DC/DC Controller draws 50 µA in battery-powered systems.

Featuring input range of 4-60 V, Model LTC3890/-1 draws 50 -µA quiescent current when one output is active and 60 -µA when both outputs are enabled. With both outputs shutdown, device draws only 14 -µA. Each output can be set from 0.8-24 V at output currents up to 20 A with efficiencies as high as 95%. Operating with selectable fixed frequency of 50-900 kHz, step-down DC/DC controller can be...
