DEMO MANUAL DC1729A
LT3086
40V, 2.1A Low Dropout Adjustable
Linear Regulator with Monitoring
and Cable Drop Compensation
DESCRIPTION
Demonstration circuit 1729A is a 2.1A low dropout adjustable linear regulator featuring the LT®3086. The device is
designed with multiple features and operates over a wide
1.4V to 40V input supply range. The LT3086 requires only
one resistor to set the output voltage from 0.4V to 32V
and it is stable with ceramic output capacitors requiring
a minimum of 10μF.
The key features of the LT3086 include programmable
cable drop compensation, master/slave configuration for
paralleling of multiple devices for higher load current and
heat spreading, output current and temperature monitoring, and programmable power good flag.
PERFORMANCE SUMMARY
The LT3086 is offered in the packages of 16-lead DFN,
16-lead TSSOP, 7-lead DD-PAK, and a 7-lead TO-220.
The LT3086 data sheet gives a complete description of
the device, operation and application information. The data
sheet should be read in conjunction with this quick start
guide for working on or modifying the demo circuit 1729A.

DEMO MANUAL DC1729A
QUICK START PROCEDURE
Demonstration circuit 1729A is easy to set up to evaluate the performance of the LT3086. Refer to Figure 1 for
proper measurement equipment setup and follow the
procedure below:
Note: When measuring the input or output voltage ripple,
care must be taken to avoid a long ground lead on the
oscilloscope probe. Measure the input or output voltage
ripple by touching the probe tip directly across the terminals of the input or output capacitors. See Figure 2 for
proper scope probe technique.
3.Turn on the power at the VIN.
Note: Make sure that the VIN voltage does not exceed 40V.
4.Check for the proper output voltages:
Note: If there is no output, temporarily disconnect the
load to make sure that the load is not set too high or
is shorted.
1.Use JP1 to set the desired output voltage.
5.Once the proper output voltages are established, adjust
the loads within the operating range and observe
the output voltage regulation, efficiency and other
parameters.
2.With power off, connect the input power supply to VIN
and GND.
Note: Make sure that the power dissipation is limited
below the thermal limit.

THERMAL IMAGE
An example thermal image shows the temperature distribution on the board. The test is done in still air at room
temperature with 2.2W power dissipation in the LT3086.
This gives the IC case-to-ambient thermal resistance
θJA = 23°C/W on the demo board.
Figure 3. Temperature Rise at 2.2W Dissipation
CABLE DROP COMPENSATION
The power good setting jumper JP2 on the DC1729A is
used for setting the power good threshold for the corresponding output voltages. JP2 needs to be configured
at the same position as JP1 for any specific output volt-
ages. For example, when JP1 is configured on 7 and 8 for
3.3VOUT, JP2 also needs to be configured on 7 and 8 for
the correct power good setting for 3.3VOUT.
POWER GOOD SETTING
The cable drop compensation on the DC1729A can be
turned on by placing R4 (RCDC) with a value which is governed by the following equation provided in the data sheet:
RCDC =
RMON •RSET
3000 •R WIRE
Please note that when cable drop compensation is activated,
it also changes the power good threshold. R23 needs to
be the same value as R4 in order to keep the same output
voltage power good threshold at the load.
