|Novel Current-Sharing, Diode-OR Controller Eases|
Linear Technology Corporation introduces the LTC4370, a first-of-its-kind current-sharing controller with reverse current blocking. The LTC4370 frees the designer from the limitations and complications of existing current-sharing methods to obtain a simpler, quicker, and space-saving solution for sharing between two supplies. Its supply-agnostic feature lends the design more flexibility and a longer lifetime. By incorporating diode behavior, the controller prevents one supply failure from bringing down the entire system.
