With the advent of Linear Technology’s newer IC designs and development for improved thermal performance and faster switching frequency, a new family of buck-boost µModule regulators are introduced with the inductor on-board the device (figure 3). The LTM8055 and LTM8056 are the first members of this family with the LTM8054 (lowest power of the three) to be released in a few months.

 

In this webinar, the focus is on discussing the benefits that the LTM8055 and LTM8056 with the LTM8054 can provide to the designer.
