Dropout is the smallest difference between a regulator's input and its output voltage, which is required to maintain regulation and enable the regulator to provide rated voltage and current. Linear voltage regulators require inputs which are higher than the rated output voltages.
Keeping this in view, what is meant by LDO?
Definition. Low Drop Out: A linear voltage regulator that will operate even when the input voltage barely exceeds the desired output voltage. Synonyms. Low Dropout. LDO Regulator Low Dropout Regulator.
What is a LDO in the Navy?
A limited duty officer (LDO) is an officer in the United States Navy or United States Marine Corps who was selected for commissioning based on skill and expertise, and is not required to have a bachelor's degree.
What is load regulation of voltage regulator?
Load regulation is the capability to maintain a constant voltage (or current) level on the output channel of a power supply despite changes in the supply's load (such as a change in resistance value connected across the supply output).
