The LT®8494 is an adjustable frequency (250kHz to 1.5MHz) monolithic switching regulator. Quiescent current can be less than 7μA when operating and is ~0.3μA when SWEN is low. The LT8494 can be configured as either a SEPIC, boost or fly back converter.
2A, 70V SEPIC-Boost DC-DC converter with 7µA Iq – Electronics-Lab
The low ripple Burst Mode operation maintains high efficiency at low output current while keeping output ripple below 10mV. Dual supply pins (VIN and BIAS) allow the part to automatically operate from the most efficient supply. Input supply voltage can be up to 60V for SEPIC topologies and up to 32V (with ride-through up to 60V) for boost and fly back topologies. After start-up, battery life is extended since the part can draw current from its output (BIAS) even when VIN voltage drops below 2.5V.
