Product Overview

The LT3420EMS#PBF is a Photoflash Capacitor Charger with automatic refresh charges high voltage photoflash capacitors quickly and efficiently. Designed for use in both digital and film cameras, it uses a flyback topology to achieve efficiencies up to four times better than competing flash modules. An unique adaptive off-time control algorithm maintains current-limited continuous mode transformer operation throughout the entire charge cycle, eliminating the high inrush current often found in modules. This feature allows the capacitor to be held at a fully charged state without excessive power consumption. Automatic refresh allows the capacitor to remain charged while consuming an average input current of about 2mA, at an user-defined refresh rate. Logic high on the CHARGE pin initiates charging, while the DONE pin signals that the capacitor is fully charged.
