Toshiba Electronics Europe has announced the launch of a new series of LDO regulator ICs. The new LDO regulators are available in an ultra-small package and are suited to a variety of mobile devices that require extended battery lives and high-density board assembly, including wearable devices, smartphones, tablet PCs and portable games. The 200mA output TCR2LN/LE/LF series features ultra-low quiescent bias current and low dropout voltage.
Toshiba’s new LDO regulators are available in fixed output voltages between 0.8V and 3.6V and feature over-current protection and an auto-discharge option. Using a fine analogue IC process for advanced CMOS, the TCR2LN/LE/LF series realises ultra-low bias current characteristics by reducing the bias current to 2µA (max) in comparison to the existing TCR2EN series.
The new LDO regulators are available now, in ultra small SDFN4 (0.8 mm x 0.8 mm x 0.38 mm) and general purpose SOT-553 and SOT-25 packages.
