Linear Low Dropout Regulators (LDO) are a simple solution for regulating a higher voltage to a lower voltage through an integrated circuit without the use of an inductor. LDOs span a wide spectrum of specialized uses and can be widely implemented in today’s electronics because of their simplicity and low cost.
Today, as battery operated devices drive nearly every aspect of everyday life, LDOs prove to be an effective tool in achieving low power consumption and high power efficiency. Many other types of regulators exist on the market but, in many cases, linear dropout regulators prove to be the most cost-effective solution to modern power regulation. The lack of a large and expensive inductor allows LDOs to achieve a much smaller footprint and higher overall value when considered from a cost/benefit perspective. LDOs are a straightforward and cost-effective solution to linear power regulation.
With such a large variety of LDOs available in today’s market it could become difficult to identify the optimal LDO for customer applications. Here are four important characteristics to consider before selecting an LDO:
Power Supply Rejection Ratio (PSRR): In the process of dropping input voltage to output voltage, various unwanted frequencies could find their way into the integrated circuit. The power supply rejection ratio of a linear regulator is the measurement of how well the integrated circuit filters/rejects out extraneous noise in the input voltage signal before voltage is outputted. High PSRR typically correlates to a more consistent output accuracy.
Low Quiescent Current: Also known as IQ, quiescent current is the current that is drawn from an integrated circuited while it is in a quiescent (no-load, non-switching) state. IQ can be understood as the minimal amount of current needed to power the basic functionalities of a device. The lower the rated quiescent current of a linear regulator, the more power efficient the linear regulator is in a no-load state.
