Single 36A or Dual 18A µModule Regulator Is 86% Efficient from 12VIN to 1VOUT at Full Load
Excellent heat dissipation, scalable and high output power capability, small footprint and low profile package of the LTM4630 enable system designers to lay out more densely populated boards. Typical of applications include mezzanine boards such as ATCA, µTCA, point-of-load regulation for new processors, ASICs, and the recently introduced <28nm FPGAs as well as high-speed SERDES.
Without requiring a printed circuit board layout changes, system designers can interchange four pin-compatible µModule regulators to obtain different power levels: LTM4628 dual (8A), LTM4620 and LTM4620A (dual 13A) and the LTM4630 (dual 18A). Each product's output operates 180º out-of-phase to minimize both output ripple (when outputs share current) and input ripple, resulting in fewer and smaller capacitors.
The LTM4630 is designed to convert 12VIN to high power (up to 144A) point-of-load voltages down to 0.6V. The input voltage range is 4.5V to 15V (16V max) with output ranging from 0.6V to 1.8V. An internal remote sense amplifier guarantees +/-1.5% accurate output regulation over temperature, line and load, by sensing the voltage at the load and thus compensating for voltage droop caused by printed circuit board trace impedance.
The LTM4630 features fast short-circuit protection where a current foldback technique reduces IOUT to a minimum, preventing the µModule regulator from overheating and protecting the load as well as upstream power supply. Once the short-circuit condition is removed, the LTM4630 resumes operation. The LTM4630 is rated for operation from
-40°C to 125°C. 1,000-piece pricing starts at $35.05 each. For more information, visit www.linear.com/product/LTM4630.
