LT3471 to power a dual power supply

Hello,

I am working on an application which needs a dual power supply. The rest of circuitry is ready and while looking for a dual power supply IC, i came across LT3471. My application would need a +25v and -25v supply, with a current requirement of 100mA on each rail. I just want to confirm whether my judgement of this IC regarding the requirement is correct. 

Parallelly, i will be simulating the circuit on LTSpice and check myself for any issues that might come en-route. 

Looking forward to suggestions.

    Hi,

    I would recommend you use separate converters for your application. If your input voltage is 5V or more, the LT3471 will require special care with soft-start. That is in order to ensure the switch is not subjected to simultaneous high voltage and current during startup. Please refer to the last section of the Soft-Start paragraph on page 7. 

    The LT3580 would be a much better part for your application, but yes, it would require two separate parts. 

    Depending on your input voltage range there might be other options, better suited for your application.

    Cheers!
