Advanced Power Electronics has announced a new series of low drop-out linear regulators that include current and thermal shutdown protection features. APE8800A-HF-3 positive linear regulators have a very low quiescent current of about 30µA, an output voltage accuracy of ±2%, and can supply a guaranteed 300mA of output current with a drop-out voltage of only 250mV.
APE8800A-HF-3 regulators are able to operate with low ESR ceramic output capacitors as small as 1µF for stability. As well as current limit protection, the APE8800A-HF-3 also offers an on-chip thermal shutdown feature providing protection against overload or conditions where the junction temperature may exceed the specified thermal shutdown temperature.
