Low Dropout Regulator with Delayed Reset
General Description
The LM2926 is a 5V, 500 mA, low dropout regulator with de-
layed reset. The microprocessor reset flag is set low by ther-
mal shutdown, short circuits, overvoltage conditions, drop-
out, and power-up. After the fault condition is corrected, the
reset flag remains low for a delay time determined by the de-
lay capacitor. Hysteresis is included in the reset circuit to
prevent oscillations, and a reset output is guaranteed down
to 3.2V supply input. A latching comparator is used to dis-
charge the delay capacitor, which guarantees a full reset
pulse even when triggered by a relatively short fault condi-
tion. A patented quiescent current reduction circuit drops the
ground pin current to 8 mA at full load when the input-output
differential is 3V or more.
Familiar PNP regulator features such as reverse battery pro-
tection, transient protection, and overvoltage shutdown are
included in the LM2926 making it suitable for use in automo-
tive and battery operated equipment.
The LM2927 is electrically identical to the LM2926 but has a
different pin-out. The LM2927 is pin-for-pin compatible with
the L4947 and TLE4260 alternatives. The LM2926 is
pin-for-pin compatible with the LM2925.
