New accurate efficient linear voltage regulator from
Advanced Power Electronics Corp
APU1205-3 suits handheld battery-powered equipment
October 2012, San Jose, CA…Advanced Power Electronics Corp. (USA), a leading manufacturer
of MOS power semiconductors for DC-DC power conversion applications, has announced an
efficient linear voltage regulator with better than 2% initial voltage accuracy. The APU1205-3 family
features a very low drop-out voltage and very low ground current and is targeted at handheld
battery powered applications.
Stable with a simple low cost ceramic capacitors,the APU1205-3 has a dropout voltage of only
270mV at 300mA or 170mV at 150mA. Quiescent current at shutdown is 5µA. It also features TTL-
compatible enable/shutdown control input, current limiting and thermal shutdown.The APU1205-3
is available in fixed and adjustable output voltage versions in a small SMT 5 pin SOT-23 package.
This package is halogen-free and compliant with both current RoHS and REACH environmental
requirements for hazardous materials.
Comments Ralph Waggitt, President/CEO, Advanced Power Electronics Corp. (USA): “The
APU1205-3 family especially suits laptops,notebooks and palmtop computers, PCMCIA V
regulators, consumer electronics and high efficiency linear power supplies.”
