LTC4370: current-sharing controller with reverse current blocking

Posted on Monday, August 27th, 2012 in Chips by DP

Here is an interesting part from Linear Technology, it’s the LTC4370 current-sharing controller, with reverse current blocking. Basically it allows you to tie two power supplies in parallel, without the fear that one will source more current than the other.  It also has built in protection that prevents the current from flowing into the supplies.
