ON Semiconductor NCV8730 CMOS LDO Regulators

With available Power Good circuit

The ON Semiconductor NCV8730 CMOS LDO Regulator family is based on a unique combination of features: very low quiescent current, fast transient response and high input and output voltage ranges.

Designed for up to 38 V input voltage and 150 mA output current with a quiescent current of only 1 µA, the NCV8730 LDO regulator is ideal for battery−powered, always−on systems.

Several fixed output voltage versions are available as well as the adjustable version. The device (version B) implements power good circuit (PG) which indicates that output voltage is in regulation. This signal could be used for power sequencing or as a Microcontroller reset. Internal short circuit and over temperature protections saves the device against overload conditions.
