Small, surface mount LDO regulators that allow long and stable operation of IoT equipment and wearable devices: TCR3UM series

Product News 2018-08

The package photograph of small, surface mount LDO regulators that allow long and stable operation of IoT equipment and wearable devices: TCR3UM series.

Toshiba Electronic Devices & Storage Corporation ("Toshiba") has launched 36 LDO regulator products under the "TCR3UM series", which are packed in the general purpose DFN4 package[1], for IoT equipment and wearable devices that feature low consumption current. The products are small, surface mount LDO regulators with 300 mA output (max) using state of the art CMOS process.

Electronics devices such as communication devices are increasingly equipped with coin or lithium-ion batteries. Mobile devices such as smart phones and tablets consume large current and are expected to be frequently charged. On the other hand, IoT sensors sending temperature or flow rate data used in agricultural or industrial equipment and wearable devices equipped with communication functions are required to operate long hours with less frequent battery charging or replacement, and also require stable and precise power supplies. Therefore, LDO regulators used as power supply ICs are also required to feature low consumption current allowing long time operation under low power as well as stable output voltage.
To meet such demand, Toshiba started mass production of our TCR3UG series products in September 2017. Our TCR3UG series products use the small and thin WCSP4F package[2], as well as achieve the industry’s best[3] trade-off between low consumption current characteristics and high ripple rejection ratio and high speed load transient response. In addition, TCR3UM series products using the general-purpose DFN4 package[1] have been released this time.

The new TCR3UM series products allow longer time battery drive and stable operation of sensors and CPUs that are susceptible to voltage fluctuation such as noise. They also incorporate protection functions such as overheat protection, overcurrent protection and rush current suppression. 36 products with output voltages which ranges from 0.8 V to 5.0 V have been mass-produced, allowing product selection depending on the applications.
