300mA LDO Voltage Regulators with Tracker Output and Overvoltage Protector

High Integration Devices Combine LDO, Tracked Voltage, and Load Dump Protector

Please check latest availability status for a specific part variant.


The MAX15008 features a 300mA LDO regulator, a voltage tracker, and an overvoltage protection (OVP) controller to protect downstream circuits from high-voltage transients. The MAX15010 includes only the 300mA LDO voltage regulator and voltage tracker. Both devices operate over a wide 5V to 40V supply voltage range and are able to withstand load-dump transients up to 45V. The MAX15008/MAX15010 feature short-circuit and thermal-shutdown protection.

The 300mA LDO regulator consumes less than 67µA quiescent current at light loads and is well suited to power always-on circuits during "key off" conditions. The LDO features independent enable and hold inputs as well as a microprocessor (µP) reset output with an adjustable reset timeout period.

The voltage tracker accurately (±3mV) tracks a voltage applied to its input from either the LDO output or an external source. It can supply up to 50mA of current to a remote sensor, allowing for precise ratiometric tracking in industrial applications. A separate enable input turns the tracker on or off, reducing supply current when the tracker is unused. The voltage tracker also features protection against battery reversal, an output short circuit to the battery, or an output-voltage excursion below ground potential to as much as -5V.

The MAX15008 OVP controller operates with an external enhancement mode n-channel MOSFET. While the monitored voltage remains below the adjustable threshold, the MOSFET stays on. When the monitored voltage exceeds the OVP threshold, the OVP controller quickly turns off the external MOSFET. The OVP controller is configurable as a load-disconnect switch or a voltage limiter.

The MAX15008/MAX15010 are available in a thermally enhanced, 32-pin (5mm x 5mm) TQFN package and are fully specified over the -40°C to +125°C operating temperature range.
