The LTC3035 is a micropower, VLDO™ (very low dropout) linear regulator which operates from input voltages as low as 1.7V. The device is capable of supplying 300mA of output current with a typical dropout voltage of only 45mV. To allow operation at low input voltages the LTC3035 includes a charge pump generator that provides the necessary bias voltage for the internal LDO circuitry. Output current comes directly from the input supply for high efficiency regulation. The charge pump bias generator requires only a 0.1μF flying capacitor and a 1μF bypass capacitor for operation. The low 0.4V internal reference voltage allows the LTC3035 to be programmed to much lower output voltages than commonly available in LDOs. The output voltage is programmed via two tiny SMD resistors. The LTC3035’s low quiescent current makes it an ideal choice for use in battery-powered systems.
Other features include high output voltage accuracy, excellent transient response, stability with ultralow ESR ceramic capacitors as small as 1μF, short-circuit and thermal overload protection, output current limiting and reverse output current protection. The LTC3035 is available in a tiny, low profile (3mm × 2mm × 0.75mm) 8-lead DFN package.

Evaluation Kits (1)
Demonstration circuit 886 is an ultralow input voltage and dropout voltage supply using the 300mA output current LTC3035 linear regulator, which comes in a very small 8-pin 3mm × 2mm DFN package. The DC886 has an input voltage range from 1.7V to 5.5V and jumper selectable output voltages of 2.5V/3.3V/5V or a user-determined value. Due to the 0.4V reference of the LTC3035, the DC886 is capable of supplying power to very low voltage applications, such as a (relatively) high current voltage references. The DC886 comes assembled with small 1uF ceramic capacitors to demonstrate the LTC3035's ability to maintain stability with ceramic output capacitors.
