SNVS011H June 1999 – September 2015 LM3480
The LM3480 is an integrated linear voltage regulator with inputs that can be as high as 30 V. It ensures a maximum dropout of 1.2 V at the full load of 100 mA. The LM3480 has different output options including 3.3-V, 5-V, 12-V, and 15-V outputs, making LM3480 the tiny alternative to industry standard LM78Lxx series and similar devices.
The 1.2-V quasi-low dropout of the LM3480 series devices make them a nice fit in many application where the 2-V to 2.5-V dropout of LM78Lxx series devices precludes their use.
The 3.3-V member of LM3480 can operate with an input of 5 V ±5%, its tiny SOT-23 package and quasi-low dropout makes it suitable for providing a very tiny, 3.3-V, 100-mA bias supply from 5-V power supply.
