The SPX is a positive voltage regulator with a low dropout voltage and low noise output. When disabled, power consumption drops to nearly zero. Other key features include reverse battery protection, current limit and thermal shutdown. The SPX includes a reference bypass pin for optimal low noise output performance. With its very low output temperature coefficient, this device also makes a superior low power voltage reference.

The SPX is an excellent choice for use in battery powered applications such as cordless telephones, radio control systems and portable computers. It is available in several fixed output voltage options or with an adjustable output voltage. Search our list of FAQs for answers to common technical questions.

This brings you to the product page. For example:. The screen changes to:. A legend tells you the definition of the different statuses.

Type the part into the search, and click on one of the part numbers from the drop down menu. Then you can look for the Product Discontinuation Notice, which generally is at the top of the list, for example:. If you see this, it tells you that this particular orderable part has been discontinued and when the last order date is, or was. If you click on the file, then you can view the notice we sent about this if you purchased the part in the recent past. It may also advise of a replacement part.

When an orderable part first becomes discontinued, Product Discontinuation Notices are sent are sent to those who have purchased the parts in the recent past, if purchased directly, with a dated opportunity to place a last order.

Customer bench testing is strongly recommended using intended application circuit to ensure proper operation. Is there any practical limit to how much capacitance is used on the input or output of the SPX?

Input and output capacitance may be increased without limit. It would appear from the SPX data sheet that increasing the Bypass capacitor above 0. If the bypass pin is to be used, a 10nF ceramic capacitor is suggested. The only concern with the bypass feature is that startup time is increased. If startup time is a concern then the bypass pin should be kept open. Different values of bypass capacitors will result in different startup times.

If so, should a large electrolytic be employed on the output? This is a little difficult to answer without knowing how the LED will be modulated. If the enable input is used for modulation it is possible that the device may not react fast enough to provide an output. This is very true if the Bypass pin is used. If the output load exceeds the current limit trip point, then the output will be turned off to protect the device.

However if the output is always on and modulation is done with some external circuitry, then adding extra capacitance to the output could satisfy the current demand of the LED so as not to cause current limit activation. The best way to determine this is to go to maxlinear. At or near the top of the results you should see something that looks like:. And then Product Change Notifications:. Can ceramic capacitors be used on the output of the SPX?

Ceramic capacitors may be used for this part. A big high voltage electrolytic on the input or a smaller, low voltage ceramic on the output? Or, a combination of both? A small common mode choke would be best for filtering this ripple.

The datasheet does not state that this device is operable in a pre-biased output condition; therefore, leakage may occur. If the 3V battery pack was connected to the input of the SPX, what would the output voltage be with a mA load? If the input voltage is above dropout voltage then the part will regulate for the entire output current range up to mA. Is there a simple way to figure out heat loss for an LDO?
