GAPTEC Electronic presents the first non-isolated 2A switching regulator in a SIP3 design as an alternative to the standard linear regulator in a TO-220 package. Like the other regulators of the LMS series, the LMS78-2.0 belongs to the family of so-called “drop-in” switching regulator. These are pin-compatible with the standard LM78 linear regulator case, they make a heat sink unnecessary and thus gives the user a lot of space on the board. The regulators offer 5mA quiescent current consumption, they are continuous short circuit protected and include typical 25mV pp ripple and noise at 20MHz bandwidth. The temperature range is -40°C to +85°C (without derating to 71°C). Input voltage range: 4.75 to 18 VDC. The converter has output voltages of 1,5 to 6.5 VDC and provides a high efficiency of up to 92%. As an additional option GAPTEC offers this switching regulator with legs bent and guarantees very short delivery times. The product warranty is 3 years.
