The LT3082 is a 200mA low dropout linear regulator that can be paralleled to increase output current or spread heat in surface mounted boards. Architected as a precision current source and voltage follower, this regulator benefits many applications requiring high current, adjustability to zero and no heat sink. The LT3082 withstands reverse input voltages and reverse output-to-input voltages without reverse-current flow.
A key feature of the LT3082 is the capability to supply a wide output voltage range. A precision “0” TC 10μA reference current source drives a single resistor to program the output voltage to any level between zero and 38.5V. The LT3082 is stable with only 2.2μF of capacitance on the output; the IC uses small ceramic capacitors that do not require additional ESR as is common with other regulators.
Internal protection circuitry includes reverse-battery and reverse-current protection, current limiting and thermal limiting. The LT3082 is offered in the thermally enhanced 8-lead TSOT-23, 3-lead SOT-223 and 8-lead 3mm × 3mm DFN packages.

Evaluation Kits (1)
Demonstration circuit 1447A is an adjustable 200mA linear regulator featuring LT3082. Architected as a precision current source and voltage follower, it allows this new regulator to be used in many applications with adjustability to zero output. The LT3082 has an input range of 1.2V to 40V, but the demo board limits this range to 2.8V to 35V. The LT3082 withstands reverse input voltages and reverse output-to-input voltages without reverse-current flow.
