LT1026 Typical Application


The LT1026 is a switched capacitor voltage doubler and inverter on a single monolithic die. Capable of operating from a 4V to 10V input, it provides ±7V to ±18V output.Output currents of over 10mA are available. Two charge pumps first double the input voltage then invert the doubled voltage. Manufactured in bipolar technology, theLT1026 is not susceptible to latchup and generates up to36V.

The LT1026 offers a convenient way of generating additional system voltages without using inductors. Powering interface circuits, op amps or data acquisition circuitry off logic supplies is simplified.
