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.
The LTC3110 is a 2A bidirectional buck-boost DC/DC regulator with capacitor charger and balancer. Its wide 0.1V to 5.5V capacitor/battery voltage and 1.8V to 5.25V system backup voltage ranges make it well suited to a wide variety of backup applications using supercapacitors or batteries.
Linear Technology has introduced the LTC3110, a bidirectional, programmable input current buck-boost supercapacitor charger with active charge balancing for one- or two-series supercapacitors.
Linear Technology has launched the LTM4675, a dual 9A or single 18A, µModule(micromodule) step-down DC/DC regulator with PMBus serial digital interface in a small 11.9mm x 16mm x 3.51mm BGA package.
Linear Technology has introduced the LTC2348-18, an 18-bit, eight-channel simultaneous sampling successive approximation register (SAR) analogue-to-digital (ADC) offering excellent performance and flexibility. The LTC2348-18 is suitable for high-performance industrial process control, test and measurement, power line monitoring, instrumentation and automatic test equipment applications.
Linear Technology’s LTC2379-18 uses SAR ADC technology, achieving 18-bit performance at 1.6Msps with 101dB SNR. In this video, a designer of the LTC2379-18 demonstrates the performance of the device and shares his insights into the design of this 18-bit ADC.
