ON SEMICONDUCTOR TARGETS WIRELESS MARKET WITH LOW NOISE LOW DROPOUT VOLTAGE REGULATOR IN A SMALL SOT23 PACKAGE Monday 29 January 2001 PDF Print ...Device offers low noise performance without external bypass capacitor... ON Semiconductor (Nasdaq: ONNN), a leading provider of power management and broadband integrated circuits that enable mobile communication and power the internet, today announced the availability of a CMOS Low Noise Low Dropout (LDO) voltage regulator designed to improve the performance of noise sensitive circuits in portable products. With its low dropout voltage and small package size, the NCP500 LDO regulator provides cost and space savings, and achieves its low noise performance without the need of an external bypass capacitor. "Performance and size are critical factors in the design of handheld battery operated products," said Mitch Polonsky, analogue marketing engineer at ON Semiconductor. "The NCP500 is the latest in ON Semiconductor's line of CMOS LDO regulators to present designers with an efficient and cost-effective way to maximise battery life in consumer portable products. In addition, the introduction of this product demonstrates the company's commitment to address the rapidly growing consumer demand for higher performance portable electronics." Operating within a voltage range of 1.8 volts to six volts, the NCP500 offers very low dropout voltage and other performance features such as an enable pin and current and temperature limit protection circuits. Because the device is available in a five lead SOT-23 miniature footprint, it has been optimised for use in cellular handsets, handheld instruments, MP3 players and other portable consumer products. It is designed to work with small, low cost ceramic capacitors and requires a minimum output capacitor of one micro farad. The NCP500 is offered with five different output voltages: 1.8 V, 2.5 V, 2.8 V, 3.0 V and 3.3 V. All of the versions are available in a 5 lead SOT-23 package. Suggested resale pricing for each orderable NCP500 device is $0.25 per 12K units.
