Overall Customer Rating

This fixed voltage regulator is a monolithic integrated circuit in a TO220 type package designed for use in a wide variety of applications including local, oncard regulation.This regulator em-ploys internal current limiting, thermal shutdown, and safe area compensation.With adequate heat-sinking it can deliver output currents in excess of 1.0 ampere.

Detailed Description
(Manufacturer # NTE966 )
  • Output Current in Excess of 1.0 Ampere
  • No External Components Reguired
  • Internal Thermal Overload Protection
  • Internal Short Circuit Current Limiting
  • Output Transistor Safe-Area Compensation
Application Information:
This fixed−voltage regulator is designed with Thermal Overload Protection that shuts down the circuit when subjected to an excessive power overload condition, Internal Short−Circuit Protection that limits the maximum current the circuit will pass, and Output Transistor Safe−Area Compensation that reduces the output short−circuit current as the voltage across the pass transistor is increased.

In many low current applications, compensation capacitors are not required. However, it is recom-mended that the regulator input be bypassed with a capacitor if the regulator is connected to the power supply filter with long wire lengths,or if the output load capacitor is large. An input bypass capacitor should be selected to provide good high−frequency characteristics to insure stable operation under all load conditions. A 0.33μF or larger tantalum, mylar, or other capacitor having low internal imped-ance at high frequencies should be chosen. The bypass capacitor should be mounted with the short-est possible leads directly across the regulators input terminals. Normally good construction tech-niques should be used to minimize ground loops and lead resistance drops since the regulator has no external sense leads.
