The LT3042 is a high performance low dropout linear regulator featuring LTC’s ultralow noise and ultrahigh PSRR architecture for powering noise sensitive RF applications. Designed as a precision current reference followed by a high performance voltage buffer, the LT3042 can be easily paralleled to further reduce noise, increase output current and spread heat on the PCB.

The device supplies 200mA at a typical 350mV dropout voltage. Operating quiescent current is nominally 2mA and drops to <<1μA in shutdown. The LT3042’s wide output voltage range (0V to 15V) while maintaining unity-gain operation provides virtually constant output noise, PSRR, bandwidth and load regulation, independent of the programmed output voltage. Additionally, the regulator features programmable current limit, fast start-up capability and programmable power good to indicate output voltage regulation.

The LT3042 is stable with a minimum 4.7μF ceramic output capacitor. Built-in protection includes reverse battery protection, reverse current protection, internal current limit with foldback and thermal limit with hysteresis. The LT3042 is available in thermally enhanced 10-Lead MSOP and 3mm × 3mm DFN packages.

AD-PAARRAY3552R-SL

RF Front-end GaN Power Amplifier Biasing, Protection, and Control Reference Design

RF Front-end GaN Power Amplifier Biasing, Protection, and Control Reference Design

Features and Benefits

  • Designed to cover full Tx signal chains with integrated MCU and user-friendly GUI for faster and easier integration
  • Supports fault event protection - overvoltage (OV), overcurrent (OC), and overtemperature (OT)
  • Supports ultrafast sub-µs GaN gate voltage switching ~ (<1 µs)
  • Supports ultrafast (<10 µs) fault event protection from detection up to GaN gate pinch-off
  • Wide range of gate bias voltages from -10 V to +10 V
  • Configurable power-up and power-down sequence

Product Detail

The AD-PAARRAY3552R-SL reference design provides control, protection, and proper biasing sequence for GaN power amplifier (PA) arrays. The design incorporates the AD3553R high-speed, dual-channel, 16-bit DAC to support the ultrafast sub-µs voltage settling time of GaN gates.

Key fault events, including overvoltage, overcurrent, and overtemperature, are effectively managed by the LTC7000, a static switch driver responsible for system fault protection.

The on-board MAX32666 ultralow-power ARM® Cortex®-M4 microprocessor provides essential debug and programming features for a comprehensive software development experience with the system. The system's firmware is built on ADI's open-source no-OS framework and includes a user-friendly graphical interface (GUI) for evaluation. Updates are easily applied through an SWD UART bootloader, streamlining prototyping.

The system can be powered by an external +48 V supply, requiring high current capabilities.

DC2429A

LT3042 Low Noise PLL/VCO Power Supply Board with Onboard 100MHz Reference Frequency

LT3042 Low Noise PLL/VCO Power Supply Board with Onboard 100MHz Reference Frequency

Product Detail

Demonstration Circuit 2429A is a PLL/VCO Supply and Reference Frequency Board that features the LT3042, an ultralow noise and ultrahigh PSRR RF linear regulator. When powered from a 6V to 20V lab or wall wart supply, the DC2429A produces four ultralow noise supplies using seven LT3042s. These supplies include a fixed 3.3V/800mA supply (four LT3042's in parallel), a fixed 5V/200mA supply, a fixed 3.3V/200mA supply that powers an onboard 100MHz ultralow jitter crystal oscillator, and an adjustable voltage (2.5V to 15V), 200mA supply ideal for powering external VCOs. The DC2429 ensures PLL/VCO evaluation meets data sheet performance.
