EC78XXM – 500mA Positive Voltage Regulators

General description

EC78XXM series of three-terminal positive voltage regulators employ built-in current limiting,thermal shutdown, and safe-operating area protection which makes them virtually immune to damage from output overloads. With adequate heat sink, they can deliver in excess of 0.5A output current. Typical applicationswould include local (on-card) regulators which can eliminate the noise and degraded performance associated with single-point regulation.
