The SPX5205 is a positive voltage regulator with very low dropout voltage, output noise and ground current (750μA at 100mA). VOUT has a tolerance of less than 1% and is temperature compensated. Fixed output voltages 1.2V, 1.8V, 2.5V, 2.8V, 3.0V, 3.3V, and 5.0V and an adjustable version are available in a small 5-pin SOT-23 package. Other key features include zero off-mode current, reverse battery protection, thermal shutdown and current limit. The SPX5205 is an excellent choice for use in battery powered applications and where power conservation is desired, such as cellular/cordless telephones, radio control systems and portable computers.
- Low noise output LDO: 40µVRMS possible

- Wide range of fixed output voltages:1.2V, 1.8V, 2.5V, 3.0V, 3.3V and 5.0V
- Zero off-mode current
- Small 5-pin SOT-23
- Pin compatible to MIC5205 / MAX8877 (fixed options only) and AS3815

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.
