The MIC5201YM is an efficient linear voltage regulator with very low dropout voltage (typically 17 mV at light loads and 200 mV at 100 mA), and very low ground current (1 mA at 100 mA output), offering better than 1% initial accuracy with a logic compatible on-off switching input.

The MIC5201 is designed especially for hand-held battery powered devices, it can be switched by a CMOS or TTL compatible enable signal. This enable control may be connected directly to VIN if unneeded. When disabled, power consumption drops nearly to zero. The ground current of the MIC5201 increases only slightly in dropout, further prolonging battery life. Key MIC5201 features include current limiting, overtemperature shutdown, and protection against reversed battery. The MIC5201 is available in several fixed voltages and accuracy configurations. It features the same pinout as the LT1121 with better performance. Other options are available; contact Micrel for details.
