The LP2985-N is a fixed-output, wide-input, low-noise, low-dropout voltage regulator supporting an input voltage range from 2.5 V to 16 V and up to 150 mA of load current. The LP2985-N supports an output range of 1.2 V to 5.0 V (new chip) and 2.5 V to 6.1 V (legacy chip).

Additionally, the LP2985-N (new chip) has a 1% output accuracy across load and temperature that can meet the needs of low-voltage microcontrollers (MCUs) and processors.

Low output noise of 30 µV RMS (with 10-nF bypass capacitors) and wide bandwidth PSRR performance of greater than 70 dB at 1 kHz and 40 dB at 1 MHz help attenuate the switching frequency of an upstream DC/DC converter and minimize post regulator filtering.

The internal soft-start time and current-limit protection reduce inrush current during start up, thus minimizing input capacitance. Standard protection features, such as overcurrent and overtemperature protection, are included.

The LP2985-N is available in a 5-pin, 2.9-mm × 1.6-mm SOT-23 (DBV) package.
