250mA LDO Withstands 80V Input & Operates -55°C to +125°C
For high voltage applications that require large input-to-output differentials, the LT3013 offers a very compact and thermally effective solution. The thermally enhanced TSSOP package provides thermal resistances comparable to much larger conventional packages. The device operates with very small, low cost ceramic output capacitors, and is stable with only a 3.3uF output capacitor, compared to prior regulators of comparable output current and high voltage requiring 10uF to more than 100uF. These tiny external capacitors can be used without any necessary series resistance as is common with many other regulators. Internal protection circuitry includes reverse-battery protection, current limiting, thermal limiting, and reverse-current protection.
LT3013MPFE in the TSSOP package is priced at $6.50 each in 1,000-piece quantities. For more information, visit www.linear.com.
