The characteristics of low dropout voltage and fast transient response
to step changes in load make it suitable for low voltage
microprocessor applications. The typical quiescent current
is
approximately 0.5mA and changes little with load current. The built-in
current-limit and thermal-shutdown functions prevent IC from damage
in fault conditions.
This device is available in U-DFN2030-8, SO-8EP, SOT223 and
TO252 packages.

Application Note
Input Capacitor
A minimum 2.2μF ceramic capacitor is recommended between IN and GND pins to decouple input power supply glitch and noise. The amount of
the capacitance may be increased without limit. Larger input capacitor like 10μF will provide better load transient response. This input capacitor
must be located as close as possible to the device to assure input stability and reduce noise. For PCB layout, a wide copper trace is required for
both IN and GND pins. A lower ESR capacitor type allows the use of less capacitance, while higher ESR type requires more capacitance.
Output Capacitor
The output capacitor is required to stabilize and help the transient response of the LDO. The AP7363 is stable with any type of capacitor, with no
limitations on minimum or maximum ESR. The device is designed to have excellent transient response for most applications with a small amount
of output capacitance. The device is also stable with multiple capacitors in parallel, which can be of any type of value. Additional capacitance
helps to reduce undershoot and overshoot during transient loads. This capacitor should be placed as close as possible to OUT and GND pins for
optimum performance.
Adjustable Operation
The AP7363 provides output voltage from 0.6V to 5.0V through external resistor divider as shown below.
The output voltage is calculated by:
⎛
R ⎞
VOUT = VREF ⎜1 + 1 ⎟
⎜ R ⎟
2⎠
⎝
Where VREF = 0.6V (the internal reference voltage)
Rearranging the equation will give the following that is used for adjusting the output to a particular voltage:
⎛V
⎞
R1 = R 2 ⎜ OUT − 1⎟
⎜V
⎟
⎝ REF
⎠
To maintain the stability of the internal reference voltage, R2 need to be kept smaller than 10kΩ.
No Load Stability
Other than external resistor divider, no minimum load is required to keep the device stable. The device will remain stable and regulated in no
load condition.

Application Note (cont.)
Stability and Phase Margin
Any regulator which operates using a feedback loop must be compensated in such a way as to ensure adequate phase margin, which is defined
as the difference between the phase shift and -180 degrees at the frequency where the loop gain crosses unity (0 dB). For most LDO regulators,
the ESR of the output capacitor is required to create a zero to add enough phase lead to ensure stable operation. The AP7363 has a internal
compensation circuit which maintains phase margin regardless of the ESR of the output capacitor, any type of capacitos can be used.
The two charts on the next page show the gain/phase plot of the AP7363 with an output of 1.2V, 10μF ceramic output capacitor, delivering 1.5A
load current and no load. It can be seen the phase margin is about 90° (which is very stable).

Short Circuit Protection
When output current at OUT pin is higher than current limit threshold, the current limit protection will be triggered and clamp the output current to
prevent over-current and to protect the regulator from damage due to overheating.
Thermal Shutdown Protection
Thermal protection disables the output when the junction temperature rises to approximately +170°C, allowing the device to cool down. When the
junction temperature reduces to approximately +160°C the output circuitry is enabled again. Depending on power dissipation, thermal resistance,
and ambient temperature, the thermal protection circuit may cycle on and off. This cycling limits the heat dissipation of the regulator, protecting it
from damage due to overheating.
Low Quiescent Current
The AP7363, consuming only around 0.5mA for all input range, provides great power saving in portable and low power applications.
Output Noise
This is the integrated value of the output noise over a specified frequency range. Input voltage and output load current are kept constant during
the measurement. Results are expressed in µVrms or µV√Hz.
The AP7363 is a low noise regulator and needs no external noise reduction capacitor. Output voltage noise is typically 100μVrms overall noise
level between 100 Hz and 100 kHz.
Noise is specified in two ways:
Output noise density is the RMS sum of all noise sources, measured at the regulator output, at a specific frequency (measured with a 1Hz
bandwidth). This type of noise is usually plotted on a curve as a function of frequency.
Output noise voltage is the RMS sum of spot noise over a specified bandwidth. Spot noise is measured in units μV/√Hz or nV/√Hz and total
output noise is measured in μV(rms). The primary source of noise in low-dropout regulators is the internal reference.

Application Note (cont.)
Power Dissipation
The device power dissipation and proper sizing of the thermal plane that is connected to the thermal pad is critical to avoid thermal shutdown and
ensure reliable operation. Power dissipation of the device depends on input voltage and load conditions and can be calculated by:
PD = (VIN - VOUT) X IOUT
The maximum power dissipation, handled by the device, depends on the junction to ambient thermal resistance, and maximum ambient
temperature, which can be calculated by the equation in the following:
PD _ max =
( +150°C - TA )
