Emerging as the latest member of the LDO+ family, Linear Technology’s LT3086 offers functionality previously unavailable in linear regulators. The 40V, 2.1A low dropout linear regulator (LDO) includes current monitoring with externally settable current limit and temperature monitoring with external control of thermal limit temperature. The device includes a programmable power good status flag, cable drop compensation, and paralleling. Other features include a 1.4V to 40V input voltage range, line and load regulation of 0.1%, and a ±1% accurate 50 µA current reference providing ±2% output voltage tolerance over line.
The LT3086 is offered in a variety of thermally enhanced surface mount packages, including a low profile (0.75 mm) 16-lead 4 mm x 5 mm DFN, a 16-lead thermally enhanced TSSOP and a 7-lead DD-Pak. Pricing starts at $3 each/1,000 for the E grade. For more information, visit http://www.linear.com/product/LT3086.
