Low Iq Surge Stopper for High Reliability Current Sensitive Applications

Protecting sensitive electronic circuitry from voltage transients is an essential part of any system, be it automotive, industrial, avionic or battery-powered portable applications. Linear Technology offers a wide variety of solutions for these applications with the Surge Stopper family. LTC4380 is the exciting new member of this family, providing voltage suppression as well as current limit, being fully operational with only 8uA of quiescent current. While traditional protection circuitry relies on bulky inductors, capacitors, fuses and transient voltage suppressors (TVS) to clamp the transient, the LTC4380 protects by regulating a series N-channel MOSFET.
