The LT3093 supplies 200mA at a typical 190mV dropout voltage. Operating quiescent current is nominally 2.35mA and drops to 3µA in shutdown. The device’s wide output voltage range (0V to –19.5V) error amplifier operates in unity-gain. This feature provides virtually constant output noise, PSRR, bandwidth, and load regulation independent of the programmed output voltage. Additional features are bipolar enable pin, programmable current limit, fast startup capability and programmable power good to indicate output voltage regulation. The regulator incorporates a tracking function to control an upstream supply to maintain a constant voltage across the LT3093 to minimize power dissipation and optimize PSRR.
