Analog Devices Announces Active Rectifier Controller with Reverse Protection

Analog Devices » LT8672

Analog Devices announces the Power by Linear™ LT8672, an active rectifier controller with reverse input protection to –40 V. Its 3 V to 42 V input voltage capability is ideal for automotive applications which must regulate through cold-crank and stop-start scenarios with minimum input voltages as low as 3.0 V and load dump transients up to 40 V. The LT8672 drives an external N-channel MOSFET, offering a 20 mV drop, reducing power dissipation by 90% compared to a Schottky diode, eliminating requirements for a costly heat sink. The ultrafast transient response enables it to meet stringent automotive applications requiring AC input ripple rectification up to 100 kHz. Additionally, its 20 μA quiescent current while operating and 3.5 μA in shutdown are ideal for always-on systems. The combination of the MSOP-10 package and external MOSFET ensures a compact solution footprint.

Analog Devices - LT8672

The LT8672’s solution offers the combination of 3 V minimum input capability and a 20 mV drop, enabling it to ease the minimum input voltage requirement during cold-crank and stop-start, providing simpler and more efficient circuits. If the input power source fails or is shorted, a very fast turn-off minimizes reverse current transients. Also, a power good pin signals when the external MOSFET is ready to take load current.
