• What are the differences and features between standard regulators and LDOs?
    • Standard regulators are also called 3-pin regulators, with the BA178/178M series considered industry-standard products. LDO is short for 'Low Drop Out', and is characterized by a smaller input/output voltage difference vs standard regulators, making it possible to suppress power loss. In recent years, the use of LDOs that support ceramic capacitors is increasing, and models featuring low current consumption, low voltage operation, high withstand voltage, and increased miniaturization are being developed.
