Protection and Characterization
10106081010601 Protection and CharacterizationUnderstanding the performance objectives of a linear regulator and designing an integrated circuit (IC) that fulfills those goals are, of course, first and foremost in the design process. However, neglecting to protect the regulator against damaging and often catastrophic, though unintended, but nonetheless realistic events renders the IC ineffectual and the system it supports inoperable, if not worse. The first line of defense against these harmful conditions is to protect the IC at the circuit level, especially when power levels can surpass the operating and breakdown limits of the regulator.Characterizati…
