The USM LM2931 positive voltage regulator features a very low quiescent current of 1mA or less when supplying 10mA loads.This unique characteristic and the extremely low input-output differential required for proper regulation (0.2V for output currents of 10mA) make the LM2931 the ideal regulator for standby power systems. Applications include memory standby circuits, CMOS and other low power processor power supplies as well as systems demanding as much as100mA of output current. Designed originally for automotive applications, theLM2931 and all regulated circuitry are protected from reverse batter installations or 2 battery jumps. During line transients, such as a load dump (60V) when the input voltage to the regulator can momentarily exceed the specified maximum operating voltage, the regulator will automatically shutdown to protect both internal circuits and the load. The LM2931 cannot be harmed by temporary mirror-image insertion. Familiar regulator features such as short circuit and thermal overload protection are also provided. The LM2931 family includes a fixed 5V output (3.8% tolerance for A grade) or anadjustable output with ON/OFF pin.

PRODUCT DESCRIPTION AND SHORT APPLICATION NOTE
The USM LM2931 positive voltage regulator features a very low quiescent current of 1mA or less when supplying 10mA loads.This unique characteristic and the extremely low input-output differential required for proper regulation (0.2V for output currents of 10mA) make the LM2931 the ideal regulator for standby power systems.

The LM2931 cannot be harmed by temporary mirror-image insertion. Familiar regulator features such as short circuit and thermal overload protection are also provided.
The LM2931 family includes a fixed 5V output (±3.8% tolerance for A grade) or anadjustable output with ON/OFF pin.
