This high-performance product has much to offer, as we will now explain as we move through this article.

MCP1700T-3302-TT LDO by Microchip technology
MCP 1700 LDO Regulator


At its core, the MCP1700T-3302E/TT Low Quiescent Current LDO is a CMOS low dropout positive voltage regulator of the top industry standard. It is specifically ideal for battery operation, something which powers things that we use all the time, from remote controls and smoke alarms to torches and portable gaming devices. So, the positive voltage regulator acts as a central hub of sorts to the operation of all of these machines and more. They could be handheld and small in size, or they could be large-scale and imperative to a room being usable. And when it comes to products of this nature, we highly recommend the MCP1700T-3302E/TT as your voltage regulator of choice.

MCP1700T-3302E/TT Technical Specifications

The MCP1700T-3302E/TT is a CMOS low dropout positive voltage regulator. When it comes to its maximum capabilities, it can source up to 250mA of current with an extremely low input-output voltage (of 178mV at 250mA). Furthermore, the product’s input operating range is specified from 2.3V to 6.0V. This makes the MCP1700T-3302E/TT an ideal choice for both two and three primary cell battery-powered applications, as well as for single cell Li-Ion-powered applications. In addition, it is AEC-Q100 qualified and PPAP capable, as well as having short circuit protection and overtemperature protection. Lastly, the product is stable with a 1.0 μF Ceramic Output Capacitor.

Other Notes

As these technical points emphasise, the MCP1700T-3302E/TT is commonly used as a voltage regulator. That’s because the item’s low quiescent current and dropout voltage make it ideal for battery powered applications. And the small voltage differential extends the battery operating lifetime. This makes for an even better product, as frequent usage does not reduce battery operating lifetime, and this enables the user to gain full advantage of this particular product.

Why You Need The MCP1700T-3302E/TT Low Quiescent Current LDO

The current delivery that this product offers makes it perfect for anyone requiring two or three primary cell-battery powered operations. As mentioned previously, the low voltage differential extends the battery operating lifetime significantly, meaning that battery powered devices and household objects like smoke detectors, CO2 detectors and objects such as cameras are able to perform to the best of their ability. That ensures high quality and performance across all of these consumer devices. If you are an OEM looking for LDO electronic components, make sure to opt for the MCP1700T-3302E/TT Low Quiescent Current LDO.
