In an effort to reduce dropped mobile calls, Micrel Inc. developed the MIC94300 voltage follower output and the MIC94310 fixed output, low-dropout (LDO) IC that employ its latest Ripple Blocker active filter technology, which removes noise from the power supply.
Micrel's new Ripple
Blocker active filter technology improves minimum detectable signal
capturing for low-light image sensors by suppressing system power ripple
for the Image System Processor (ISP). By eliminating the large LC
filter that would typically be required to reduce ripple in a discrete
solution, the MIC943XX series devices provide more usable board space to
accommodate space-constrained designs.
include smart phones, medical imaging, tablets/ notebooks/webcams,
digital still and video cameras, bar code scanners, GPS and image system
processors for image sensors.
The MIC94300 integrates a low-RDSon, current-limit switch and a low-pass filter that passes DC and blocks the AC component of the input voltage. The MIC94310 is a low dropout regulator that Micrel says offers better PSRR performance from DC to 5MHz than discrete solutions. Both chips feature an active-high enable pin for power sequencing.
