Linear Technology Corp. introduces the LTC2668-16, a 16-channel, 16-bit voltage output digital-to-analog converter (DAC) with SoftSpan™ outputs, each of which can be independently configured for one of five selectable unipolar and bipolar output ranges up to ±10 V. Each rail-to-rail DAC output is capable of sourcing or sinking 10 mA with guaranteed load regulation and is stable driving capacitive loads as large as 1000 pF.
Linear Technology Corp. announces the LTC2107, a 16-bit 210 Msps high performance high-speed analog-to-digital converter (ADC) for high-end communications receivers and instrumentation applications. The LTC2107 has superior AC performance specifications, achieving 80 dB SNR performance, 4 dB higher than alternative products, and industry leading 98 dB SFDR at baseband.
The LTC3624 is a high efficiency, 17V input capable synchronous buck regulator from Linear Technology that delivers up to 2A of continuous output current to outputs as low as 0.6V. Synchronous rectification delivers efficiencies as high as 95% while Burst Mode® operation requires only 3.5µA of no load quiescent current.
Linear Technology announces the LTC6431-20, a 20 MHz to 2 GHz single-ended input and output fixed gain amplifier offering outstanding 46.2 dBm OIP3 (Output Third Order Intercept) and 2.6 dB noise figure. Its OP1dB (Output 1dB Compression Point) is a best-in-class 22 dBm.
Linear Technology Corp. announces the LT8311, a high efficiency secondary-side MOSFET driver that operates without the need for primary control in an isolated synchronous forward converter. The LT8311’s unique preactive mode eliminates the need for a signal transformer for primary to secondary-side communication by sensing signals on the secondary side to control synchronous rectification. This mode reduces component count and solution size.
Linear Technology Corp. announces the LT3667, a 400 mA, 40 V step-down switching regulator with dual LDO outputs packaged in a 3 mm x 5 mm QFN or MSOP-16E. The LT3667 offers a highly compact, triple output solution for automotive and industrial applications. The LT3667 operates from a VIN range of 4.3 to 40 V with transient protection to 60 V.
Linear Technology introduces the LT6020, a dual 3V to 30V fast settling operational amplifier, featuring 30µV maximum input offset voltage and 0.5µV/°C max VOS drift. While supply current is only 100µA maximum per amplifier, proprietary slew enhancement circuitry provides fast clean output step response. The LT6020 settles to 0.0015% in less than 15µs regardless of whether the output step is 5V or 25V. Specially designed input circuitry maintains high impedance, minimizing current spikes associated with fast steps for input steps up to 5V.
Linear Technology announces the LTC3637, a 76 V input-capable high efficiency buck converter that delivers up to 1 A of continuous output current. It operates from an input voltage range of 4 to 76 V, making it ideal for telecom, industrial, avionic and automotive applications. The LTC3637 utilizes a programmable peak current-mode design to optimize efficiency over a broad range of output currents.
Linear Technology Corp. introduces the LTC3870, a dual phase synchronous step-down slave controller that can generate currents up to 240 A when paired with a companion master controller by extending the phase count in multiphase applications. Compatible master controllers include the LTC3880 and LTC3883 digital power system management controllers.
Linear Technology Corp. announces the automotive (H-grade) and high reliability military (MP-grade) versions of the LT4320, an ideal diode bridge controller for 9 to 72 V systems. The LT4320 replaces a full-wave diode bridge rectifier with a low loss N-channel MOSFET bridge to reduce the power and voltage losses by a factor of ten or more. Power supply size is reduced as the enhanced power efficiency eliminates bulky heat sinks.
