The EC4223 is a low dropout current regulator rated for 350mA/250mA constant sink current. The constant sink current will ensure that the same amount of power is applied to the power LED and consequently maintain the uniform brightness throughout the possible voltage variations from the power source. The IC also features low quiescent current and is typically at 212uA. This will minimize the power consumption from the IC itself.
The IC has EN function built-in for applications where EN function or Dim function is needed. Please contact us directly if EN function is required.
EC4223 is presently available in low profile SOT89-3L packages.

It is important that the thermal limit of the package is not exceeded. The EC4223 has built-in thermal protection. When the thermal limit is exceeded, the IC will enter protection, and VOUT will be pulled to ground. The power dissipation for a given application can be calculated as following:
The power dissipation (PD) is PD = IOUT * [VIN – VOUT]
The thermal limit of the package is then limited to PD(MAX) = [TJ – TA]/ΘJA where TJ is the junction temperature, TA is the ambient temperature, and ΘJA is around 180°C/W for EC4223. EC4223 is designed to enter thermal protection at 150°C. For example, if TA is 25°C then the maximum PD is limited to about 0.7W. In other words, if IOUT(MAX) = 350mA, then [VIN – VOUT] cannot exceed 2V.
