The LT3032 is a dual, low noise, positive and negative low dropout voltage linear regulator. Each regulator delivers up to 150mA with a typical 300mV dropout voltage. Each regulator’s quiescent current is low (30μA operating and <3μA in shutdown) and well-controlled in dropout, making it an excellent choice for battery-powered circuits.
Another key feature of the LT3032 is low output noise. Adding an external 10nF bypass capacitor to each regulator reduces output noise to 20μVRMS/30μVRMS over a 10Hz to 100kHz bandwidth. The LT3032 is stable with minimum output capacitors of 2.2μF. The regulators do not require the addition of ESR as is common with other regulators.
The regulators are offered as adjustable output devices with an output voltage down to the ±1.22V reference voltage or in fixed voltages of ±3.3V, ±5V, ±12V and ±15V. Internal protection circuitry includes reverse-output protection, current limiting and thermal limiting.
The LT3032 is available in a unique low profile 14-lead 4mm × 3mm × 0.75mm DFN package with exposed backside pads for each regulator, allowing optimum thermal performance.

Demonstration circuit 1622A is a dual 150mA linear regulator featuring the LT3032. The LT3032 is a dual, positive and negative low dropout linear regulator. Each regulator supplies up to 150mA of output current with a typical 300mV dropout voltage. Each regulator’s quiescent current is low (<3μA total in shutdown) and well-controlled in dropout, making it an excellent choice for battery-powered circuits. A 0.01μF bypass capacitor to each regulator reduces output voltage noise to 20μVRMS (positive regulator)/30μVRMS (negative regulator) over a 10Hz to 100kHz bandwidth. The LT3032 is stable with minimum output capacitor of 2.2μF. The regulators do not require any additional ESR. Internal protection circuitry includes reverse output protection, current limiting and thermal limiting. Each regulator is offered as an adjustable output device with an output voltage range down to the ±1.22V reference voltages.
