Linear Technology Corporation (Milpitas, CA) announces the LT3061, a high-voltage, low-noise, low dropout voltage linear regulator with active output discharge. The device delivers up to 100mA of continuous output current with a 250mV dropout voltage at full load. The LT3061 includes an internal NMOS pull-down that discharges the output voltage if either the SHDN pin is driven low or the input voltage is turned off. This rapid output discharge helps protect the load in applications requiring power conditioning on both start-up and shutdown, such as in high-end imaging sensors. Other features include:
• Wide 1.6V to 45V input voltage range.
• Adjustable output voltages from 0.6V to 19V.
• Ultralow noise operation of 30µVRMS across a 10Hz to 100kHz bandwidth.
• Low quiescent current of 45µA (operating) and <2µA (in shutdown).
