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 launched the LTM4625, a 5A, 20VIN step-down µmodule regulator in a 6.25 x 6.25 x 5.01mm BGA package, which, with a few passive components, fits into 0.5cm² on a double-sided PCB.
Linear Technology has launched a military MP-grade version of the LT3014B, a high-voltage, micro-power, low dropout regulator capable of delivering 20mA output current. The LT3014B operates with a continuous input voltage range of 3V to 80V and generates output voltages from 1.22V to 60V with a low dropout of 350mV, making it suitable for automotive, 48V telecom back-up supplies and industrial control applications.
Linear Technology has introduced a wider-temperature-range, H-grade version of the LT3007, the latest member in a series of high-voltage, micropower, robust PNP-based LDOs, featuring an ultra-low 3µA quiescent current. The device’s H-grade 150°C junction temperature rating enables high-temperature or high-power automotive and industrial applications.
Linear Technology has introduced the LT8640, a 5A, 42V-input-capable synchronous step-down switching regulator. Its Silent Switcher architecture, combined with spread spectrum frequency modulation, reduces EMI/EMC emissions by more than 25dB.
Linear Technology has announced the availability of a MIL-STD-1275D compliant surge stopper solution featuring surge stopper ICs LTC4366 and LT4363 demonstrated on evaluation board DC2150A. MIL-STD-1275D is a standard created by the US Department of Defense, specifying the steady state and transient voltage characteristics of a military ground vehicle’s 28VDC power supply.
