The SPX3819 is a positive voltage regulator with a low dropout voltage and low noise output. In addition, this device offers a very low ground current of 800μA at 100mA output. The SPX3819 has an initial tolerance of less than 1% max and a logic compatible on/off switched input. When disabled, power consumption drops to nearly zero. Other key features include reverse battery protection, current limit and thermal shutdown. The SPX3819 includes a reference bypass pin for optimal low noise output performance. With its very low output temperature coefficient, this device also makes a superior low power voltage reference.

The SPX3819 is an excellent choice for use in battery powered applications such as cordless telephones, radio control systems and portable computers. It is available in several fixed output voltage options or with an adjustable output voltage.

This device is offered in 8-pin NSOIC, 8-pin DFN and 5-pin SOT-23 packages.

  • Low noise: 40µV possible
  • High accuracy: 1%
  • Reverse battery protection
  • Low dropout: 340mV at full load
  • Low quiescent current: 90µA
  • Zero off-mode current
  • Fixed output: 1.2V, 1.5V, 1.8V, 2.5V, 3.0V, 3.3V, 5.0V
  • 5-pin SOT-23, 8-pin nSOIC and 8-pin 2 x 3 DFN packages

The SPX3819 data sheet contains a graph of ground current vs load current for your review.
 
Also we suggest that you download the Thermal Considerations application note which includes a few example calculations from the SPX3819: ANP-02, Thermal Considerations for Linear Regulators
 
The Linear Regulator Heat Calculator could also prove helpful: ANP-03, Thermal Calculator
 
Customer bench testing is strongly recommended using intended application circuit to ensure proper operation. 

Input and output capacitance may be increased without limit.

If the bypass pin is to be used, a 10nF ceramic capacitor is suggested. You may also use the value / type mentioned. The only concern with the bypass feature is that startup time is increased. If startup time is a concern then the bypass pin should be kept open. Different values of bypass capacitors will result in different startup times.

This is a little difficult to answer without knowing how the LED will be modulated. If the enable input is used for modulation it is possible that the device may not react fast enough to provide an output. This is very true if the Bypass pin is used. If the output load exceeds the current limit trip point, then the output will be turned off to protect the device. However if the output is always on and modulation is done with some external circuitry, then adding extra capacitance to the output could satisfy the current demand of the LED so as not to cause current limit activation.

Ceramic capacitors may be used for this part. For Tantalum or Aluminum Electrolytic types, keep the Equivalent Series Resistance (ESR) as small as possible.

A small common mode choke would be best for filtering this ripple. Variations / combinations of input capacitance might also help but bench testing would be required.

The datasheet does not state that this device is operable in a pre-biased output condition; therefore, leakage may occur.

If the input voltage is above dropout voltage then the part will regulate for the entire output current range up to 500mA.
