General Specifications
   Regulator Category       
   Your choices are...         
   Linear Regulator       Linear voltage regulators use an active pass element (bipolar or MOSFET) to drop the input voltage down to the regulated output voltage. A linear regulator operates by using a voltage-controlled source to force a fixed voltage to appear at its output terminal. A control circuitry monitors this output voltage and adjusts the current source to hold the output voltage to a desirable value. The control circuitry in general contains a pass device (NPN Darlington pair driven by a PNP transistor, for instance). 
   Switching Regulator       Switching voltage regulators are circuits that use an inductor, a transformer, or a capacitor as an energy-storage element to transfer energy from input to output in discrete packets. Feedback circuitry regulates the energy transfer to maintain a constant voltage within the load limits of the circuit. The basic circuit can be configured to step up (boost), step down (buck), or invert output voltage with respect to input voltage. Switching regulators operate by passing energy in discrete packets over a low-resistance switch, so they can step up, step down, and invert. In addition, they offer higher efficiency than linear regulators. The one disadvantage of the switching regulator is noise. Any time charge is moved in discrete packets, noise or ripples are created. But noise can often be minimized using specific control techniques and through careful component selection.

Performance
   Regulated Output Voltage (Volt)       The output regulated voltage (Volt) represents minimum and maximum amounts in continuous mode (DC). 
   Search Logic:      User may specify either, both, or neither of the "At Least" and "No More Than" values. Products returned as matches will meet all specified criteria.
   Output Current (IOUT)       The output current (IOUT) is measured under specified conditions. 
   Search Logic:      User may specify either, both, or neither of the "At Least" and "No More Than" values. Products returned as matches will meet all specified criteria.
   Dropout Voltage (VD)       The dropout voltage is the minimum voltage drop across the regulator to maintain output voltage regulation. It is important to know that a voltage regulator that operates with smallest voltage across it dissipates the least internal power and has the highest efficiency. The LDO type requires the least voltage across it, while the standard type requires the most. 
   Search Logic:      All matching products will have a value less than or equal to the specified value.
   Quiescent Current (IQ)       Quiescent current (IQ) is measured in amperes (A) during the idling state. Quiescent current is also called operating current or ground current. Quiescent current never makes it to the load, but flows from the battery to power the regulator itself. 
   Search Logic:      All matching products will have a value less than or equal to the specified value.
   Operating Temperature:       This is the ambient temperature range through which the device is designed to operate. 
   Search Logic:      User may specify either, both, or neither of the limits in a "From - To" range; when both are specified, matching products will cover entire range. Products returned as matches will meet all specified criteria.

   IC Package Type       
   Your choices are...         
   DIP / CDIP / PDIP       Dual in-line package (DIP) is a type of DRAM component packaging. DIPs can be installed either in sockets or permanently soldered into holes extending into the surface of the printed circuit board. Ceramic dual in-line package (CDIP) consists of two pieces of dry pressed ceramic surrounding a "DIP formed" lead frame. The ceramic / LF / ceramic system is held together hermetically by frit glass reflowed at temperatures between 400° - 460° centigrade. Plastic dual in-line package (PDIP) is widely used for low cost, hand-insertion applications including consumer products, automotive devices, logic, memory ICs, micro-controllers, logic and power ICs, video controllers commercial electronics and telecommunications. 
   DPAK (TO-252)       Discrete package or deca-watt (DPAK). 
   PPAK (QFN-16)       Power packaging (PPAK). 
   QFP       Quad flat packages (QFP) contain a large number of fine, flexible, gull wing shaped leads. Lead width can be as small as 0.16 mm. Lead pitch is 0.4 mm. QFPs provide good second-level reliability and are used in processors, controllers, ASICs, DSPs, gate arrays, logic, memory ICs, PC chipsets, and other applications.
