Diodes’ low dropout (LDO) regulators feature a selectable 0.5 A / 1 A output current that is optimized for portable applications
Diodes’ AP7368 series LDO linear regulator offers a high PSRR of 80 dB and is optimized for applications that require low-noise voltage rails while occupying a very small space. For increased versatility, the device has a selectable maximum output current of 0.5 A or 1 A. This allows optimized designs for the required output loads which mitigate thermal or protection issues. The built-in current-foldback varies with the output current selection; 60 mA for low-current mode and 110 mA for high-current mode. This alleviates thermal-shutdown cycling during short-circuit fault conditions and helps protect the IC from damage.
The AP7368 has an active-high enable pin. Bringing this pin low disables the LDO and engages an active output-discharge circuit. This ensures that the system/rail always starts up in a known state. The AP7368 is available in the tiny X-DFN1612-8 (Type B) package, features an exposed thermal pad, and occupies a PCB area of 1.2 mm x 1.6 mm.
