At 100-mA loading, the dropout of the LP2950-N/LP2951-N has 600 mV maximum dropout over temperature, thus an 1500-mV headroom is sufficient for operation over both input and output voltage accuracy. The efficiency of the LP2950-N/LP2951-N in this configuration is VOUT / VIN = 76.9%. To achieve the smallest form factor, the TO-92 package is selected. Input and output capacitors are selected in accordance with the Capacitor Recommendation section. Ceramic capacitances of 1 µF for the input and one 2.2-µF capacitors for the output are selected. With an efficiency of 73.3% and a 100-mA maximum load, the internal power dissipation is 150 mW, which corresponds to a 18.9°C junction temperature rise for the TO-92 package. With an 85°C maximum ambient temperature, the junction temperature is at 103.9°C. To minimize noise, a bypass capacitance (CBYPASS) of 0.01-µF is selected between pin 7 to pin 1 for LP2951-N.
