Texas Instruments  LP5951MF-1.8EV

The LP5951 regulator is designed to meet the requirements of portable, battery-powered systems providing a regulated output voltage and low quiescent current. When switched to shutdown mode via a logic signal at the Enable pin, the power consumption is reduced to virtually zero.

The LP5951 is designed to be stable with small 1 microF/1.5microF ceramic capacitors.

The LP5951 also features internal protection against short-circuit currents and over-temperature conditions.

Performance is specified for a -40°C to 125°temperature range. The device is available in SOT23-5 and SC70-5 package.

The LP5951 evaluation board is designed to enable independent evaluation of the LP5951 electrical performance. Each board is pre-assembled and tested in the factory. The evaluation kits are available in two options: LP5951MF-1.8EV and LP5951MF-2.5EV. For other voltage and package options, the device can be ordered from the LP5951 product folder on TI's website. The board offers two different assembly options: SC70-5 package (MG) on top side (TOP) or SOT23-5 package on bottom side (BOT) of the board. Only one side will be assembled at a time.
