The MIC29310 and MIC29312 are low cost versions of MIC29300 family low-dropout (LDO) regulators. Manufactured on proprietary Super βeta PNP® process, the MIC29310/2 is a 3A LDO regulator with very low-dropout voltage (600mV over the full load) and low ground current. Along with a total accuracy of ±2% (over temperature, line and load regulation), these regulators feature very fast transient recovery from input voltage surges and output load current changes.
The MIC29310 is available in fixed 3.3V and 5V outputs voltages; the MIC29312 has an adjustable output which can be set by two external resistors to a voltage between 1.24V to 15V. In addition, all versions are fully protected against overcurrent faults, reversed input polarity, reversed lead insertion, and over-temperature operation.
A TTL logic-enable (EN) pin is available in the MIC29312 to shutdown the regulator. When not used, the device can be set to continuous operation by connecting EN to the input (IN). The MIC29310/2 is available in the standard 3- and 5-pin TO-220 and TO-263 packages with an operating junction temperature range of 0°C to +125°C.
For applications requiring even lower dropout voltage, input voltage greater than 16V, or an error flag, see the MIC29300/29301/29302/29303.
