2A/70V DC/DC Converter Boasts 7µA Quiescent Current
Linear Technology Corp.

The LT8494 current mode, fixed frequency SEPIC/boost dc/dc converter features an internal 2A, 70V switch and specifies a quiescent current of 7µA, making it viable for always-on automotive or other industrial battery powered systems. The device starts up from an input voltage range of 2.5V to 32V and operates from 1V to 60V inputs. It is configurable as a boost, SEPIC, or flyback converter. Switching frequency is programmable via a single resistor between 250 kHz and 1.5 MHz. Other features include efficiencies up to 83% while operating in a SEPIC configuration. The LT8494 is available in a thermally enhanced TSSOP-20 package. Pricing starts at $2.85 each/1,000. For more information and a datasheet, visit http://www.linear.com/product/LT8494
