Active Rectifier Controller with Reverse Protection

Molly Zhu - Applications Eng Dec 20th 2017
As the current level continues to increase in automotive electronic systems, designers can no longer use conventional blocking Schottky diodes due to high power dissipation and thermal issues. The LT8672 is an active rectifier controller with reverse current protection that can replace the diode. The LT8672 operates at the ...



Dual Input Prioritizers with Built-In Battery Monitoring

Rajesh Venugopal - Sr Design Engr Dec 8th 2016
Selecting the appropriate input supply to power a system with multiple input power sources is not a trivial task. This video discusses challenges associated with the supply selection process, also known as prioritization. The LTC4419 and its features are introduced to show case how the product solves key prioritization challenges ...



Prioritized PowerPath Controllers; LTC4417/4419/4420 - Video Product Brief

Pinkesh Sachdev - Product Marketing Engineer - Mixed Signal Sep 1st 2016
PowerPath™ prioritizers are low operating current circuits that provide backup switchover power for keeping critical circuitry alive during brown out and power loss conditions based on a user-defined priority. Priority is defined by pin assignment, with V1 assigned the highest priority and V3 the lowest priority. ...



Surge Stoppers: Overvoltage & Overcurrent Protection ICs - Video Product Brief

Pinkesh Sachdev - Product Marketing Engineer - Mixed Signal Aug 25th 2016
Historically, overvoltage and overcurrent protection (e.g., load dump protection) was achieved using bulky capacitors, TVS diodes and fuses, but this discrete solution consumes a lot of real estate, and does not offer continuous operation through transient events. Linear Technology's family of High Voltage Surge Stoppers, ...



Buck-Boost DC/DC Converter with Intelligent PowerPath

James Noon - Applications Engineering Section Leader May 16th 2016
The LTC3118 combines a low-loss PowerPath controller with a single inductor buck-boost converter, resulting in a compact platform for multiple input designs. The LTC3118’s unique switch architecture allows operation from higher or lower voltage on either input, to a regulated output voltage. The wide input/output voltage ...



LT4321 PoE Ideal Diode Bridge Controller - Video Product Brief

Alison Steer - Product Marketing Manager Sep 11th 2014
The LT®4321 is a dual ideal diode bridge controller that enables a Power over Ethernet (PoE) powered device (PD) to receive power in either voltage polarity from RJ-45 data pairs, spare pairs, or both. The LT4321 and eight N-channel MOSFETs replace the eight diodes in a passive PoE rectifier bridge. The LT4321 eases ...



LT4320 Ideal Diode Bridge Controller - Video Product Brief

Alison Steer - Product Marketing Manager Sep 11th 2014
The LT®4320/LT4320-1 are ideal diode bridge controllers that drive four N-channel MOSFETs, supporting voltage rectification from DC to 600Hz typical. By maximizing available voltage and reducing power dissipation (see thermograph comparison below), the ideal diode bridge simplifies power supply design and reduces power ...



MOSFET Failure Protection for Single Output PolyPhase Converter

Mike Shriver - Senior Applications Engineer Mar 19th 2014
The low output voltage rails in many of today’s leading edge communication, networking, computer and industrial systems must be designed to meet the competing demands of higher load current, higher efficiency and diminishing amounts of board real estate. For cases where the load current is high, the most effective approach ...



LT4321/LT4275 LTPoE++/PoE+/PoE PD Controller TechClips

Oct 24th 2013
Power over ethernet is a continuing trend in the Ethernet world. The current IEEE standard allows for up to 25.5W of PD input power. LTPoE++ is Linear Technology's solution to meet the demand for greater power with 38.7W, 52.7W, 70W and 90W power levels. Heat generated by Power Over Ethernet powered device (PD) is a design ...

LTC4370 Two Supply Diode-OR Current Balancing Controller - Video Product Brief

Alison Steer - Product Marketing Manager Jun 8th 2012
The LTC®4370 is a two-supply current sharing controller which incorporates MOSFET ideal diodes. The diodes block reverse and shoot-through currents during start-up and fault conditions. Their forward voltage is adjusted to share the load currents between supplies. Unlike other sharing methods, neither a share bus nor trim pins ...
