The LTC3730 is a 3-phase synchronous step-down switching controller with integrated MOSFET drivers. The LTC3730 is a single-IC solution capable of delivering up to 60 A to the microprocessor core. The LTC3730's precision ± 5% output current matching simplifies thermal management of the power supply by spreading the heat evenly among its three output stages. The LTC3730 incorporates a power-saving technique called Stage Shedding to optimize efficiency and improve battery life at light loads by eliminating the gate charging losses and switching losses of two of its output stages.
