DC1731A-A/DC1731A-B
LTC3646/LTC3646-1
High Efficiency Low Quiescent Current
Step-Down Converter
DESCRIPTION
Demonstration circuit 1731A-A/1731A-B is a step-down
DC/DC converter using LTC3646/LTC3646-1 monolithic
synchronous buck regulator. The input voltage range is
from 4V to 40V. The output voltage range of LTC3646 is
2V to 30V, for LTC3646-1 is 0.6V to 15V. It can deliver up
to 1A of output current. At light load conditions, DC1731A
can operate in Burst Mode® operation to improve the efficiency. The user can choose to use internal or external
compensation. The switching frequency of LTC3646/
LTC3646-1 is programmable from 200kHz to 3MHz. It can

be synchronized to an external clock through the MODE/
SYNC pin. The LTC3646/LTC3646-1 data sheet must be
read in conjunction with this demo manual prior to working
on or modifying demonstration circuit 1731A.

QUICK START PROCEDURE
Demonstration circuit 1731A is an easy way to evaluate
the performance of the LTC3646/LTC3646-1. Please refer
to Figure 1 for proper measurement equipment setup and
follow the procedure below:
3. Turn on the power at the input. Increase VIN to 12V (Do
not hot-plug the input supply or apply more than the
rated maximum voltage of 40V to the board or the
part may be damaged). The output voltage should be
regulated and deliver the selected output voltage ±2%.
1. Place jumpers in the following positions for a typical
application:

4. Vary the input voltage from 4V to 40V and adjust the
load current from 0A to 1A. Observe the output voltage
regulation, ripple voltage, efficiency, and other parameters.
2. With power off, connect the input power supply, load
and meters as shown in Figure 1. Preset the load to 0A
and VIN supply to be 0V.
5. To measure input or output ripple, please refer to Figure 2
for proper measurement setup.
