MIC29302 Introduction

The MIC29302 is a LDO (Low Drop Out) variable voltage regulator from Microchip, meaning it is capable of regulating voltage efficiently without dropping much voltage across the regulator and can provide output voltage almost close to the input voltage. The regulator has a maximum output current of 3A during which it drop-out voltage across the regulator is only 450mA. The input voltage of the Regulator can be between 3V to 16V and the output voltage can be configured between 1.24V to 15V by using a couple of resistors.

Because of its low drop out voltage and zero-current enable mode the regulator is commonly used in high current battery operated applications. If you are looking for regulators that operate on further low voltage then consider the MIC37xxx series LDO regulators.

 

How to use the MIC29302

The output voltage of the MIC29302 regulator IC can be set by simply using two resistors of desired values. The Regulator comes in 5-pin package in which the enable pin can be used turn on or off the regulator, this helps the designers to turn off the regulator and prevent battery usage when not in use. The Adjust pin is used to set the output voltage of the regulator to the required value using the below circuit.

Circuit using MIC29302

 

As you can see the resistors values R1 and R2 decides the output voltage Vout of our regulator. The capacitor Cin and 10uF is used to filter an ripples form the input or output side of the regulator respectively. If the regulator is powered by battery then Cin is not mandatory. The dropout voltage of the regulator can vary between 150mV to a maximum of 450mV based on the current drawn from the regulator. Refer the datasheet for more information.
