Feature-rich low dropout regulator

18 May 2005 Power Electronics / Power Management

Microchip's MCP1726 low dropout regulator is a unique device that features a low minimum output voltage (down to 0,8 V) and a high output current (up to 1 A), intended for a variety of high performance applications such as high-performance CPUs and logic cores. The LDO is stable with a 1 μF ceramic output capacitor, reducing cost and board space. It also features a power good output with programmable delay option that allows engineers to program a system delay, providing additional flexibility for the design. Other features include: a typical 140 μA active supply current for optimum energy efficiency; a 150 mV typical dropout voltage for highest flexibility and fault tolerance; and various shutdown and/or reset options. It comes in an 8-pin DFN and SOIC package.
