36 to 72VIN Single-Inductor Buck-Boost Supply provides 48V/200W Output at 97% Efficiency without Heat Sinks
Design How-To  
7/1/2008   Post a comment
A common problem faced by a power supply is how to generate an output that at any time can be above or below the input, particularly in battery-powered systems. Many conventional solutions - such as two-stage power converters, SEPIC converters or Flyback converters - suffer from bulky component requirements and low efficiency. The LTC3780 synchronous 4-switch buck/boost controller avoids these pitfalls by using a revolutionary high efficiency, single inductor topology.
