Original Press Release
New Accurate Efficient Linear Voltage Regulator from Advanced Power Electronics Corp
Press release date: November 1, 2012
San Jose, CA…Advanced Power Electronics Corp. (USA), a leading manufacturer of MOS power semiconductors for DC-DC power conversion applications, has announced an efficient linear voltage regulator with better than 2% initial voltage accuracy. The APU1205-3 family features a very low drop-out voltage and very low ground current and is targeted at handheld battery powered applications.
Stable with a simple low cost ceramic capacitors, the APU1205-3 has a dropout voltage of only 270mV at 300mA or 170mV at 150mA. Quiescent current at shutdown is 5A. It also features TTL-compatible enable/shutdown control input, current limiting and thermal shutdown. The APU1205-3 is available in fixed and adjustable output voltage versions in a small SMT 5 pin SOT-23 package. This package is halogen-free and compliant with both current RoHS and REACH environmental requirements for hazardous materials.
Comments Ralph Waggitt, President/CEO, Advanced Power Electronics Corp. (USA): “The APU1205-3 family especially suits laptops, notebooks and palmtop computers, PCMCIA VCC and VPP regulators, consumer electronics and high efficiency linear power supplies.”
