DALLAS, May 14, 2013

DALLAS, May 14, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --Texas Instruments Incorporated (TI)
(NASDAQ: TXN) today introduced two high-current, low-dropout (LDO) linear
voltage regulators with excellent noise and power supply rejection ratio
(PSRR) performance in very small, easy-to-use packages. The 250-mA LP5907 and
800-mA LP38798 LDOs feature less than 10-µVrms output noise over the 10-Hz to
100-kHz bandwidth, eliminating the need for expensive and bulky filtering in a
wide range of high-performance applications. For more information, samples and
evaluation modules, visit www.ti.com/lp5907-pr and www.ti.com/lp38798-pr.

250-mA LP5907 LDO

Designed to meet the requirements of RF and analog circuits in applications
such as mobile handsets, tablets and WiFi devices, the LP5907 linear regulator
provides ultra-low noise, high PSRR, low quiescent current and low line or
load transient response figures. Using innovative design techniques, the
LP5907 offers industry-leading noise performance without a bypass capacitor,
and includes the ability for remote output capacitor placement. The device is
designed to work with 1-µF input and output ceramic capacitors, and when used
in conjunction with the award-winning WEBENCH® online design tool, the LP5907
speeds and simplifies the design process. Watch a video at

LP5907 key features and benefits

  oOutput noise of less than 10-uVrms provides a clean supply for
    noise-sensitive applications.
  oPSRR of 75 dB at 1 kHz keeps a noisy supply from reaching target
  oOutput voltage range between 1.2 V and 4.5 V in 25 mV steps enables a
    variety of designs.
  oVery small 0.65-mm by 0.65-mm by 0.40-mm micro SMD package allows
    placement very close to target application.

800-mA LP38798 LDO

The LP38798 is a high-performance linear regulator capable of supplying 800-mA
of output current. Designed to meet the requirements of sensitive RF and
analog circuitry in applications such as basestations, the LP38798 features a
unique linear topology on an advanced CMOS process to deliver ultra-low output
noise and high PSRR at switching power supply frequencies. The LP38798 is
stable with both ceramic and tantalum output capacitors and requires a minimum
output capacitance of just 1-µF for stability.

LP38798 key features and benefits

Output noise of 5 uVrms provides a clean supply for noise-sensitive

  oPSRR of 90 dB at 10 kHz keeps a noisy supply from reaching target
  oWide operating input voltage range of 3 V to 20 V.
  oVery small 4.0-mm by 4.0-mm by 0.8-mm WSON package allows for placement
    very close to target application.

The LP5907 and LP38798 join TI's broad portfolio of LDO linear regulators,
which feature low quiescent current to increase efficiency in a variety of
applications. For more information, visit www.ti.com/ldo-pr.
