The LTM®8052/LTM8052A is a 36VIN, 5A, 2-quadrant constant-voltage, constant-current (CVCC) step-down μModule® regulator. Included in the package are the switching controller, power switches, inductor and support components. Operating over an input voltage range of 6V to 36V, the LTM8052/LTM8052A supports an output voltage range of 1.2V to 24V. The LTM8052/LTM8052A is able to sink or source current to maintain voltage regulation up to the positive and negative current limits. This output current limit can be set by a control voltage, a single resistor or a thermistor. LTM8052 features a 125% output overvoltage protection, while LTM8052A does not, allowing operation when the output is above the target regulation point.

The LTM8052/LTM8052A is packaged in a compact (11.25mm × 15mm × 2.82mm) overmolded land grid array (LGA) and ball grid array (BGA) package suitable for automated assembly by standard surface mount equipment. The LTM8052/LTM8052A are available with SnPb (BGA) or RoHS compliant terminal finish.

LTM8052 Sinking and sourcing output current for voltage regulation primarily.
LTM8052A Sinking and sourcing output current for current regulation primarily.
LTM8026 Sourcing more than 3A of output current. (Less than 3A maximum consider LTM8025.)
