DC1948A - LT3090 Demo Board | Negative Linear Regulator with Prog Current Limit, -1.5V ≤ VIN ≤ -36V, Vout = -1.25V/-2.5V/-5V/-12V/-15V/-18V @ 600mA

Demonstration circuit 1948A is a 600mA low dropout negative linear regulator featuring the LT®3090. This device is designed for applications requiring negative output voltage, high current with no heat sink, output adjustability to zero and low dropout voltage. The LT3090 features fast transient response, high PSRR and low output noise. The LT3090 supplies 600mA at a typical dropout voltage of 300mV. Operating quiescent current is nominally 1mA and drops to << 1μA in shutdown. A single resistor adjusts the LT3090’s precision programmable current limit. The LT3090’s positive or negative current monitor either sources a current (0.5mA/A) or sinks a current (1mA/A) proportional to output current. Built-in protection includes reverse output protection, internal current limit with foldback and thermal shutdown with hysteresis.
