AP1159ADSXX
14V Input / 100mA Low voltage Output LDO Regulator
1. General Description
The AP1159ADSXX is a low dropout linear regulator with ON/OFF control, which can supply 100mA load
current. The IC is an integrated circuit with a silicon monolithic bipolar structure. The output voltage, trimmed
with high accuracy, is available from 0.9 to 1.2V in 0.1V steps. The output capacitor is available to use a small
0.47μF ceramic capacitor. The over current, thermal and reverse bias protections are integrated, and also the
package is small and thin type, SOT23-5. The IC is designed for space saving requirements.

Stability
Linear regulators require input and output capacitors in order to maintain the regulator's loop stability. If
0.47F or larger capacitor is connected to the output side, the IC provides stable operation at any voltage
(0.9VVoutTYP1.2V). (The capacitor must be larger than 0.47F at all temperature and voltage range) If the
capacitor with high Equivalent Series Resistance (ESR) (several ohms) is used, such as tantalum capacitor
etc., the regulator may oscillate. Please select parts with low ESR. Due to the parts are uneven, please enlarge
the capacitance as much as possible. With larger capacity, the output noise decreases more. In addition, the
response to the load change, etc. can be improved. The IC won’t be damaged by enlarging the capacity.
A recommended value of the application is as follows.

11.10 Operating Region and Power Dissipation
Figure 6. PCB Material: Glass epoxy (t=1.0mm)
Please do derating with 4.0mW/C at Pd=400mW and 25C or more. Thermal resistance (ja) is=250C/W.
The package loss is limited at the temperature that the internal temperature sensor works (about 150C).
Therefore, the package loss is assumed to be an internal limitation. There is no heat radiation characteristic of
the package unit assumed because of the small size. The device being mounted on the PCB carries heat away.
This value changes by the material and the copper pattern etc. of the PCB. The losses are approximately
400mW. Enduring these losses becomes possible in a lot of applications operating at 25C.
The overheating protection circuit operates when there are a lot of losses with the regulator (When outside
temperature is high or heat radiation is bad). The output current cannot be pulled enough and the output
voltage will drop when the protection circuit operates. When the junction temperature reaches 150C, the IC is
shut down. However, operation begins at once when the IC stops operation and the temperature of the chip
decreases.
How to determine the thermal resistance when mounted on PCB
The thermal resistance when mounted is expressed as follows:
Tj=jaPd+Ta
Tj of IC is set around 150C. Pd is the value when the thermal sensor is activated.
If the ambient temperature is 25C, then:
150=jaPd+25
ja=125/Pd (C /mW)
Noise bypass capacitor
The noise and the ripple rejection characteristics depend on the capacitance on the Np terminal.
The ripple rejection characteristic of the low frequency region improves by increasing the capacitance of Cnp.
A standard value is Cnp=0.001F. Increase Cnp in a design with important output noise and ripple rejection
requirements. The IC will not be damaged if the capacitor value is increased.
The on/off switching speed changes depending on the Np terminal capacitance. The switching speed slows
when the capacitance is large.

12. Definition of technical terms
■Relating Characteristic
・Output Voltage (Vout)
The output voltage is specified with Vin=(VoutTYP+1V) and Iout=5mA.
・Maximum Output Current (Iout MAX)
The rated output current is specified under the condition where the output voltage drops 0.3V the value
specified with Iout=5mA. The input voltage is set to Vout TYP+1V and the current is pulsed to minimize
temperature effect.
・Dropout Voltage (Vdrop)
The dropout voltage is the difference between the input voltage and the output voltage at which point the
regulator starts to fall out of regulation. Below this value, the output voltage will fall as the input voltage is
reduced. It is dependent upon the load current and the junction temperature.
・Line Regulation (LinReg)
Line regulation is the ability of the regulator to maintain a constant output voltage as the input voltage changes.
The line regulation is specified as the input voltage is changed from Vin=Vout TYP+1V to Vin=VoutTYP+6V. It
is a pulse measurement to minimize temperature effect.
・Load Regulation (LoaReg)
Load regulation is the ability of the regulator to maintain a constant output voltage as the load current changes.
It is a pulsed measurement to minimize temperature effects with the input voltage set to Vin=Vout TYP+1V. The
load regulation is specified output current step conditions of
5mA to 100mA.
・Ripple Rejection (R.R)
Ripple rejection is the ability of the regulator to attenuate the ripple content of the input voltage at the output.
It is specified with 200mVrms, 1kHz super-imposed on the input voltage, where Vin=Vout+1.5V. Ripple
rejection is the ratio of the ripple content of the output vs. input and is expressed in dB.
・Standby Current (Istandby)
Standby current is the current, which flows into the regulator when the output is turned off by the control
function (Vcont=0V).
■Relating Protection Circuit
・Over Current Sensor
The over current sensor protects the device when there is excessive output current. It also protects the device if
the output is accidentally connected to ground.
・Thermal Sensor
The thermal sensor protects the device in case the junction temperature exceeds the safe value (T J=150C).
This temperature rise can be caused by external heat, excessive power dissipation caused by large input to
output voltage drops, or excessive output current. The regulator will shut off when the temperature exceeds the
safe value. As the junction temperatures decrease, the regulator will begin to operate again. Under sustained
fault conditions, the regulator output will oscillate as the device turns off then resets. Damage may occur to the
device under extreme fault.
Please reduce the loss of the regulator when this protection operate, by reducing the input voltage or make
better heat efficiency.
In the case that the power, VinIshort (Short Circuit Current), becomes more than twice of the maximum
rating of its power dissipation in a moment, there is a possibility that the IC is destroyed before internal
thermal protection works.
・Reverse Voltage Protection
Reverse voltage protection prevents damage due to the output voltage being higher than the input voltage. This
fault condition can occur when the output capacitor remains charged and the input is reduced to zero, or when
an external voltage higher than the input voltage is applied to the output side
・ESD
MM: 200pF 0 200V or more
HBM: 100pF 1.5k 2000V or more
