Preface
PrefaceMy objective with the first edition of this book was to introduce, discuss, and illustrate how to design, simulate, build, test, and evaluate linear low-dropout (LDO) regulator integrated circuits (ICs). The driving inspiration for this effort is the important role that LDO regulator ICs play in modern-day and emerging state-of-the-art applications, as the demand and promise of system-on-chip (SoC) integration continues to drive old markets and create new ones. The fact is, the ubiquity of noisy and unpredictable energy sources and functional loads demands point-of-load (PoL) regulators that draw little to no power, yet generate accurate and fast-responding power supplies. As a result, analog and mixed-signal ICs that traditionally excluded power-conditioning features must now embed system and PoL power s…
