High performance voltage regulators
The new high performance voltage regulator family offers a full range of ultra-low current consumption automotive linear voltage regulators with low dropout voltage and wide input voltage range. The automotive high performance LDOs have the capability to extend battery life, save PCB space and system costs. With output currents ranging from 50mA to 500mA and various features (EN, RESET, Watchdog), choose Infineon’s high performance LDO family, it has the right fit for any body/infotainment application. To enhance Infineon’s portfolio of Automotive Linear Voltage Regulators serving the 12V applications, Infineon offers the first robust package in a 24V version to perform in the transportation market including trucks, commercial, construction and agricultural vehicles.
The new robust package, the TLT807B0EPV not only takes the load dump voltage requirements into consideration but also makes sure that the lifetime requirements are fulfilled by performing extended qualifications. A car on average has a lifetime of about 300k km where as heavy duty trucks can have lifetimes of 800k km up to 1000k km. This makes the ‘lifetime’ requirements for these vehicles three times as much as those for cars.
