Directly Parallel This High Power Density Linear Regulator - LT3080

Robert Dobkin - Chief Technical Officer Sep 15th 2008

The LT3080 is a new architecture for linear regulators. It provides better regulation, a simple output adjustment with a single resistor where the output can be adjusted down to zero. Also, this architecture allows easy paralleling of regulators for “no heatsink” operation in an all surface mount applications. The LT3080 circuit operation and applications for paralleling, spreading the heat, general purpose power supplies and current sources will be shown.
