LT3741 DC/DC converter
The LT3741 from Linear Technology is a synchronous step-down DC/DC converter that is ideal for applications ranging from battery and supercap chargers and laser drivers to high-current LED lighting.
The LT3741 has been designed to accurately (+/-6 per cent) regulate output currents up to 20A.
It features a 6V to 36V input range, constant current and constant voltage operation.
The LT3741 uses two external switching Mosfets and delivers up to 20A of continuous output current over a wide voltage range of 0V to 34V.
Efficiencies as high as 95 per cent eliminate the need for external heat sinking.
The LT3741's frequency can be programmed and synchronised between 200kHz and 1MHz, allowing designers to optimise efficiency while minimising external component size.
Combined with a 4 x 4mm QFN-20 or thermally enhanced TSSOP-20 package, the LT3741 provides a highly compact constant voltage and current solution.
The LT3741 uses an average current mode control scheme to maintain inductor current regulation over a wide output voltage range of 0V to VIN-2V.
The regulated current is set by an analogue voltage on the CTRL pins and an external sense resistor.
The LT3741's topology enables it to both source and sink current.
Its regulated output voltage and overvoltage protection are set with an external voltage divider.
Additional features include an accurate external voltage reference, a programmable under-voltage lockout (ULVO) pin and thermal shutdown.
The LT3741EUF is available in a 20-pin 4 x 4mm QFN package and the LT3741EFE is available in a thermally enhanced TSSOP-20.
Extended temperature versions - 'I' Grades - the LT3741IUF and LT3741IFE, are also available.
Linear Technology has introduced the LTC6268-10 single and LTC6269-10 dual 4GHz FET-input op amps for high-dynamic-range and high-speed transimpedance amplifier (TIA) applications. The new decompensated amplifiers extend the speed and dynamic range capabilities of this ultra-low bias current op amp series for applications with a gain of 10 or higher.
Linear Technology has introduced the LT8616, a 42V-input-capable, high-efficiency dual synchronous monolithic step-down switching regulator. Its dual-channel design delivers independent 2.5A and 1.5A continuous current to outputs as low as 0.8V.
Linear Technology has introduced the LTC2000A: a 16-bit, 2.7Gsps digital-to-analogue converter (DAC) optimised for high-end broadband wired-and-wireless communications and radar applications.
Linear Technology has introduced the LTC4234, a 20A Hot Swap controller with integrated MOSFET and current sensing, providing a small-footprint hot-plug solution for high-density circuit boards. Specified over the 0ºC to +70ºC commercial, -40ºC to +85ºC industrial and -40ºC to +125ºC automotive temperature ranges, the LTC4234 is offered in a 38-pin 5 x 9mm QFN package.
Linear Technology is offering the LTC3892: a high-voltage dual-output synchronous step-down DC/DC controller that draws only 29µA when one output is active and 34µA when both outputs are enabled.
