Linear Technology Corp. is offering the LT3511, a high voltage isolated monolithic flyback switching regulator that simplifies isolated DC/DC converter design.
The LT3511 does not require an optocoupler, third winding or signal transformer for feedback since the output voltage is sensed from the primary-side flyback signal. The LT3511 operates over a 4.5V to 100V input voltage range, has a 240mA, 150V power switch and delivers up to 2.5 Watts of output power, making it well suited for a wide variety of telecom, datacom, automotive, industrial and medical applications.
VIN Range from 4.5V to 100V
Onboard 240mA, 150V Integrated Power Switch
No Optocoupler, Transformer or Third Winding Required for Feedback
VOUT Set with Two External Resistors
Programmable Under Voltage Lockout
Output Voltage Temperature Compensation
Pricing: Starts at $2.95 each in 1000-piece quantities.
David Patterson, known for his pioneering research that led to RAID, clusters and more, is part of a team at UC Berkeley that recently made its RISC-V processor architecture an open source hardware offering. We talk with Patterson and one of his colleagues behind the effort about the opportunities they see, what new kinds of designs they hope to enable and what it means for today’s commercial processor giants such as Intel, ARM and Imagination Technologies.
