5.5 V Input, 100 mA, Built-in Power Monitoring Output Circuit Voltage Regulator S-1740/1741 Series

The S-1740/1741 Series, developed using CMOS technology, is a positive voltage regulator with a power monitoring output, which features super low current consumption and low dropout voltage.
The regulator block has low current consumption of 0.35 μA typ. and high-accuracy output voltage of ±1.0%.
The function of the power monitoring output is prepared in the S-1740/1741 Series. The power monitoring output is a function that divides the input voltage (Vin) of the regulator into Vin/2 or Vin/3 and outputs the voltage. For example, this function makes it possible that the IC connects to a low voltage microcontroller A/D converter directly and the microcontroller monitors a battery voltage.
