Linear Technology Corp. has introduced the LTC3810H-5, a high input voltage synchronous step-down DC/DC controller with guaranteed specifications for junction temperatures as high as 150°C.
This device employs a constant, on-time valley current-mode control architecture, delivering very low duty cycles and extremely fast transient response with accurate cycle-by-cycle current limit without requiring a sense resistor. It can directly step down voltages from 60V to an output voltage ranging from 0.8V to 93% of VIN. Applications include 48V power conversion in telecom and datacom, as well as automotive and industrial systems susceptible to high surge voltages.
