The LT3030 is a dual, micropower, low noise, low dropout linear regulator. The device operates with either common or independent input supplies for each channel, over a 1.7V to 20V input voltage range. Output 1/Output 2 supply 750mA/250mA respectively with a typical dropout voltage of 300mV. With an external 10nF bypass capacitor, output noise is only 20μVRMS over a 10Hz to 100kHz bandwidth. Designed for use in battery-powered systems, the low 120μA/75μA quiescent current makes it an ideal choice. In shutdown, quiescent current drops to less than 1μA. Shutdown control is independent for each channel and its precision logic threshold allows for voltage lockout functionality. The LT3030 includes a PWRGD flag for each channel to indicate output regulation.
The LT3030 optimizes stability and transient response with low ESR ceramic output capacitors, requiring a minimum of only 10μF/3.3μF.
Internal circuitry provides reverse-battery protection, reverse-current protection, current limiting with foldback and thermal shutdown with hysteresis. The adjustable output voltage device has a 1.220V reference voltage. The LT3030 is offered in the thermally enhanced 20-lead TSSOP and 28-lead, low profile (4mm × 5mm × 0.75mm) QFN packages.

Evaluation Kits (1)
Demonstration circuit 1855A is a dual, micropower, low noise and low dropout voltage linear regulator featuring the LT3030. The input voltages are independent for each channel of DC1855A and can range from 2.2V to 20V. Each channel has a jumper that sets the output voltage to either 1.5V, 1.8V, 2.5V, 3.3V, 5V or a voltage that is user-programmed by the installation of a resistor. For channel 1 and channel 2, the maximum output currents are 750mA and 250mA and the ceramic output capacitors are 22μF and 10μF respectively. The internal reference of each channel is bypassed with a 10nF capacitor for reduced output noise. Each channel has a jumper for shutdown and a terminal for PWRGD that is pulled up to the input supply. A resistor divider can be easily added that allows precise lockout at low input voltages.
