Description for the UCC383

The UCC283–3/–5/–ADJ family of positive linear series pass voltage regulators are tailored for low-drop-out applications where low quiescent power is important. Fabricated with a BiCMOS technology ideally suited for low input-to-output differential applications, the UCC283–5 passes 3 A while requiring only 0.45 V of typical input voltage headroom (ensured 0.6-V dropout).

These regulators include reverse voltage sensing that prevents current in the reverse direction. Quiescent current is always less than 650 µA. These devices have been internally compensated in such a way that the need for a minimum output capacitor has been eliminated.

UCC283–3 and UCC283–5 versions are in 3-lead packages and have preset outputs at 3.3 V and 5.0 V respectively. The output voltage is regulated to 1.5% at room temperature. The UCC283–ADJ version, in a 5-lead package, regulates the output voltage programmed by an external resistor ratio.

Short-circuit current is internally limited. The device responds to a sustained overcurrent condition by turning off after a tON time delay. The device then stays off for a period, tOFF, that is 32 times the tON delay. The device then begins pulsing on and off at the tON/(tON +tOFF) duty cycle of 3%. This drastically reduces the power dissipation during short-circuit and means heat sinks need only accommodate normal operation. On the 3-leaded versions of the device tON is fixed at 750 µs, on the adjustable 5-leaded versions an external capacitor sets the on time. The off time is always 32 × tON. The external timing control pin, CT, on the 5-leaded versions also serves as a shutdown input when pulled low.

Internal power dissipation is further controlled with thermal overload protection circuitry. Thermal shutdown occurs if the junction temperature exceeds 165°C. The chip remains off until the temperature has dropped 20°C.

The UCC283 series is specified for operation over the industrial range of –40°C to 85°C, and the UCC383 series is specified from 0°C to 70°C. These devices are available in 3- and 5-pin TO–220 and TO–263 power packages.

Carrier options

You can choose different carrier options based on the quantity of parts, including full reel, custom reel, cut tape, tube or tray.

custom reel is a continuous length of cut tape from one reel to maintain lot- and date-code traceability, built to the exact quantity requested. Following industry standards, a brass shim connects an 18-inch leader and trailer on both sides of the cut tape for direct feeding into automated assembly machines. TI includes a reeling fee for custom reel orders.

Cut tape is a length of tape cut from a reel. TI may fulfill orders using multiple strips of cut tapes or boxes to satisfy the quantity requested.

TI often ships  tube or tray  devices inside a box or in the tube or tray, depending on inventory availability. We pack all tapes, tubes or sample boxes according to internal electrostatic discharge and moisture-sensitivity-level protection requirements.
