DEMO MANUAL DC1505A
LTC4360 Overvoltage
Protection Controller
DESCRIPTION
Demonstration circuit DC1505A features the LTC®4360 an
overvoltage protection controller that safeguards 2.5V to
5.5V systems from input supply overvoltage. The LTC4360
is designed for portable devices with multiple power supply options including wall adapters, car battery adapters
and USB ports.
provides power good monitoring for VIN. The LTC4360-1
features a soft shutdown controlled by the ON pin. The
LTC4360-2 has a GATEP pin that drives an optional external P-channel MOSFET for negative voltage protection.
Following an overvoltage condition, the LTC4360 automatically restarts with a start-up delay.
The LTC4360 controls an external N-channel MOSFET in
series with the input power supply. During overvoltage
transients, the LTC4360 turns off the MOSFET within 1µs,
isolating downstream components from the input supply.
Inductive cable transients are absorbed by the MOSFET
and load capacitance. In most applications, the LTC4360
provides protection from transients up to 80V without
requiring transient voltage suppressors or other external
components.
DC1505A demonstrates three protection schemes selected
with a jumper: (A) overvoltage protection, (B) overvoltage
and negative voltage protection, and (C) overvoltage, negative voltage, and reverse current protection. Each option
has an output LED and can be applied to a USB protected
output. Protection (A) features the LTC4360-1 with ON
control. Protection (B) and (C) feature the LTC4360-2 and
a P-channel MOSFET driven by GATEP.
The LTC4360 has a delayed start-up and adjustable
dV/dt ramp-up for inrush current limiting. A PWRGD pin

current protection select (C) OV/NV/RC, connect
to OUT(C). Figure 2c.
1. Connect a power supply across VIN and GND.
4. For USB protection, connect a USB cable from J2 to
the USB device (Figure 3). Select the protection type
at JP1 and match JP3 to JP1. Connect a second USB
cable from a computer to J1.
2. Select protection type at JP1 and connect a voltmeter
across the corresponding output and GND:
a.For overvoltage protection select (A) OV and
connect to OUT(A). Figure 2a.
3. Select ENABLE at JP2 for protection (A) to enable.

OPERATION
The DC1505A is used to evaluate the LTC4360 in three
protection configurations selected at JP1. The device in
need of protection is connected to one of the three OUT test
points or to the USB output connector J2. An input supply
is connected at VIN or a USB source is connected at J1.
ON Control
protect the output against an inadvertent negative voltage
connection at the input. The amber VIN LED indicates if the
input supply is on while a green OUT(B) LED indicates the
gate is on and the input is passed over to the output. A red
–VIN LED indicates if a negative input voltage is present.
Protection (C) OV/NV/RC
The first selection at JP1 is protection (A) OV which protects against overvoltage. The LTC4360 turns on a single
N-channel MOSFET when the input voltage is below the
overvoltage threshold. An amber input LED indicates if
the input supply is on while a green OUT(A) LED indicates
the gate is on and the input is passed over to the output.
The third selection at JP1 is protection (C) OV/OC/NV/RC
which protects against overvoltage, overcurrent, negative voltage and reverse current. The LTC4360 turns on
back-to-back N-channel MOSFETs when the input voltage
is below the overvoltage threshold. The back-to-back
N-channel MOSFETs blocks reverse current feeding in to
the input. A P-channel MOSFET is driven by the GATEP
pin of the LTC4360-2 to protect the output against an
inadvertent negative voltage connection at the input. The
amber VIN LED indicates if the input supply is on while a
green OUT(C) LED indicates the gate is on and the input
is passed over to the output. The red –VIN LED indicates
if a negative input voltage is present.
Protection (B) OV/NV
USB Protection
The second selection at JP1 is protection (B) OV/NV which
protects against overvoltage and negative voltage. The
LTC4360 turns on an N-channel MOSFET when the input
voltage is below the overvoltage threshold. A P-channel
MOSFET is driven by the GATEP pin of the LTC4360-2 to
DC1505A also provides connection for USB protection.
First connect a USB device with a USB cable at J2. Select
the protection type at JP1 and match this with JP3. Select
ENABLE at JP2. The USB source can then be connected
at J1.
The ON pin for protection (A) with the LTC4360-1 is
controlled at JP2. Select ENABLE to enable the selected
protection, or DISABLE to enter a low current sleep mode.
