The LTM8056 from Linear Technology is a 58 VIN, buck-boost μModule® (micromodule) regulator which requires just a few external passive components to complete the regulator design. Included in the package are the switching controller, power switches, inductor and support components. The basic external components needed are a single resistor to set the switching frequency, a resistor divider network to set the output voltage together with input and output capacitors. Other features such as input and output average current regulation may be implemented with just a few additional components. The LTM8056 operates with an input voltage ranging from 5 V to 58 V and can supply a regulated output voltage between 1.2 V and 48 V. The SYNC input and CLKOUT signal output provide clock synchronization options.
