AtlanTecRF has two models of Zero Bias Schottky Detectors with high sensitivity and a wide operating temperature range. The first two frequency ranges offered are 10 MHz to 18 GHz and 2.0 to 8.0 GHz, both with sensitivity of 500 mV/mW and TSS of -50 dBm. Flatness over the 10 MHz to 18 GHz frequency band is +/-1.25 dB max and VSWR for each unit is 2.0:1.
M/A-COM Technology Solutions Inc. introduced the industry’s highest power, full E-Band power amplifier, delivering typical Psat of 25.5 dBm for the 71-76 GHz and 81-86 GHz frequency ranges in a single product.
Linear Technology Corp. announces the LT8309, a flyback secondary-side synchronous rectifier driver that replaces the output diode with a MOSFET, allowing up to 10A output current without the use of a heat sink. The maximum output current of a flyback power supply has been limited by the power loss and heat generated from the output diode when no heat sink is used.
Linear Technology Corp. announces the LT8612, a 6 A, 42 V input capable synchronous step-down switching regulator. Synchronous rectification delivers efficiency as high as 95% while Burst Mode® operation keeps quiescent current under 3 µA in no-load standby conditions. Its 3.4 to 42 V input voltage range makes it ideal for automotive and industrial applications. Its internal high efficiency switches deliver up to 6 A of continuous output current to voltages as low as 0.97 V.
Linear Technology Corp. announces the LT8710, its first synchronous SEPIC, inverting, boost and flyback multi-topology DC/DC controller. This synchronous device replaces the output diode with a high efficiency P-channel MOSFET, increasing efficiency, maximum output current (up to 10A) and eliminating the heat sink typically required in medium to high power applications, making the LT8710 highly versatile for a wide range of power supply designs.
Linear Technology Corp. introduces the LTC3875, a dual output current-mode synchronous step-down DC/DC controller that enables the use of very low DC resistance (DCR) power inductors by using a novel DCR sensing architecture that enhances the signal-to-noise ratio of the current sense signal. Power inductor DCR, as low as 0.2 milliohms can be used without a sense resistor to maximize converter efficiency and increase power density. This new DCR sensing technique dramatically reduces the switching jitter normally associated with low DCR sensing applications.
Linear Technology introduces new high reliability H grade and military MP grade versions of the LTC3615 and LTC3615-1, high efficiency, 4 MHz synchronous buck regulators that incorporate a constant frequency, current-mode architecture. Low resistance internal switches enable the LTC3615 to deliver up to 3 A of continuous output current from each channel.
Custom MMIC, a developer of performance-driven monolithic microwave integrated circuits (MMICs), is introducing a new online, easy-to-use, cascade analysis calculator that lets you choose between input or output specifications for each component in your system.
Linear Technology Corp. announces the LT8697, a 2.5 A, 42 V input capable synchronous step-down switching regulator designed to power 5 V USB applications. The LT8697 delivers precise 5 V regulation at a remote USB port using programmable cable drop compensation to accurately correct the voltage drop from a long connecting cable regardless of variations in load current. The LT8697’s forced continuous operation enables the LT8697 to sink current, maintaining full frequency operation at zero load, further enhancing accurate 5V regulation during load transients.
Linear Technology Corp.'s LTC3607 is a high efficiency, 2.25 MHz synchronous dual output buck regulator that incorporates a peak current mode architecture. It can deliver up to 600 mA of continuous output current from each channel at output voltages as low as 0.6V from a 3 mm x 3 mm QFN or a thermally enhanced MSOP-16 package. The LTC3607 accommodates an input voltage range of 4.5 V to 15 V, making it suitable for dual cell Li-Ion applications as well as 5 V and 12 V intermediate bus systems.
