The TPS779xx is offered in 1.8-V, 2.5-V, and 3-V fixed-voltage versions and in an adjustable version (programmable over the range of 1.5 V to 5.5 V). Output voltage tolerance is 2% over line, load, and temperature ranges. The TPS779xx family is available in 8-pin MSOP (DGK) packages. Because the PMOS device behaves as a low-value resistor, the dropout voltage is very low (typically 200 mV at an output current of 250 mA for 3.3 volt option) and is directly proportional to the output current. Additionally, since the PMOS pass element is a voltage-driven device, the quiescent current is very low and independent of output loading (typically 92 A over the full range of output current, 0 mA to 250 mA). These two key specifications yield a significant improvement in operating life for battery-powered systems. The device is enabled when the EN pin is connected to a high-level input voltage. This LDO family also features a sleep mode; applying a TTL low signal to EN (enable) shuts down the regulator, reducing the quiescent current to less than 1 A at TJ = 25C.
