38V, 10A DC/DC μModule® Regulator With Fault Protection Powers High-End ASICs & FPGAs

Pulsed loading conditions and abnormal disturbances within the electrical systems found in industrial, vehicle, avionic, and other harsh environments can induce wildly varying voltage transients (surges) on what is nominally a 24VDC or 36VDC distributed bus. The disturbances can be between a millisecond to a minute in length, with excursions reaching (or exceeding) 38V and falling below 6V. The severity rating often becomes more of a concern at higher input voltages.

The LTM4641 challenges this notion by protecting the load from seeing excessive voltage stress, even when its high side switching MOSFET is short-circuited. The LTM®4641 is a 10A switch mode step-down DC/DC μModule® regulator with advanced input and load protection features. Trip detection thresholds for the following faults are customizable: input undervoltage, overtemperature, input overvoltage, and output overvoltage. Fault conditions can be set for latchoff or hysteretic restart response -- or disabled. Included in the package are the switching controller and housekeeping ICs, power MOSFETs, inductor, overvoltage drivers, biasing circuitry, and supporting components. Operating from input voltages of 4V to 38V (4.5V startup), the device supports output voltages from 0.6V to 6V, set by an external resistor network remote sensing the point-of-load’s voltage.

LATEST ARCHIVED BROADCAST
As data rates begin to move beyond 25 Gbps channels, new problems arise. Getting to 50 Gbps channels might not be possible with the traditional NRZ (2-level) signaling. PAM4 lets data rates double with only a small increase in channel bandwidth by sending two bits per symbol. But, it brings new measurement and analysis problems. Signal integrity sage Ransom Stephens will explain how PAM4 differs from NRZ and what to expect in design, measurement, and signal analysis.
