The LTC3308x operates in forced continuous or pulse skip mode for low noise or low-ripple Burst Mode operation for high efficiency at light loads. This makes the device ideal for battery-powered systems. The IC regulates output voltages as low as 500mV. Other features include output overvoltage protection, short-circuit protection, thermal shutdown, clock synchronization, and up to 100% duty cycle operation for low dropout. The device is available in a low profile 12-lead 2mm×2mm×0.74mm LQFN package with an exposed pad for low thermal resistance.
