C026-500x500-500x500

This project will provide 3.3 V @ 800 mA DC Regulated Supply. The project is based on the LM1117 Low-Dropout Linear Regulator. The LM1117-3.3 is a low dropout voltage regulator with a dropout of 3.3V @ 800mA of load current.

8056

The LTM8056 from Linear Technology is a 58 VIN, buck-boost μModule® (micromodule) regulator which requires just a few external passive components to complete the regulator design. Included in the package are the switching controller, power switches, inductor and support components. The basic external components needed are a single resistor to set the switching frequency, a resistor divider network to set the output voltage together with input and output capacitors. Other features such as input and output average current regulation may be implemented with just a few additional components. The LTM8056 operates with an input voltage ranging from 5 V to 58 V and can supply a regulated output voltage between 1.2 V and 48 V. The SYNC input and CLKOUT signal output provide clock synchronization options.

by Steven Keeping:

Such is the popularity of DC-to-DC voltage converters (“switching regulators”)––due to their high efficiency across wide input- and output-voltage ranges––that chip makers have focused a lot of research dollars on squeezing the essential components of the devices into modules. These modules typically include pulse-width-modulation (PWM) controllers and switching elements in a single, compact package, easing the design work for the engineer.

However, until recently, it has proven difficult to include the energy-storage device (the inductor) inside the package. This has dictated that the engineer must specify, source, and design-in the inductor as a peripheral component, adding complexity and consuming board space. Now, a new generation of high-frequency switching regulators has enabled the use of smaller inductors enabling the devices to be housed inside the component vendor’s package.

MIC28511 TYPICAL APPLICATION_1ST PG

by Susan Nordyk @ edn.com:

A family of pin-compatible synchronous step-down switching regulators with integrated power switches, the MIC28511/12/13 from Micrel, supplies up to 4 A of output current (MIC28513) and accepts a wide input supply range of 4.6 V to 70 V (MIC28512). The devices have an operating junction temperature range of -40°C to +125°C and come in very small 24-pin, 3×4-mm FCQFN packages.

The MIC28511/12/13 regulators are offered in both Hyper Speed Control and HyperLight Load architectures, which allow for high VIN (low VOUT) operation and fast transient response, while reducing the required output capacitance and providing good light-load efficiency. They furnish an adjustable output voltage as low as 0.8 V with guaranteed accuracy to within ±1%.

TLV7101828DSE

This application details how a dual-channel LDO may be used to provide a dynamic voltage scaling output. This function is useful when powering microcontrollers that have a wide operating voltage range: it is advantageous to lower the operating voltage of the MCU in order to achieve lower power consumption (when possible).

The MSP430G2001, for example, has a supply voltage range that varies depending on the system frequency and programming modes. As an example, when the system frequency is 1MHz and flash memory programming is not required, the supply voltage range spans from 1.8V to 3.6V. However, if flash memory programming is required, the supply voltage range contracts to 2.2V to 3.6V.

3042

The LT®3042 is a high performance low dropout linear regulator featuring LTC’s ultralow noise and ultrahigh PSRR architecture for powering noise sensitive RF applications. Designed as a precision current reference followed by a high performance voltage buffer, the LT3042 can be easily paralleled to further reduce noise, increase output current and spread heat on the PCB.

The device supplies 200mA at a typical 350mV dropout voltage. Operating quiescent current is nominally 2mA and drops to <<1μA in shutdown. The LT3042’s wide output voltage range (0V to 15V) while maintaining unitygain operation provides virtually constant output noise, PSRR, bandwidth and load regulation, regardless of the programmed output voltage. Additionally, the regulator features programmable current limit, fast start-up capability and programmable power good to indicate output voltage regulation.

AppSchemx600

by Steve Taranovich @ edn.com:

Linear Technology Corporation just announced another in its series of power management ICs for automotive usage, the LT8640, a 5A, 42V input capable synchronous step-down switching regulator. A unique Silent Switcher™ architecture, combined with spread spectrum frequency modulation, reduces EMI/EMC emissions by more than 25dB even with switching frequencies in excess of 2MHz, enabling it to easily pass the automotive CISPR25, Class 5 peak limits. This feature varies the clock with a triangular frequency modulation of +20%.

ISL8203M

by elektor.com:

Intersil have introduced a single chip just 9 x 6.5 mm which contains just about all the control features (including the output stages) needed to build a dual 0.8 to 5 V power supply with 3 A per channel output capability. The ISL8203M can also supply 6 A in current sharing operation.

The ISL8203M is an integrated step-down power module optimized for generating low output voltages down to 0.8V. The input supply voltage range spans from 2.85 V to 6 V. The two channels are clocked 180° out-of-phase to help reduce input RMS current and EMI. While in current sharing mode this interleaving of the two channels is beneficial for reducing input and output voltage ripple.

by elektor.com:

The LTM4625 from Linear Technology is a switching mode μModule (micromodule) regulator in a tiny 6.25 mm × 6.25 mm × 5.01 mm BGA package. Like many of the newer regulator designs, the package includes the switching controller; power FETs, inductor and support components. Operating over an input voltage range of 4 V to 20 V (or 2.375 V to 20 V with an external bias supply) the LTM4625 supports an output voltage range of 0.6 V to 5.5 V, set by a single external resistor. Its high efficiency design delivers up to 5A continuous output current. Only bulk input and output capacitors are needed.
