Which Boost/buck converter? LTC3780 vs LM2577S LM2596S Answered
Hi, brought two boost buck converters to build a bench power supply from a atx psu. Brought the LM version first as i have read previously that these are quite efficient, then seen the LTC one, so thought i might as well buy that as well.
Looks like the LTC board will be able to go down to lower voltages and appears to have a greater efficiency, quoted up too 98%, compared with the LM's at around 80%. Thou i understand that with adjustments changes efficncey.
Which one do you think i should use?
