The L79xxAC series of three-terminal negative regulators is available in TO-220 and D2PAK packages and several fixed output voltages. These regulators can provide local on-card regulation, eliminating the distribution problems associated with single point regulation; furthermore, having the same voltage option as the L78xxA positive standard series, they are particularly suited for split power supplies. If adequate heat sinking is provided, they can deliver over 1.5 A output current.
■ Output current to 1.5 A
■ Output voltages of -5; -12; -15 V
■ Thermal overload protection
■ Short circuit protection
■ Output transition SOA protection
