TLV1117: TLV1117-33 input voltage level

Part Number: TLV1117

Hi, I want to use TLV1117-33 to convert 12 volts input to 3.3 volts output. I have checked the datasheet of the IC in which the page no. 4 says that recommended operating input voltage is 4.7 V to 15 V but in page 6,7 it is mentioned under electrical characteristics as : VIN= 4.75V to 10 V, IOUT= 0 to 800 mA the output voltage is 3.3 volts. So kindly confirm whether this IC supports my above mentioned requirement of converting 12 Volts to 3.3 volts or not?

  • Hi Vishwajit,

    The Electrical Characteristics table will state the test conditions that are used for specific tests.  The maximum dropout for TLV1117 is 1.3 V across load and temperature.

    As such you will be able to achieve a regulated output voltage of 3.3 V with an input of 4.7 V.

    Very Respectfully,
