40V, 200mA Micropower Step-Down DC/DC with TJ(MAX) = 150˚C
MILPITAS, CA – April 23, 2007 – Linear Technology announces the H-grade version of the
LT3470. The LT3470 is a 40V micropower step-down DC/DC converter with integrated boost
and catch diodes in a 2mm x 3mm DFN package. It operates from input voltages of 4V to 40V,
delivering up to 200mA of output current. The LT3470 is optimized for 2-cell Li-Ion, wall
adapter or automotive power sources. Burst Mode® operation reduces quiescent current to only
26uA, making it ideal for applications such as always-on automotive systems. The entire solution
footprint is only 50mm2, making it ideal for space constrained applications.
The H-grade version operates up to a junction temperature of 150˚C, compared to the
E- and I-grade maximum junction temperature of 125°C. All electrical specifications are
identical for the E-, I- and H-grade versions. The H- grade parts are both tested and guaranteed to
the maximum junction temperature of 150˚C. They are well suited for automotive and industrial
applications, which are subjected to high ambient temperatures.
The LT3470HDDB is available from stock in a 2mm x 3mm DFN-8 package. Pricing
starts at $3.07 each for 1,000 piece quantities.
