2 © 2006 Linear Technology 2 Agenda Background Past Limitations for LDOs Powering FPGAs/ASICs Advantages of Next Gen Linear Tech LDOs LT3070 Definition Features & Benefits Application Circuits Target Markets Target Applications

3 © 2006 Linear Technology 3 Power Business Unit Products: –Switching Regulators, DC/DC Controllers, Charge- Pumps, Linear Regulators, Battery Chargers, PMICs, LED Drivers, DC Power Switches Markets:  Handheld Battery Powered Products – Cell Phones, Digital Still Cameras, PDAs, MP3 Players, PNDs, etc.  Industrial Control and Instrumentation  Automotive – Navigation and Infotainment  Telecommunications – Infrastructure  Computer – Servers, Workstations and Notebook PC

4 © 2006 Linear Technology 4 Traditional Limitations for in Powering FPGAs/DSPs/ASICs/µPs For high-performance digital ICs such as FPGAs, DSPs, µP’s, µC’s and ASICs, the trend is for higher currents and lower voltages. More efficient, switching regulators have traditionally been used to power these devices but there are noise and layout limitations, so LDOs have come into play. The LDO must have: Operation over a wide input/output voltage range High output current capability Low output noise Low dropout operation Excellent thermal performance Fast response time High PSRR System debugging features a “+” plus X X X X X X X X
