May 11, 2020 Perry Cohen

Analog Devices released the LT8650S, LT8652S and LT8653S dual-channel 4A/8.5A/2A synchronous step-down Silent Switcher® converters. The silent switcher series is based on the Silent Switcher 2 architecture, coupled with spread spectrum frequency modulation. Per the company, this ensure PCB layout robustness to achieve ultra-low EMI performance that meets CISPR25 emissions.

The outputs are able to be paralleled to scale up or down the current based on the system. This can be performed while optimizing thermal performance.  

LT8650S/LT8652S/LT8653S Key Features as Provided by the Company

  • Silent Switcher 2 Technology with Integrated Bypass Capacitors meets CISPR25 Emissions
  • Ultralow Quiescent Current Burst Mode® for Light Load operation
  • Up to 12A (LT8652S) on one channel
  • Adjustable and Synchronizable Frequency (300kHz to 3MHz)
