The LM320T-5.0 is a three-terminal negative regulator with a fixed output voltage of b5V, b12V, and b15V, and
up to 1.5A load current capability. Where other voltages are required, the LM320T-5.0 provides an output
voltage range of b1.2V to b47V. The LM320T-5.0 need only one external component- a compensation
capacitor at the output, making them easy to apply.
Worst case guarantees on output voltage deviation due to any combination of line, load or temperature variation assure satisfactory system operation.
Exceptional effort has been made to make the LM320 Series
immune to overload conditions. The regulators have
current limiting which is independent of temperature, combined with thermal overload protection. Internal current limiting protects against momentary faults while thermal shutdown prevents junction temperatures from exceeding safe limits during prolonged overloads.
Although primarily intended for fixed output voltage applications, the LM320T-5.0 may be programmed for higher output voltages with a simple resistive divider. The low quiescent drain current of the devices allows this technique to be used with good regulation.
