MAX16948

Automotive Dual Remote Antenna Current-Sense LDO/Switch

Dual Antenna Phantom Supply Provides Diagnostics for Multiband Antenna Systems


Please check latest availability status for a specific part variant.

Description

The MAX16948 is a dual high-voltage, current-sensing low dropout linear regulator (LDO)/switch designed to operate with an input voltage range from 4.5V to 28V (45V load dump tolerant). The device provides phantom power over coax cable to remote radio frequency low-noise amplifiers (LNAs) in automotive systems with a maximum current of 300mA per channel. The device also provides a fixed regulated output voltage of 8.5V or an adjustable 1V to 12.5V output voltage. The device can also be configured as a switch.

The device monitors the load current and provides an analog output current proportional to the sensed load current. Accurate internal current limits protect the input supply against both overcurrent and short-circuit conditions. The device features an open-drain error output for each channel to indicate to the microcontroller (µC) when a fault has occurred.

The device features short-to-battery protection to latch off the internal LDO/switch during a short-to-battery event. During a thermal overload, the device reduces power dissipation by going into thermal shutdown. It includes two independent active-low, high-voltage-compatible shutdown inputs to place each channel in a low-power shutdown mode.

The device is available in a 16-pin TQFN package with exposed pad, a 16-pin QSOP package with exposed pad, or a 16-pin QSOP package and is fully specified over the -40°C to +105°C temperature range.
