1. L7805 Positive voltage regulators — ST Electronics|
The L78xx series of three-terminal positive regulators is available in TO-220, TO-220FP, TO-3, D2PAK and DPAK packages and several fixed output voltages, making it useful in a wide range of applications. These regulators can provide local on-card regulation, eliminating the distribution problems associated with single point regulation. Each type employs internal current limiting, thermal shut-down and safe area protection, making it essentially indestructible. If adequate heat sinking is provided, they can deliver over 1 A output current. Although designed primarily as fixed voltage regulators, these devices can be used with external components to obtain adjustable voltage and currents. 58 pages.
2. LP2985 — National Semiconductor|
The LP2985 is a 150 mA, fixed-output voltage regulator designed to provide ultra low-dropout and low noise in battery powered applications. Using an optimized VIP (Vertically Integrated PNP) process, the LP2985 delivers unequalled performance in all specifications critical to battery-powered designs. 19 pages.
3. LP2985 — Texas Instruments|
The LP2985 family of fixed-output, low-dropout regulators offers exceptional, cost-effective performance for both portable and nonportable applications. Available in voltages of 2.5 V, 2.6 V, 2.7 V, 2.8 V, 2.85 V, 3 V, 3.1 V, 3.2 V, 3.3 V, and 5 V, the family has an output tolerance of 1% for the A version (1.5% for the non-A version) and is capable of delivering 150mA continuous load current. Standard regulator features, such as over-current and over-temperature protection, are included. 24 pages.
4. MC7800, MC7800A, NCV7805 1.0 A Positive Voltage Regulators — ON Semiconductor|
These voltage regulators are monolithic integrated circuits designed as fixed-voltage regulators for a wide variety of applications including local, on-card regulation. These regulators employ internal current limiting, thermal shutdown, and safe-area compensation. With adequate heatsinking they can deliver output currents in excess of 1.0 A. Although designed primarily as a fixed voltage regulator, these devices can be used with external components to obtain adjustable voltages and currents. 29 pages.
5. Micrel MIC2940A/2941A 1.2A Low-Dropout Voltage Regulator|
The MIC2940A and MIC2941A are "bulletproof" efficient voltage regulators with very low dropout voltage (typically 40mV at light loads and 350mV at 1A), and low quiescent current (240µA typical). The quiescent current of the MIC2940A increases only slightly in dropout, thus prolonging battery life. Key MIC2940A features include protection against reversed battery, fold-back current limiting, and automotive "load dump" protection (60V positive transient). 11 pages.
6. ST L4931 Very low-drop voltage regulator with inhibit|
The L4931 is a very low-drop regulator available in SO-8, DPAK, PPAK and TO-92 packages and in a wide range of output voltages. The very low-drop voltage (0.4 V) and the very low quiescent current make it particularly suitable for low noise, low power applications and especially in battery-powered systems. 38 pages.
