The SP6260 family is a series of CMOS positive low noise voltage regulators capable of delivering up to 200mA of continuous current. Each of these devices consists of a voltage reference, an error amplifier, a resistor network for setting the output voltage, a current limit circuit for current protection and a chip enabled circuit.

The SP6260 series feature high ripple rejection, low dropout voltage, low noise, high output voltage accuracy and low current consumption which make them ideal for use in various battery powered and handheld devices.

The SP6260 series is offered in the following fixed output voltage options: 1.2V, 1.5V, 1.8V, 2.5V, 2.8V, 3.0V, 3.2V and 3.3V.

The SP6260 family is available in a standard lead free, RoHS compliant 5-pin SOT-23 package.

Yes. Try our Excel-based heat calculation spreadsheet ANP-03, Thermal Calculator
For further study, this spreadsheet is mentioned in the following helpful application note: ANP-02, Thermal Considerations for Linear Regulators 

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.
