Overview for linear regulators (LDOs)

TI has an LDO that fits your requirements, along with design resources and expertise

Low dropout (LDO) regulators are a simple, inexpensive way to regulate an output voltage that is powered from a higher voltage input. TI's LDO regulators have many different features such as low noise, wide Vin, small size, low Iq and processor attach. With over 500 devices designed for different applications, robust quick-selection capabilities and best-in-class performance, TI has the most complete LDO portfolio in the industry.
