Micropower 100mA CMOS LDOs


The SP6200 and SP6201 are CMOS Low Dropout (LDO) regulators designed to meet a broad range of applications that require accuracy, speed and ease of use.

These LDOs offer extremely low quiescent current, which only increases slightly under load, thus providing advantages in ground current performance over bipolar LDOs. The LDOs handle an extremely wide load range and guarantee stability with a 1μF ceramic output capacitor. They have excellent low frequency Power Supply Rejection Ratio (PSRR), not found in other CMOS LDOs and thus offer exceptional line regulation. High frequency PSRR is better than 40dB up to 400kHz. Load regulation is excellent and temperature stability is comparable to bipolar LDOs. An enable feature is provided on all versions.

Both LDOs are available in fixed and adjustable output voltage versions and come in an industry standard 5-pin SOT-23 and small 2 x 3mm 8-pin DFN packages. A VOUT good indicator is provided on all fixed output versions.

Frequently Asked Questions

The best way to determine this is to go to maxlinear.com and type the part into the search function. At or near the top of the results you should see something that looks like:

In this example, we looked for XRA1201. Click on part number header or on the link at the bottom of the result.  This brings you to the product page. For example:


Click on Parts & Purchasing, highlighted with the blue arrow above. The screen changes to:


Notice the status column and the “Show obsolete parts” link.  A legend tells you the definition of the different statuses. Click on the “Show obsolete parts” link to see EOL or OBS part numbers along with the Active part numbers, the legend still present:


Another method to find out if a part is OBS or EOL is to click on SUPPORT at the top:


And then Product Change Notifications:


Type the part into the search, and click on one of the part numbers from the drop down menu. Then you can look for the Product Discontinuation Notice, which generally is at the top of the list, for example:


If you see this, it tells you that this particular orderable part has been discontinued and when the last order date is, or was. If you click on the file, then you can view the notice we sent about this if you purchased the part in the recent past. It may also advise of a replacement part. When an orderable part first becomes discontinued, Product Discontinuation Notices are sent are sent to those who have purchased the parts in the recent past, if purchased directly, with a dated opportunity to place a last order.
