i am using the LTC3440 to convert the voltage from a LiPo Battery into a stable 3.3V. As you can see in my schematic, i am the following the datasheet. My circuit is drawing 300mA in worst case.
I did some tests with 300mA Load and the outputs is stable on 3.3V. The problem is the temperature on the IC. I am going to measure the temperature but its really hot ( cannot touch it for more than 2-3 seconds).
The inductor is rated for 1.2A max DC current and i am using the max frequency on the converter.
Should i increase the inductors value and decrease the frequency?
