Milpitas, Calif.Linear Technology Corp. has announced a high reliability (MP) grade, wider temperature range version of the LT3013, a micropower LDO with input voltage capability up to 80V.
The MP grade device is offered in the TSSOP package and operates from -55°C to +125°C junction temperature, featuring low dropout voltage of only 400mV while delivering up to 250mA of output current. The wide VIN capability of 3.3V to 80V and adjustable output from 1.24V up to 60V makes it ideal for automotive, avionics, 48V telecom backup supplies and industrial control applications.
With its low quiescent current of 65µA (operating) and 1µA (shutdown), the LT3013 improves battery life in battery-powered memory "keep alive" systems that require extended run times. The LT3013's PGood flag feature is programmable and indicates output regulation.
