Milpitas, Calif. Linear Technology Corp. has introduced the LTM4600HVMPV, a complete and encapsulated 10-A switching DC/DC regulator system, the first device in a new family of uModule (micromodule) DC/DC regulators designed for military and avionics applications.
Available in a 15 x 15 x 2.8-mm military plastic LGA package, the LTM4600HVMPV is fully tested over the temperature range of -55°C to 125°C. The LTM4600HVMPV is a synchronous switchmode DC/DC step-down regulator with built-in inductor, supporting power components and compensation circuitry. The device operates from an input supply range of 4.5 V to 28 V and regulates an output voltage from 0.6 V to 5 V.
This DC/DC uModule regulator can deliver 10 A continuous load current (14 A peak) and achieve efficiencies as high as 92%. The device is self-protected against output over-voltage and short circuit conditions.
Pricing: starts at $36.95 each in quantities of 1,000.
