The AP431S is a 3-terminal adjustable shunt regulator with guaranteed thermal stability over a full operation range. It features sharp turn-on characteristics, low temperature coefficient and low output impedance, which makes it ideal substitute for Zener diode in applications such as switching power supply, charger and other adjustable regulators.
The AP431S has the same electrical specifications as the industry standard 431 except that it features a low minimum cathode current for regulation. The typical value of 50μA makes the parts ideal for very low power dissipation applications.
The output voltage of AP431S can be set to any value between VREF (2.5V/2.495V) and the corresponding maximum cathode voltage (36V).
The AP431S is offered in two grade initial voltage tolerance at +25°C, 0.5% and 1%.
This IC is available in 3 packages: TO92 (ammo packing), SOT23 and SOT89.
