Linear Technology Corporation Unveils LT3952, Current Mode Step-Up DC/DC Converter

Linear Technology Corporation unveiled the LT3952, a current mode step-up DC/DC converter with an internal 60V, 4A DMOS power switch. It is specifically designed to drive high power LEDs in multiple configurations. It combines input and output current regulation loops with output voltage regulation to operate as a flexible current/voltage source. The LT3952's 3V to 42V input voltage range makes it ideal for a wide variety of applications, including automotive, industrial and architectural lighting. The LT3952 can drive up to sixteen 350mA white LEDs from a nominal 12V input, delivering in excess of 15 watts. It incorporates a high side current sense, enabling its use in boost mode, buck mode, buck-boost mode or SEPIC topologies. Internal spread spectrum frequency modulation minimizes EMI concerns. The LT3952 delivers efficiencies of over 94% in the boost topology, eliminating the need for external heat sinking, and internal LED short-circuit protection enables added reliability required in most applications. A frequency adjust pin permits the user to program the switching frequency between 200kHz and 3MHz, optimizing efficiency while minimizing external component size and cost. The LT3952 delivers over 90% efficiency while switching at 2MHz in a tiny solution footprint. The LT3952 provides a very compact high power LED driver solution in a thermally enhanced TSSOP-28E package. The LT3952 has a gate driver for a PMOS LED disconnect switch, delivering dimming ratios of up to 4,000:1 using an external PWM signal. For less demanding dimming requirements, the CTRL pin can be used to offer a 10:1 analog dimming range and an internal PWM generator can be used for 5:1 dimming. The LT3952's fixed frequency, current-mode architecture offers stable operation over a wide range of supply and output voltages. Output short-circuit protection and open LED protection enhance system reliability. Other features include frequency synchronization, spread spectrum frequency modulation, programmable VIN undervoltage and overvoltage protection, and an input current limit and monitor. The LT3952EFE is available in a thermally enhanced 28-lead TSSOP package. Three temperature grades are available, with operation from -40°C to 125°C (junction) for the extended, and industrial grades, and a high temperature grade of -40°C to 150°C. Pricing starts at $3.95 each in 1,000-piece quantities and all versions are available from stock.

Linear Technology Corporation Reports Unaudited Consolidated Earnings Results for the Third Quarter and Nine Months Ended March 29, 2015; Provides Tax Rate Guidance for the Fourth Quarter of fiscal 2015 and Financial Guidance for the Fiscal 2015

Linear Technology Corporation reported unaudited consolidated earnings results for the third quarter and nine months ended March 29, 2015. For the quarter, the company reported revenues of $372,021,000 compared to $348,006,000 for the same period a year ago. Operating income was $173,553,000 compared to $160,705,000 last year. Income before income taxes was $174,434,000 compared to $148,870,000 last year. Net income was $135,187,000 or $0.55 per diluted share compared to $117,607,000 or $0.48 per diluted share last year. Cash provided by operating activities was $153,221,000 compared to $101,743,000 last year. Purchase of property, plant and equipment was $11,046,000 compared to $8,739,000 last year. Earnings per share this quarter would be $0.61 without the impact of stock option accounting. The resulting net income of $135.7 million improved by 9.4% from the $123.6 million reported in the previous quarter, largely due to the increase in sales. Return on assets was 30.7%, up from last quarter's 28.9% primarily impacted by the profitability resulting from the increase in sales. For the nine months, the company reported revenues of $1,095,656,000 compared to $1,022,958,000 for the same period a year ago. Operating income was $506,128,000 compared to $468,085,000 last year. Income before income taxes was $507,843,000 compared to $433,327,000 last year. Net income was $388,248,000 or $1.58 per diluted share compared to $330,226,000 or $1.37 per diluted share last year. Cash provided by operating activities was $437,554,000 compared to $392,685,000 last year. Purchase of property, plant and equipment was $54,164,000 compared to $16,636,000 last year. The company expect next quarter's tax rate to be in the 25.5% range, which the company estimate to be ongoing effective tax rate. The company currently expect additions of property, plant and equipment to be roughly $70 million and depreciation roughly $50 million for fiscal 2015.
