LDO regulator ICs target wearable & mobile devices
Featuring ultra-low quiescent bias current and low dropout voltage, Toshiba Electronics Europe has announced a series of LDO regulator ICs with a 200mA output. The TCR2LN/LE/LF series regulators are available in an ultra-small package suited to a variety of mobile devices that require extended battery lives and high-density board assembly, including wearable devices, smartphones, tablet PCs and portable games.
Toshiba's LDO regulators are available in fixed output voltages between 0.8 and 3.6V and feature over-current protection and an auto-discharge option. Using a fine analogue IC process for advanced CMOS, the TCR2LN/LE/LF series realises ultra-low bias current characteristics by reducing the bias current to a maximum of 2µA in comparison to the existing TCR2EN series.
The regulators are available now, in 0.8x0.8x0.38mm SDFN4 and general purpose SOT-553 and SOT-25 packages.
