Linear Technology announces the LTC3129, a synchronous buck-boost converter that delivers up to 200 mA of continuous output current from a wide variety of input sources including single or multiple-cell batteries as well as solar panels and supercaps. Its 2.42 to 15 V input range and 1.4 to 15.75 V output range provide a regulated output with inputs above, below or equal to the output.
Linear Technology Corp. announces the LT3030,a dual low noise, low dropout regulator with independent inputs and independent shutdown control for each channel. The device delivers continuous output current up to 750 mA on one channel and 250 mA on the other channel, with a low dropout voltage of only 300 mV at full load.
Linear Technology Corp. introduces the LTC2314-14, a 14 bit 4.5 Msps successive approximation register (SAR) ADC in a tiny 8-lead TSOT-23 package, offering up to 90% reduction in size over competing solutions for space-conscious applications. This small SAR ADC integrates a precision 2.048 V/4.096 V reference with 7 ppm/°C typical and guaranteed 20 ppm/°C maximum temperature coefficient into an 8 mm² footprint.
Linear Technology Corp. introduces the LTM8001, a step-down µModule® (micromodule) regulator consisting of an array of five low noise 1A linear regulators. The linear regulators are also configurable to deliver 2A, 3A, 4A or 5A, depending on the number and combination of current shared outputs.
Linear Technology introduces the LT6016 and LT6017, dual and quad wide input range operational amplifiers. These amplifiers combine high precision with the ruggedness and versatility of LTC’s unique Over-the-Top® architecture. Input offset voltage is 50 µV max, input bias current is 5 nA, and low frequency noise is 0.5 µVP-P.
Linear Technology announces the LS8 reference family, a series of hermetic precision voltage references packaged in a 5 x 5 mm surface mount, low stress ceramic package. These precision voltage references offer outstanding long term stability and consistent predictable behavior, over time and operating conditions. For instrumentation that demands the best possible performance over years or decades of operation, the LS8 package offers an alternative to large metal can or ceramic DIP packages.
Linear Technology Corp. announces the LT8705, a very high efficiency (up to 98%) synchronous buck-boost DC/DC controller that operates from input voltages above, below or equal to the regulated output voltage. This device has four feedback loops to regulate the input current/voltage, along with the output current/voltage.The LT8705 can be used in a wide range of applications such as a voltage stabilizer in telecom and automotive requirements.
Linear Technology Corporation introduces the LTM8045, a 2.8 to 18 V input, multi-topology DC/DC µModule® (micromodule) converter, with onboard inductor, power switch and DC/DC controller delivering up to 700 mA output current. The LTM8045 is designed for point-of-load regulation in communications, imaging and handheld test equipment.
Linear Technology announces the LTC6090, a precision operational amplifier that operates on a supply voltage up to 140 V (or ±70 V). Its combination of rail-to-rail output, 3 pA (typical) input bias current, 1.6 mV maximum input offset voltage and 3.5 µVP-P low frequency noise delivers the precision required for high performance ATE, piezo driver, and DAC buffer applications.
Linear Technology announces the LTC6430-15, a 15dB amplifier, which achieves high dynamic range in a 100 Ohm differential environment from 20 MHz to 1GHz and beyond. Two performance grades are available: at 240MHz, the A-grade OIP3 is typically 50 dBm and is fully tested and guaranteed to be a minimum of 47dBm. Noise Figure is 3dB, which corresponds to an input-referred amplifier noise of 1nV/√Hz.
