Microchip introduced the MCP1804 low dropout voltage regulator which can deliver up to 150 mA of current while consuming only 50 μA of quiescent current (typical, 1.8V ≤ VOUT ≤ 5.0V).
The MCP1804 has a wide input voltage range from 2.0V to 28.0V.
The output voltage tolerance of the MCP1804 is a maximum of ±2% and line regulation is ±0.15% typical at +25°C.
The low dropout input and output is stable with 0.1 μF of input and output capacitance.
The MCP1804 have many build in features like : 150 mA Output Current , Low Drop Out Voltage 260 mV typical @ 20 mA VR = 3.3V , 50 μA Typical Quiescent Current , 0.01 μA Typical Shutdown Current ,Input Operating Voltage Range: 2.0V to 28.0V , Standard Output Voltage Options (1.8V, 2.5V, 3.0V, 3.3V, 5.0V, 10.0V, 12.0V) , Output Voltage Accuracy: ±2% , output voltages from 1.8V to 18.0V in 0.1V increments are available upon request , stable with ceramic output capacitors , Current Limit Protection With Current Foldback , Shutdown pin , High PSRR: 50 dB typical @ 1 kHz .
MCP1804 low dropout voltage regulator can be used in many applications like : Cordless Phones, Wireless Communications , PDAs, Notebook and Netbook Computers ,Digital Cameras , Microcontroller Power , Car Audio and Navigation Systems and other .
