19-1859; Rev 2; 6/04 Low-Dropout, 300mA Linear Regulators in SOT23 The MAX8887/MAX8888 low-dropout linear regulators operate from a 2.5V to 5.5V input and deliver up to 300mA continuous (500mA pulsed) current. The MAX8887 is optimized for low-noise operation, while the MAX8888 includes an open-drain POK ouput flag. Both regulators feature exceptionally low 100mV dropout at 200mA. These devices are available in a variety of preset output voltages in the 1.5V to 3.3V range. An internal PMOS pass transistor allows the low 55µA supply current to remain independent of load, making these devices ideal for portable battery-powered equipment such as personal digital assistants (PDAs), cellular phones, cordless phones, and notebook computers. Other features include a micropower shutdown mode, short-circuit protection, thermal shutdown protection, and an active-low open-drain power-OK (POK) output that indicates when the output is out of regulation. The MAX8887/MAX8888 are available in a thin 5-pin SOT23 package that is only 1mm high. ________________________Applications Features ♦ Guaranteed 300mA Output Current (500mA for Pulsed Loads) ♦ Low 100mV Dropout at 200mA Load ♦ POK Output (MAX8888) ♦ 42µVRMS Output Noise (MAX8887) ♦ Preset Output Voltages (1.5V, 1.8V, 2.85V, and 3.3V) ♦ 55µA No-Load Supply Current ♦ Thermal Overload and Short-Circuit Protection ♦ Foldback Output Current-Limit Protection ♦ 60dB PSRR at 1kHz ♦ 0.1µA Shutdown Current ♦ Thin 5-Pin SOT23 Package, 1mm High Ordering Information PART TEMP RANGE PINPACKAGE TOP MARK MAX8887EZK15-T -40°C to +85°C 5 SOT23-5 ADQD MAX8887EZK18-T -40°C to +85°C 5 SOT23-5 ADPX MAX8887EZK29-T -40°C to +85°C 5 SOT23-5 ADPY MAX8887EZK33-T -40°C to +85°C 5 SOT23-5 ADPZ MAX8887EZKxy-T* -40°C to +85°C 5 SOT23-5 — Digital Cameras MAX8888EZK15-T -40°C to +85°C 5 SOT23-5 ADQE PCMCIA Cards MAX8888EZK18-T -40°C to +85°C 5 SOT23-5 ADQA Hand-Held Instruments MAX8888EZK29-T -40°C to +85°C 5 SOT23-5 ADQB MAX8888EZK33-T -40°C to +85°C 5 SOT23-5 ADQC MAX8888EZKxy-T* -40°C to +85°C 5 SOT23-5 — Notebook Computers Wireless Handsets PDAs and Palmtop Computers Typical Operating Circuit *Other versions (xy) between +1.5 and +3.3V are available in 100mV increments.

MAX8887/MAX8888 Low-Dropout, 300mA Linear Regulators in SOT23 Detailed Description The MAX8887/MAX8888 are low-dropout, low-quiescent-current linear regulators designed primarily for battery-powered applications. The devices supply loads up to 300mA and are available in several fixed output voltages in the 1.5V to 3.3V range. The MAX8887 is optimized for low-noise operation, while the MAX8888 includes an open-drain POK output flag. As illustrated in Figure 1, the MAX8888 consists of a 1.25V reference, error amplifier, P-channel pass transistor, and internal feedback voltage divider. Internal P-Channel Pass Transistor The MAX8887/MAX8888 feature a 0.5Ω P-channel MOSFET pass transistor. Unlike similar designs using PNP pass transistors, P-channel MOSFETs require no base drive, which reduces quiescent current. PNPbased regulators also waste considerable current in dropout when the pass transistor saturates and use high base drive currents under large loads. The MAX8887/MAX8888 do not suffer from these problems and consume only 55µA of quiescent current under heavy loads as well as in dropout. Output Voltage Selection The MAX8887/MAX8888 are supplied with various factory-set output voltages ranging from 1.5V to 3.3V. The part number’s two-digit suffix identifies the nominal output voltage. For example, the MAX8887EZK33 has a preset output voltage of 3.3V (see the Ordering Information). Shutdown Drive SHDN low to enter shutdown. During shutdown, the output is disconnected from the input and supply current drops to 0.1µA. When in shutdown, POK and OUT are driven low. SHDN can be pulled as high as 6V, regardless of the input and output voltages. Power-OK Output The power-OK output (POK) pulls low when OUT is less than 93% of the nominal regulation voltage. Once OUT exceeds 93% of the nominal voltage, POK goes high impedance. POK is an open-drain N-channel output. To obtain a logic level output, connect a pullup resistor from POK to OUT. A 100kΩ resistor works well for most applications. POK can be used as a power-on-reset (POR) signal to a microcontroller (µC) or