The TPS736xx-Q1 family of low-dropout (LDO) linear voltage regulators uses a new
topology: an NMOS pass element in a voltage-follower configuration. This topology is stable using
output capacitors with low ESR, and even allows operation without a capacitor. It also provides
high reverse blockage (low reverse current) and ground pin current that is nearly constant over all
values of output current.
The TPS736xx-Q1 uses an advanced BiCMOS process to yield high precision while delivering
very low dropout voltages and low ground pin current. Current consumption, when not enabled, is
under 1 µA and ideal for portable applications. The extremely low output noise (30
µ VRMS with 0.1-µF CNR) is ideal for powering VCOs.
These devices are protected by thermal shutdown and foldback current limit.
