Is there a recommended layout for LTC3556 device?
If not, is it possible to get the gerber files for the DC1296?
Hi Yes we keep the design files which include the layout, Gerber files, BOM up on the web. The link is on the DC1296A web page on our web site. The link should be included in this message. Hopefully it will work. If not you now know where to find it.
Hi Marty, Thank you. We are considering this component for a client's project, but would like to run a simulate with it in LTSpice. Do you know if there is an example circuit (the DC1296 would be great) that we could modify to see how the unit fits together and operates?
Hello, Unforturnetly it looks like we do not have a simulation model for the LTC3556 in LTSpice. I also do not have a simulation for this part or for the demo board.
Thanks for your fast response. This is unfortunate news. Is this device new? Can you offer some insight as to why it is not well supported? Does the device suffer from some issue and thus should not be be used for new designs?
Since the device has these problems, what could you recommend as an alternative? We were planning to replace separated components from another manufacturer with this as an improvement in solution integration, but would like to avoid recommending something that is not well supported or will cause them some problem in the future- particularly if we have no way to simulate the circuit containing it.
Thanks again for your help.
MartyM any news on this? Do you know why the part isn't better supported? Is there anything close we can use to sim?
