PLANO, Texas — (BUSINESS WIRE) — May 5, 2015 — Diodes Incorporated (Nasdaq: DIOD), a leading global manufacturer and supplier of high-quality application specific standard products within the broad discrete, logic and analog semiconductor markets, today introduced the AP7342. This low dropout regulator (LDO) delivers dual 150mA outputs with high 1% voltage accuracy from a wide 1.7V to 5.25V input voltage range. With a low 35μA quiescent current, low RDS(ON) and tiny 6-pin X2-DFN1212 package, this part is particularly well-suited for compact, low-power, handheld, consumer electronic products such as smart phones, tablets, cameras and portable media players.
Additional benefits of the AP7342 are a high 75dB power supply rejection ratio (PSRR) and low 60μVrms noise sensitivity (from 10Hz to 100kHz). These are key to getting the best performance from audio and video applications or communications devices with RF sub-systems, such as wireless adaptors. A wide input voltage specification ensures compatibility with lithium batteries down to 1.7V, while the output voltage, which can be fixed between 1.2V and 3.6V, is maintained to 1% accuracy at +25oC and 1.5% across the full -40oC to +85oC operating temperature.
The AP7342 is available in high volume, offering an industrial-standard component at a competitive cost but with outstanding light-load, high-efficiency performance. Further information is available at www.diodes.com.
