Fast 60V High Side N-Channel MOSFET Driver Provides 100% Duty Cycle Capability

Analog Devices, Inc., which recently acquired Linear Technology Corporation, announces the LTC7004, a high speed, high side N-channel MOSFET driver that operates up to a 60V supply voltage. Its internal charge pump fully enhances an external N-channel MOSFET switch, enabling it to remain on indefinitely. The LTC7004’s powerful 1Ω gate driver can easily drive large gate capacitance MOSFETs with very short transition times and 35ns propagation delays, well suited for both high frequency switching and static switch applications.

36V, 2A Monolithic Synchronous Step-Down LED Driver with Silent Switcher Topology Minimizes EMI Concerns

Analog Devices, Inc., which recently acquired Linear Technology Corporation, announces the LT3932, a monolithic, synchronous, step-down DC/DC converter with internal 36V, 2A power switches and an internal PWM generator. Its fixed frequency, peak current mode control accurately regulates current within ±1.5% for strings of up to 2A LEDs. Its integrated PWM generator offers a 128:1 dimming ratio. If dimming ratios of up to 5000:1 are required, the LT3932 and an external PWM generator can accommodate these applications.

Analog Devices Introduces ADP8866 LED Charge Pump Backlight Driver

Analog Devices, Inc. (ADI) has introduced the ADP8866 LED charge pump backlight driver with independent control of nine LED current sinks, programmable LED blinking sequences and low operating current drain. Independent LED control allows the convenient control of backlighting LEDs and status indicator LEDs with one part. Programmable fade on/off and blinking sequences allow complex LED effects to be generated automatically, saving processor bandwidth and power. A built-in charge pump automatically adjusts its gain to efficiently power the LEDs under...
