The LT3045 is a high performance low dropout linear regulator featuring LTC’s ultralow noise and ultrahigh PSRR architecture for powering noise sensitive applications. Designed as a precision current reference followed by a high performance voltage buffer, the LT3045 can be easily paralleled to further reduce noise, increase output current and spread heat on the PCB.
The device supplies 500mA at a typical 260mV dropout voltage. Operating quiescent current is nominally 2.2mA and drops to <<1µA in shutdown. The LT3045’s wide output voltage range (0V to 15V) while maintaining unity-gain operation provides virtually constant output noise, PSRR, bandwidth and load regulation, independent of the programmed output voltage. Additionally, the regulator features programmable current limit, fast start-up capability and programmable power good to indicate output voltage regulation.
The LT3045 is stable with a minimum 10µF ceramic output capacitor. Built-in protection includes reverse-battery protection, reverse-current protection, internal current limit with foldback and thermal limit with hysteresis. The LT3045 is available in thermally enhanced 12-Lead MSOP and 10-Lead 3mm × 3mm DFN packages.

Evaluation Kits (2)
Demonstration circuit SCP-LT3045-1-EVALZ is a 20V, 500mA Low Dropout (LDO) regulator designed best in class low noise operation in noise sensitive circuits. It is easily configured for a wide output range and can provide extremely quiet operation with its high PSRR.
Like all boards in the Signal Chain Power series, this board is designed to be easily plugged into other SCP boards to form a complete signal chain power system, enabling fast evaluation of low power signal chains. To evaluate this board, some universal SCP hardware is required, namely:
To properly evaluate SCP series demo boards, you will need the SCP Configurator companion software. SCP Configurator can help you choose the right board and topology for your design.
Note that the Demo Manual does not cover details important to the operation and configuration regarding the LT3045-1. Please refer to the LT3045-1 data sheet for a complete description of the part.
Demo circuit DC2491A features the LT3045EDD, a 500mA, ultralow noise and ultrahigh power supply rejection ratio (PSRR) low dropout (LDO) regulator with programmable current limit. DC2491A operates over an input voltage range of 3.8V to 20V. The LT3045 delivers a maximum output current of 500mA, but at this current level, thermal performance limits the maximum input voltage to 8.3V without a larger copper area or forced-air cooling.
In addition to featuring ultralow noise and ultrahigh PSRR, the regulator offers programmable power good functionality as well as programmable current limit. Current monitoring is also achieved by sensing the ILIM pin voltage.
