— HIGH EFFICIENCY
Designed specifically to meet the requirement for extended opera-
tion of battery-powered equipment such as cordless and cellular tele-
phones, the A8188S— voltage regulators offer the reduced dropout
voltage and quiescent current essential for maximum battery life.
Applicable also to palmtop computers and personal data assistants,

D FO* Output current rating is limited by input
these devices deliver a regulated output at up to 250 mA (transient),
which is limited only by package power dissipation. Regulated output
voltages between 2.5 V and 3.3 V are trimmed at wafer probe.
A PMOS pass element provides a typical dropout voltage of only
90 mV at 60 mA of load current. The low dropout voltage permits
deeper battery discharge before output regulation is lost. Quiescent
current does not increase significantly as the dropout voltage is ap-
proached, an ideal feature in standby/resume power systems where data
integrity is crucial. Regulator accuracy and excellent temperature
characteristics are provided by a bandgap reference. The A8188SL-xx
includes ENABLE inputs to give the designer complete control over
power up, standby, or power down.
These devices are supplied, without the ENABLE function, in a
standard 3-lead SOT-89/TO-243AA small-outline plastic transistor
package (suffix ‘LT’). Dual regulators (A8188SL-xx) are provided in
an 8-lead SOIC package. All devices are rated for operation over a
temperature range of -20°C to +85°C.
