the input or output voltage ripple,
care must be taken to avoid a long ground lead on the
oscilloscope probe. Measure the input or output voltage
ripple by touching the probe tip directly across the VIN
or VOUT and GND terminals. See Figure 3 for the proper
scope technique.
NOTE. If there is no output, temporarily disconnect the load
to make sure that the load is not set too high or is shorted.
1. Place JP1 on the ON position.
8. An external clock can be added to the SYNC terminal
when SYNC function is used (JP2 on the SYNC position). Please make sure that the SYNC frequency is at
least 20% higher than the set switching frequency. See
the data sheet section Synchronization.
2. Place JP2 on the RT FREQ position.
3. With power off, connect the input power supply to VIN
and GND.
NOTE. Make sure that the input voltages do not exceed 42V.
6. Check for the proper output voltage (3.3V).
7. Once the proper output voltages are established, adjust
the load within the operating ranges and observe the
output voltage regulation, ripple voltage, efficiency and
other parameters.
4. With power off, connect load from VOUT to GND.
