Tiny, High Voltage LDO Has 3uA IQ
The LT3008 regulator optimizes stability and transient response with low ESR, ceramic output capacitors as small as 2.2uF. These tiny external capacitors can be used without the need of series resistance, as is common with many other regulators. Internal protection circuitry includes reverse-battery protection, reverse output and reverse output-to-input protection, current limiting, and thermal limiting.
The LT3008EDC and LT3008IDC are housed in the low profile (0.75mm) 6-lead DFN (2mm x 2mm) package with backside thermal pad, while the LT3008ETS8 and LT3008ITS8 are offered in the 8-lead SOT-23 package with 3 pins fused to the ground paddle for enhanced thermal performance. The I-grade options offer wider guaranteed operating temperature range. 1,000-piece pricing starts at $1.20 each for both packages in the E grade, and $1.40 each for both packages in the I grade.
