It is exceptionally easy to use and re- Also, it makes an especially simple adjustable switching quires only two external resistors to set the output voltage. Adjustable regulator, a programmable output regulator, or by connecting Further, both line and load regulation are better than stan- a fixed resistor between the adjustment pin and output, the dard fixed regulators. LM117 can be used as a precision current regulator. Sup- In addition to higher performance than fixed regulators, the plies with electronic shutdown can be achieved by clamping LM117 series offers full overload protection available only in the adjustment terminal to ground which programs the out- IC s.

Regulator Features Normally, no capacitors are needed unless the device issituated more than 6 inches from the input filter capacitors in n Guaranteed 0.5A or 1.5A output current which case an input bypass is needed. An optional output n Adjustable output down to 1.2V capacitor can be added to improve transient response. The n Current limit constant with temperature adjustment terminal can be bypassed to achieve very high n 80 dB ripple rejection ripple rejection ratios which are difficult to achieve with stan- n Output is short-circuit protected dard 3-terminal regulators. Besides replacing fixed regulators, the LM117 is useful in awide variety of other applications.
