Content for LT1763


The LT1763 series are micropower, low noise, low dropout regulators. The devices are capable of supplying 500mA of output current with a dropout voltage of 300mV. Designed for use in battery-powered systems, the low 30μA quiescent current makes them an ideal choice. Quiescent current is well controlled; it does not rise in dropout as it does with many other regulators. A key feature of the LT1763 regulators is low output noise. With the addition of an external 0.01μF bypass capacitor, output noise drops to 20μVRMS over a 10Hz to 100kHz bandwidth. The LT1763 regulators are stable with output capacitors as low as 3.3μF. Small ceramic capacitors can be used without the series resistance required by other regulators.
