Linear Technology’s LTM8050 is a 2A µModule regulator that is protected against input surges up to 60 V and can be configured as a step-down or inverting converter. With 60 V input voltage protection, the regulator can be used safely in applications where the main power bus may be susceptible to large voltage spikes or deviations, such as automotive, avionics, factory automation, heavy equipment, transportation, robotics and industrial systems. Operating input voltage is 3.6 V to 58 V (60 Vmax) and output is adjustable with one resistor from 0.8 V to 24 V (-0.8 V to -24 V as an inverter). The device includes inductor, dc/dc regulator, power FETs and compensation circuitry, all housed in a 9 x 15 x 4.92 mm BGA package, and up to four regulators can be current shared to deliver as much as 8 A load current. In switching regulator noise sensitive systems, switching frequency can be adjusted over a 100 kHz to 2.4 MHz range with an external resistor. Available for operation in two temperature ranges (-40°C to 125°C and -55°C to 125°C), pricing for LTM8050 µModule regulator starts at $14.00 each/1,000.
