The SPX2945 is a low power voltage regulator. This device is an excellent choice for use in battery powered applications such as cordless telephones, radio control systems and portable computers. The SPX2945 features very low quiescent current (100μA typical) and very low dropout voltage. This includes a tight initial tolerance of 1% max and very low output temperature coefficient, making the SPX2945 useful as a low power voltage reference.
The error flag output feature is used as power-on reset for warning of a low output voltage, due to a falling voltage input of batteries. Another feature is the logic-compatible shutdown input which enables the regulator to be switched on and off. The SPX2945 is offered in 3-pin TO-220 package, SO-8 (same pinout as SPX2951), SOT-223, surface mount 3-pin TO-252, 3-pin TO-263 packages and 5-pin TO-263.
The regulator output voltage (of the 8-pin SO-8) may be pin-strapped for a 3.3V and 5.0V or programmed from 1.24V to 20V with an external pair of resistors. Look for SPX2951 for 150mA and SPX2954 for 250mA applications.

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.
