The ADP3336 is a member of the ADP333x family of precision low dropout anyCAP® voltage regulators. The ADP3336 operates with an input voltage range of +2.6 V to +12 V and delivers a continuous load current up to 500 mA. The ADP3336 stands out from the conventional LDOs with the lowest thermal resistance of any MSOP-8 package and an enhanced process that enables it to offer performance advantages beyond its competition. Its patented design requires only a 1.0 µF output capacitor for stability. This device is insensitive to output capacitor Equivalent Series Resistance (ESR), and is stable with any good quality capacitor, including ceramic (MLCC) types for space-restricted applications. The ADP3336 achieves exceptional accuracy of ±0.9% at room temperature and ±1.8% over temperature, line and load variations. The dropout voltage of the ADP3336 is only 200 mV (typical) at 500 mA. This device also includes a safety current limit, thermal overload protection and a shutdown feature. In shutdown mode, the ground current is reduced to less than 1 µA. The ADP3336 has ultralow quiescent current 80 µA (typ) in light load situations.
At least one model within this product family is in production and available for purchase. The product is appropriate for new designs but newer alternatives may exist.
