The ADP165/ADP166 are very low quiescent current, low dropout, linear regulator that operate from 2.2 V to 5.5 V and provides up to 150 mA of output current. The low 120 mV dropout voltage at 150 mA load improves efficiency and allows operation over a wide input voltage range.
The ADP165/ADP166 are specifically designed for stable operation with a tiny 1 µF ± 30% ceramic input and output capacitors to meet the requirements of high performance, space-constrained applications.
The ADP165/ADP166 are available in seven fixed output voltage options, ranging from 1.2 V to 3.3 V, and an adjustable output option. The ADP165 also include a switched resistor to discharge the output automatically when the LDO is disabled. The ADP166 is identical to the ADP165, but does not include the output discharge function.
Short-circuit and thermal overload protection circuits prevent damage in adverse conditions. The ADP165/ADP166 are available in a tiny 5-lead TSOT, a 6-lead LFCSP and a 4-ball, 0.5 mm pitch WLCSP package for the smallest footprint solution to meet a variety of portable power applications.

Product Lifecycle Production
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.
Evaluation Kits (1)
The ADP165/ADP166 evaluation boards are used to demonstrate the functionality of the ADP165/ADP166 series of linear regulators.
Simple device measurements such as line and load regulation, dropout voltage, and ground current can be demonstrated with only a single voltage supply, a voltmeter, an ammeter, and load resistors.
Complete specifications for the ADP165/ADP166 linear regulators are available in the ADP165/ADP166 data sheet available from Analog Devices, Inc., and should be consulted in conjunction with this user guide when using the evaluation boards.
