X-REL Semiconductor, the specialist supplier of high reliability ICs, has introduced a high input voltage, high output current low dropout (LDO) linear regulator for use at extreme temperatures and in extended lifetime designs in oil & gas, industrial, aerospace, defence and automotive markets.
The XTR70020 has an input voltage range of 3V to 32V, and has an output current capability greater than 2A.
X-REL Semiconductor designs and manufactures a wide range of state-of-the-art components for High-reliability and High-temperature applications in extremely demanding markets such as Aeronautics and Space, Transportation and Automotive, Well Drilling, Medical and Pharmaceutical, Industrial and Military.
Targeting applications such as power conversion, control, data acquisition, signal conditioning, timing and interfacing, our products offer enhanced reliability and superior performance over existing solutions. X-REL products are qualified to reliably operate from -60°C (-76°F) to +230°C (+446°F), while remaining functional well outside this temperature range. X-REL products are intrinsically immune to latch-up and use especial technological steps to maximize allowed operating voltages, lifetime and reliability.
X-REL products can be used in applications where the operating environment is at extreme temperatures or whenever some part of the electronics itself makes temperature rise. Using X-REL products allows for reducing or simply removing the needs for cooling hence minimizing size, weight and overall cost.
It also provides several preset standard output voltages in the range 0.6V to 15V.
Other features include over current/short circuit protection, customer selectable thermal shut-down, soft start-up/shut-down and automatic transition to low quiescent current mode depending on dropout voltage.
The voltage regulator can operate from -60°C to well above +230°C, with expected lifetime of about 5 years at +230°C.
