LT1963 simple pcb
Trying to get something better than my LM317 regs that would fit on a very tight space, so before I try something like trying to squeeze the super reg or a salas in smds, I wanted to try the LT1963.
The psychological limit is 1inch x 1inch or 25mm x 25mm
Voltages required would be 5V, 8V and 10V
Here is what I got so far
The part shown is a TI that gives almost identical performance in the same package.
Almost datasheet implementation, with the difference that instead of using R1, I am using a led and an LM329 for the reference.
Two leds would give ~5V.
A led and an LM329 would give ~10V.
An LM329 would give ~8V.
Does it make sense to use such a scheme like in LM317 to reduce impedance etc? And if so, would it benefit from filtering the reference?
The current setup gives a nice pcb so far
Note that the reference has an isolated ground pad, in order to allow sense-grounding it close to the load.
And if the reference thingy does not work, I can always use a normal resistor with it.
The cap pads are selected for ceramics with low capacitance drop with frequency, but the big pads would also allow soldering of other types, like polymer or tantalum.
Any thoughts or suggestions?
