The SPX1585 is a low power 5A, adjustable and fixed voltage regulator that is very easy to use. It requires only two external resistors to set the output voltage for the adjustable version. The SPX1585 devices are designed for low voltage applications that offer lower dropout voltage and faster transient response. This device is an excellent choice for use in powering low voltage microprocessors that require a lower dropout, faster transient response to regulate from +2.5V to 3.8V supplies and as a post regulator for switching supplies applications. The SPX1585 features low dropout of a maximum 1.2 volts.
The SPX1585 offers full protection against overcurrent faults, reversed input polarity, reversed load insertion and positive and negative transient voltage. On-Chip trimming adjusts the reference voltage to 1%. The IQ of this device flows into the load, which increases efficiency. The SPX1585 devices are offered in a 3-pin TO-220 and TO-263 package compatible with other 3-terminal regulators. For an 8A low dropout regulator, refer to the SPX1584 datasheet.

Frequently Asked Questions
In this example, we looked for XRA1201. When you hover over it, it will turn grey and you can click anywhere in the grey box. This brings you to the product page. For example:
Click on Parts & Purchasing, highlighted in yellow 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:
Another method to find out if a part is OBS or EOL is to click on SUPPORT:
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.
