Hi TI Support,
When I read the datasheet, it says that it has output short-circuit protection. But, on the same page also, it says, "Because the regulator is floating and receives only the input-to-output differential voltage, supplies…

Part Number: LM338 Other Parts Discussed in Thread: LM138 , Hello,
We have a customer with below questions. Appreciate your help to advice
1) The graph of Figure 5 on data sheet page 6 indicates drop-out voltages for load levels at 5A, 3A and 1A. Is there…
Part Number: LM338 Hi,
I'm building a simple battery charger for my personal hobby project. The circuit is based on the reference design from the datasheet with input voltage of 15V (initially had been 14V but I changed it afterwards) and output voltage…
Part Number: LM338 The equation on page 11 of the lm338.pdf file is incorrect. It has "(1+R2/R2)" which should be as on page 12, "(1+R2/R1)" please pass that on to be corrected.
Question: Where would I buy real TI LM338s?
Part Number: LM338 Hi
We are considering heat sink for LM338 (TO-220).
We uses following equations.
Vin = 12V Vout=4.5V Io=0.7V Ta=60C Tj=125C
Iq = 3mA as maximum ( According to Figure 9 )
Pd = (Vin - Vout) * Iout + (Vin * Iq) = 5.28W
Tj = Ta +(Rjc + Rcs…
