Features and Benefits
- UltraFast™ Transient Response Eliminates Tantalum and Electrolytic Output Capacitors
- FET RDS(ON) Defines Dropout Voltage
- 1% Reference/Output Voltage Tolerance Over Temperature
- Typical Load Regulation: 1mV
- High Side Sense Current Limit
- Multifunction Shutdown Pin with Latch off
The LT1575/LT1577 are single/dual controller ICs that drive low cost external N-channel MOSFETs as source followers to produce ultrafast transient response, low dropout voltage regulators.
The LT1575/LT1577 achieve unprecedented transient-load performance by eliminating expensive tantalum or bulk electrolytic output capacitors in the most demanding modern microprocessor applications. Precision-trimmed adjustable and fixed output voltage versions accommodate any required microprocessor power supply voltage. Selection of the N-channel MOSFET RDS(ON) allows very low dropout voltages to be achieved.
Unique protection features include a high side current limit amplifier that activates a fault protection timer circuit. A multifunction Shutdown pin provides either current limit time-out with latch off, over-voltage protection, thermal shutdown or a combination of these functions. The LT1575 is available in 8-pin SO or PDIP and the LT1577 is available in 16-pin narrow body SO.
