LTC3351 Hot Swappable Backup Supercapacitor Charger

Power by Linear’s PMIC is designed for charging and monitoring of PCIe cards, high current UPS systems, and servers

Image of Linear Technology's LTC3351 Backup Supercapacitor ChargerLinear Technology/Analog Devices’ LTC3351 is a synchronous step-down controller that charges and monitors up to four supercapacitors at one time. This converter drives N-channel MOSFETs for constant current/constant voltage charging with programmable input current limit. In addition, the device runs in reverse as a step-up converter to deliver power from the supercapacitor stack to the backup supply rail. Internal balancers eliminate the need for external balance resistors and each capacitor has a shunt regulator for overvoltage protection. The LTC3351 monitors system voltages, currents, stack capacitance, and ESR which can all be read over the I2C/SMBus port. The hot swap controller uses N-channel MOSFETs for inrush control and a low loss path from the input to the output. The ideal diode controller uses an N-channel MOSFET for a low loss power path from the supercapacitors to the output. This device comes in a 44-pin QFN package that has an operating temperature of -40°C to +125°C. The LTC3351 is designed for hot swappable applications such as PCIe cards, high current UPS systems, and servers.
