TOKYO -- December 20, 2012

Toshiba Corporation (TOKYO:6502) today announced that it will launch 300mA
output single LDO regulators that use a newly developed micro CMOS process to
significantly improve drop-out characteristics. With an ultra-small 1.0mm x
1.0mm x 0.6mm DFN4 package, the new TCR3DM series achieves 140mV (typ.) at
3.0V and 300mA. The new regulators also include a high-speed load transient
response circuit and low-noise circuit. In addition to basic functions, that
include over-current protection, over-temperature protection and output
auto-discharge, these 300mA output LDO regulators limit inrush current and are
recommended for a wide range of applications, particularly mobile devices.

Samples are available now with mass production scheduled to start from March

Smartphones, mobile phones, tablets, laptop PCs, digital cameras, digital
video cameras and other small mobile devices

Key Features
1. Low drop-out voltage
V[IN]-V[OUT ]= 140mV (typ.) at 3.0V output, I[OUT] = 300mA
2. Low output noise voltage
V[NO] = 38μVrms (typ.) at 2.5V output, I[OUT] = 10mA, 10 Hz < f < 100kHz
3. The voltage-clamp type output voltage can be set between1.0V and 4.5V in
increments of 50mV.
4. Low bias current (I[B]=65μA (typ.) at I[OUT]=0mA)
5. Excellent load transient response characteristics
ΔV[OUT] = ±80mV (typ.) at I[OUT] = 1 ⇔ 300mA, C[OUT] =1.0μF
6. Over-current protection
7. Over-temperature protection
8. Inrush current limit
9. Output auto-discharge
10. Pull-down control terminal connection