to drive other logic. Adding a capacitor from POK to ground creates POK delay. When the MAX8887 is shut down, POK is held low independent of the output voltage. If unused, leave POK grounded or unconnected. Current Limit The MAX8887/MAX8888 monitor and control the pass transistor’s gate voltage, limiting the output current to 6 0.8A (typ). This current limit is reduced to 500mA (typ) when the output voltage is below 93% of the nominal value to provide foldback current limiting. Thermal Overload Protection Thermal overload protection limits total power dissipation in the MAX8887/MAX8888. When the junction temperature exceeds TJ =+170°C, a thermal sensor turns off the pass transistor, allowing the device to cool. The thermal sensor turns the pass transistor on again after the junction temperature cools by 20°C, resulting in a pulsed output during continuous thermal overload conditions. Thermal overload protection protects the MAX8887/MAX8888 in the event of fault conditions. For continuous operation, do not exceed the absolute maximum junction-temperature rating of TJ=+150°C. Operating Region and Power Dissipation The MAX8887/MAX8888’s maximum power dissipation depends on the thermal resistance of the IC package and circuit board. The temperature difference between the die junction and ambient air, and the rate of air flow. The power dissipated in the device is P = IOUT ✕ (VINV OUT ). The maximum allowed power dissipation is 727mW or: PMAX = (TJ(MAX) - TA) / (θJC + θCA) where T J(MAX) -T A is the temperature difference between the MAX8887/MAX8888 die junction and the surrounding air; θJC is the thermal resistance from the junction to the case; and θCA is the thermal resistance from the case through PC board, copper traces, and other materials to the surrounding air. Refer to Figure 2 for the MAX8887/MAX888 valid operating region. Noise Reduction For the MAX8887 only, an external 0.01µF bypass capacitor at BP creates a lowpass filter for noise reduction. The MAX8887 exhibits 42µVRMS of output voltage noise with CBP = 0.01µF and COUT = 2.2µF (see the Typical Operating Characteristics). Applications Information Capacitor Selection and Regulator Stability Connect a 2.2µF ceramic capacitor between IN and ground and a 2.2µF ceramic capacitor between OUT and ground. The input capacitor (C IN ) lowers the source impedance of the input supply. Reduce noise and improve load-transient response, stability, and power-supply rejection by using a larger ceramic output capacitor such as 4.7µF. The output capacitor’s (COUT) equivalent series resistance (ESR) affects stability and output noise.

Functional Diagram Input-Output (Dropout) Voltage A regulator’s minimum input-to-output voltage differential (dropout voltage) determines the lowest usable supply voltage at which the output is regulated. In battery-powered systems, this determines the useful end-of-life battery voltage. The MAX8887/MAX8888 use a P-channel MOSFET pass transistor. Its dropout voltage is a function of drain-to-source on-resistance (R DS(ON) ) multiplied by the load current (see the Typical Operating Characteristics). VDROPOUT = VIN - VOUT = RDS(ON) ✕ IOUT 400 TA = +85°C TA = +70°C MAXIMUM RECOMMENDED OUTPUT CURRENT 300 2.0 2.5 VOUT = +1.8V 100 VOUT = +3.3V 200 VOUT = +2.85V Noise, PSRR, and Transient Response The MAX8887/MAX8888 are designed to operate with low dropout voltages and low quiescent currents in battery-powered systems while still maintaining excellent noise, transient response, and AC rejection. See the Typical Operating Characteristics for a plot of powersupply rejection ratio (PSRR) versus frequency. When operating from noisy sources, improved supply-noise rejection and transient response can be achieved by increasing the values of the input and output bypass capacitors and through passive filtering techniques. MAXIMUM OUTPUT CURRENT vs. INPUT VOLTAGE (POWER DISSIPATION LIMIT) MAXIMUM OUTPUT CURRENT (mA) put capacitors with an ESR of 0.1Ω or less to ensure stability and optimum transient response. Surface-mount ceramic capacitors have very low ESR and are commonly available in values up to 10µF. Connect CIN and COUT as close to the MAX8887/MAX8888 as possible to minimize the impact of PC board trace inductance. 0 0 0.5 1.0 1.5 3.0 3.5 4.0 (VIN - VOUT) (V) Figure 2.
