QUICK START GUIDE FOR DEMONSTRATION CIRCUIT 634
AVALANCHE PHOTODIODE BIAS SUPPLY
LT1930A
DESCRIPTION
Demonstration circuit 634 is a low noise avalanche photodiode (APD) bias supply featuring the
LT1930A.
This circuit takes an input voltage from 3V to 5.5V.
The output voltage can be adjusted from 30V to
90V by applying a control voltage (4.5V to 0V) to
the VPROGRAM pin.
The 2.2MHz switching frequency helps to minimize the circuit size.
Design files for this circuit board are available.
Call the LTC factory.

QUICK START PROCEDURE
Demonstration circuit 634 is easy to set up to
evaluate the performance of the LT1930A. Follow
the procedure below:

jumper is in the RUN position. Remember, the
output voltage will be 90V when the control
voltage is 0V.

voltage between 3V and 5.5V; set the control
voltage between 0V and 4.5V. Then turn off the
supplies.
