LTC3103EDD
1.8µA Quiescent Current, 15V,
300mA Synchronous Step-Down
DC/DC Converter
Description
Demonstration Circuit 1883A features the LTC®3103, a high
efficiency, monolithic synchronous step-down converter
using a current mode architecture capable of supplying
300mA of output current. The IC operates with a fixed
frequency oscillator at 1.2MHz.
The LTC3103 has two user selectable (JP2) operating
modes: Burst Mode® operation and forced continuous
operation (fixed frequency PWM). The IC has internal
compensation and an accurate programmable RUN pin.
The LTC3103 operates with a 2.5V to 15V input voltage
range. The demo board has been designed with a main
output set to 1.8V. Since the LTC3103 is a buck converter,
as VIN approaches VOUT, the output will start dropping out

of regulation. Consult the data sheet for information on
the minimum VIN to VOUT differential for regulation. The
regulation range is also a function of the load current.
Typical demo board efficiency is shown in Figures 1 and 2.
The LTC3103 data sheet has detailed information about
the operation, specification and applications of the part.
The data sheet should be read in conjunction with this
Quick Start Guide.

Quick Start Procedure
Using short twisted-pair leads for any power connections
and with all loads and power supplies off, refer to Figure 3
for the proper measurement and equipment setup. The
battery/power supply (PS1) should not be connected to
the circuit until it is stated in the following procedure.
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 4), or by using an oscilloscope probe tip jack.
1.Jumper, PS1 and LOAD settings to start:
PS1 = OFF
3.Connect a load to VOUT, as shown in Figure 3. The load
can be up to 300mA or 6Ω for VOUT = 1.8V. Connect an
ammeter if accurate current measurement or monitoring
is desired.
4.Turn on PS1 and slowly increase voltage until the voltage at VIN is 5V. Move Jumper JP1 to ON.
5.Verify VOUT is ~1.8V.
6.VIN can now be varied between 3V and 15V. VOUT should
remain in regulation.
7.VIN can also be varied down to 2.5V. For VIN ≤ 3V,
VOUT may drop out of regulation, as previously described.
8.IOUT can also be varied from 0mA to 300mA.
JP1 (RUN) = OFF
JP2 (MODE) = FIXED FREQUENCY
2.With power off, connect the power supply (PS1) as
shown in Figure 3. If accurate current measurements
are desired (for efficiency calculation for example),
then connect an ammeter in series with the supply as
shown. The ammeter is not required, however.
9. For Burst Mode operation, move jumper JP2 to BURST.
See the data sheet for more information.
NOTES:
(1) If VOUT drops out of regulation, check to be sure
the maximum load has not been exceeded, or that VIN is
not below the minimum value for regulation (see
the data sheet).
(2) To measure no-load input current, remove R4.
