The XC6206P502 is highly precise, low power consumption, 3 terminal, positive voltage regulators manufactured using CMOS and laser trimming technologies. The series provides large currents with a significantly small dropout voltage.
The XC6206 consists of a current limiter circuit, a driver transistor, a precision reference voltage and an error correction circuit. The series is compatible with low ESR ceramic capacitors. The current limiter’s foldback circuit operates as a short circuit protection as well as the output current limiter for the output pin. Output voltages are internally by laser trimming technologies. It is selectable in 0.1V increments within a range of 1.2V to 5.0V.
The regulator has a low quiescent current and high ripple rejection ratio, making it suitable for use in low-power and noise-sensitive applications. The IC has a compact SOT-23-5 package, which makes it easy to use in space-constrained designs.

1. How do I calculate the output voltage of an LM317T circuit?
The output voltage of an LM317T circuit can be calculated using the formula: Vout = Vref (1 + R2/R1), where Vref is the reference voltage (usually 1.25V), R1 is the resistor between the ADJ and OUT pins, and R2 is the resistor between the OUT and GND pins.
2. Can this IC be used as a current regulator?
Yes, It can be used as a current regulator by using a sense resistor in series with the load to limit the output current to a desired level. The output voltage will then adjust automatically to maintain the current level.
