The LTC2950 is a micropower, wide input voltage range, pushbutton ON/OFF controller. The part contains a pushbutton input with independently programmable ON and OFF debounce times that control the toggling of an open drain enable output. The part also contains a simple microprocessor interface to allow for proper system housekeeping prior to power down. Under system fault conditions, an internal KILL timer ensures proper power down.
The LTC2950 operates over a wide 2.7V to 26.4V input voltage range to accommodate a wide variety of input power supplies. Very low quiescent current (6μA typical) makes the LTC2950 ideally suited for battery powered applications. Two versions of the part are available to accommodate either positive or negative enable polarities. The parts are available in either 8-lead 3mm × 2mm DFN or ThinSOT packages.

Product Lifecycle Production
At least one model within this product family is in production and available for purchase. The product is appropriate for new designs but newer alternatives may exist.
Evaluation Kits (1)
Demonstration Circuits 826C-A and 826C-B feature the LTC2950-2 and the LTC2951-2 respectively, which are low power, wide input voltage range, Push Button On/Off Controllers. A push button switch shorts the /PB pin to ground which in turn sets the /EN pin low. Shorting /PB to ground a second time subsequently resets the /EN pin high. The /EN pin is used to connect to a DC/DC converter shutdown to control the turn on and off of the circuit, simulated with a green LED on the DC826C-A/DC826C-B.
