LT3090
–36V, 600mA Negative Linear Regulator
with Programmable Current Limit
Description
Demonstration circuit 1948A is a 600mA low dropout
negative linear regulator featuring the LT®3090. This device
is designed for applications requiring negative output voltage, high current with no heat sink, output adjustability to
zero and low dropout voltage.
The LT3090 features fast transient response, high PSRR
and low output noise. The LT3090 supplies 600mA at a
typical dropout voltage of 300mV. Operating quiescent current is nominally 1mA and drops to << 1μA in shutdown.
A single resistor adjusts the LT3090’s precision programmable current limit. The LT3090’s positive or negative
current monitor either sources a current (0.5mA/A) or
sinks a current (1mA/A) proportional to output current.
Built-in protection includes reverse output protection,
internal current limit with foldback and thermal shutdown
with hysteresis.
The LT3090 is offered in a 10 pin DFN package and a
16-lead MSOP package.
The LT3090 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 1948A.

Quick Start Procedure
Demonstration circuit 1948A is easy to set up to evaluate the performance of the LT3090. 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.
1.Use JP2 to set the desired output voltage.
2.Put JP4 on ON position.
3.With power off, connect the input power supply to VIN
and GND.
4.Turn on the power at the VIN.
NOTE. Make sure that the VIN voltage does not exceed
–36V.
5.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.
6.Once the proper output voltages are established, adjust
the loads within the operating range and observe the
output voltage regulation, efficiency and other parameters.
NOTE. Make sure that the power dissipation is limited
below the thermal limit.

Positive or Negative Current Monitor Configuration
There are both positive and negative current monitors on
the LT3090. The configurations for these two monitors are
different. When the positive current monitor is in use, JP1
needs to be configured on IMP position and JP3 needs to
be configured on +3V position. Meantime a +3V external
power supply needs to be connected to +3V turret. Figure 3
shows this configuration.
When the negative current monitor is in use, JP1 needs
to be configured on VIN position and JP3 needs to be
configured on IMN position. There is no external power
supply needed. Figure 4 shows this configuration.
Figure 4. Negative Current Monitor Configuration
Figure 3. Positive Current Monitor Configuration
Cable Drop Compensation Configuration
Demo Circuit 1948A can be configured to evaluate the
cable drop compensation on the LT3090. Note that cable
drop compensation is only using negative current monitor
configuration. JP1, JP3 and R12 shall be configured. JP1
needs to be configured on VIN position. JP3 needs to be
configured on CDC position. R12 needs be replaced by a
calculated value which has the following relationship with
the total output cable impedance (RCBL) below. R12 and
RCBL are both in kΩ:
R12 = RCBL • 1k
Thermal Image
An example thermal image shows the temperature distribution on board. The test is complete in still air at room
temperature with 2.1W power dissipation in the LT3090.
This gives the IC case-to-ambient thermal resistance of
about θJA = 24°C/W on the demo board.
