Nano Cap™, QuiCur™, 150mA, Adjustable Output LDO Regulator for Automotive
The BD900N1G-C is linear regulator using the Nano Cap™ topology designed as low current consumption products for power supplies in various automotive applications requiring a direct connection to the battery. This product is designed for up to 45V as an absolute maximum voltage and to operate until 150mA for the output current with low current consumption 28μA(Typ). This can regulate the output with a very high accuracy ±2.0%.
What is Nano Cap™?
Nano Cap™ is a combination of technologies which allow stable operation even if output capacitance is connected with the range of nF unit.
What is QuiCur™?
QuiCur™ is a combination of technologies that provides high-speed load response.

In recent years, the continuing digitization of all types of equipment has been increasing the number of electronic components, which in turn has been driving the demand to reduce the number of capacitors used for circuit stabilization to shrink both the size and the bill of material (BOM). This requires power supply ICs in power supply circuits that can achieve stable operation with small sized capacitors, but until now it had been difficult to achieve stable operation in applications with output capacitances of 1μF or less.
New Product Details
The new BD9xxN1 series of automotive primary LDOs meets the basic requirements of automotive products, such as operation above 125°C, qualification under the AEC-Q100 automotive reliability standard, and input voltages greater than 40V for the primary power supply. Incorporating ROHM’s Nano Cap™ ultra-stable control technology supports an output capacitance of 100nF, which is less than 1/10 of the value of standard products, to ensure stable operation required by applications (output voltage variation within 100mV: condition is 1mA ⇔ 50mA/1μs load current variation) even when the input voltage and load current fluctuate. This makes it possible to provide high performance with a good balance in terms of output capacitance range and response characteristics.
◇Powertrain (i.e. fuel injection) and tire pressure monitoring systems (TPMS)
◇Body systems (e.g. body control modules)
◇ADAS (e.g. Domain Controllers, ECUs, Zonal processing)
◇AInfotainment including instrument clusters and head-up displays (HUD)
Suitable for a wide range of applications in addition to automotive primary power supply systems.
As a simulation model for verifying these new products, ROHM Real Model is a high accuracy SPICE model that utilizes original model-based technology to faithfully reproduce the electrical and temperature characteristics of the actual IC, resulting in an outstanding match between the IC and simulation values such as “load response” waveform which is difficult to reproduce. This ensures reliable verification, contributing to more efficient application development – for example by preventing rework after prototyping.
