5A Positive Adjustable
Voltage Regulator
Description
The LT®138A series of adjustable regulators provide 5A
output current over an output voltage range of 1.2V to
32V. The internal voltage reference is trimmed to less
than 1%, enabling a very tight output voltage. In addition
to excellent line and load regulation, with full overload
protection, the LT138A incorporates new current limit-
ing circuitry allowing large transient load currents to be
handled for short periods. Transient load currents of up
to 12A can be supplied without limiting, eliminating the
need for a large output capacitor.
The LT138A is an improved version of the popular LM138
with improved circuit design and advanced process tech-
niques to provide superior performance and reliability.
The graph below shows the significant improvement in
output voltage tolerance achieved by using the LT138A
or LT338A.
