The LTC2925 provides a simple solution to power supply tracking and sequencing requirements. By selecting a few resistors, the supplies can be configured to ramp-up and ramp-down together or with voltage offsets, time delays or different ramp rates.
The LTC2925 controls the outputs of three independent supplies without inserting any pass element losses. For systems that require a fourth supply, or when a supply does not allow direct access to its feedback resistors, one supply can be controlled with a series FET. When the FET is used, an internal remote sense switch compensates for the voltage drop across the FET and current sense resistor, and an electronic circuit breaker provides protection from short-circuit conditions.
The LTC2925 also includes a power good timeout feature that turns off the supplies if an external supply monitor fails to indicate that the supplies have entered regulation within an adjustable time-out period.
