The LT1963 series are low dropout regulators optimized for fast transient response. The devices are capable of supplying 1.5A of output current with a dropout voltage of 340mV. Operating quiescent current is 1mA, dropping to <1μA in shutdown. Quiescent current is well controlled; it does not rise in dropout as it does with many other regulators. In addition to fast transient response, the LT1963 regulators have very low output noise which makes them ideal for sensitive RF supply applications.
Output voltage range is from 1.21V to 20V. The LT1963 regulators are stable with output capacitors as low as 10µF. Internal protection circuitry includes reverse battery protection, current limiting, thermal limiting and reverse current protection. The devices are available in fixed output voltages of 1.5V, 1.8V, 2.5V, 3.3V and as an adjustable device with a 1.21V reference voltage. The LT1963 regulators are available in 5-lead TO-220, DD, 3-lead SOT-223, 8-lead SO, and Exposed Pad 16-lead TSSOP packages.

Evaluation Kits (1)
Demonstration circuit DC367A is a low noise micropower voltage regulator using the 1.5A LT1963 in the 8-lead SO package. These circuits are used primarily in voltage controlled oscillators, RF power supplies and, in larger systems, as local regulators. The DC367 has an input voltage range of 2.5V to 20V and provides a jumper-selectable 1.2V/1.5V/1.8V/2.5V/3.3V output at 1.5A.
