The TL1963A-Q1 device is a low-dropout (LDO) regulator optimized for fast transient
response. The device can supply 1.5 A of output current with a dropout voltage of 340 mV. Operating
quiescent current is 1 mA, dropping to less than 1 µA in shutdown. Quiescent current is well
controlled; it does not rise in dropout as it does with many other regulators. In addition to fast
transient response, the TL1963A-Q1 regulators have very low output noise, which makes them ideal
for sensitive RF supply applications.
Output voltage range is from 1.21 V to 20 V. The TL1963A-Q1 regulators are stable with
output capacitors as low as 10 µF. Small ceramic capacitors can be used without the necessary
addition of ESR, as is common with other regulators. Internal protection circuitry includes
reverse-battery protection, current limiting, thermal limiting, and reverse-current protection. The
devices are available in fixed output voltages of 1.5 V, 1.8 V, 2.5 V, and 3.3 V, and as an
adjustable device with a 1.21-V reference voltage. The TL1963A-Q1 regulators are available in the
5-pin TO-263 (KTT) package.
