Status: In Production
The MIC5205 is an efficient linear voltage regulator with ultra-low noise output, very low dropout voltage (typically 17mV at light loads and 165mV at 150mA), and very low ground current (600µA at 100mA output). The MIC5205 offers better than 1% initial accuracy.
Designed especially for handheld, battery-powered devices, the MIC5205 includes a CMOS- or TTL-compatible enable/shutdown control input. When shut down, power consumption drops nearly to zero. Regulator ground current increases only slightly in dropout, further prolonging battery life.
Key MIC5205 features include a reference bypass pin to improve its already excellent low-noise performance, reversed-battery protection, current limiting, and over-temperature shutdown.
The MIC5205 is available in fixed and adjustable output voltage versions in a small SOT-23-5 package.
For low-dropout regulators that are stable with ceramic output capacitors, see the µCap MIC5255/MIC5256/MIC5247.
