MCP1755 Low Dropout Regulator (LDO)

The MCP1755/S is a 16 V, high PSRR Low Dropout (LDO) voltage regulator with short-circuit current fold-back. This regulator provides up to 300 mA of output current and accepts a continuous input voltage from 3.6 V to 16 V, making it ideal for automotive and commercial 12 V DC systems. Delivering 80 dB of ripple rejection at 1 kHz, this device is for AC-sensitive applications such as GFCI and AFCI circuit breakers. The current fold-back feature gradually reduces the device current down to 30 mA under short-circuit conditions to protect against damage. When the short is removed, the device will recover and continue operating.

Dropout voltage is defined as the input-to-output voltage differential at which the output voltage drops 2% below the nominal value that was measured with a VR + 1.0 V differential applied, where VR is the nominal output voltage

MCP1755 Applications

Voltage Regulator

MCP1755/S is most commonly used as a voltage regulator for battery-powered applications. In this application example, the input voltage (VIN) ranges from 3.6 V to 4.8 V (Maximum VIN). Typical output voltage (VOUT) is 1.8 V and it can supply maximum 50 mA.


MCP1755S LDO is available as a fixed voltage device.

Current Voltage Reference

The MCP1755/S can be used as a low quiescent current voltage reference. For example, in PIC® Microcontroller applications, the initial accuracy of the reference can be calibrated using production test equipment or by using a ratio measurement. In the application example, a bridge sensor is used for calibration. When the initial accuracy is calibrated, the thermal stability and line regulation tolerance are the only errors introduced by the MCP1755/S. The low-cost, low quiescent current and small ceramic output capacitor are all advantages when using the MCP1755/S as a voltage reference.
