Linear Voltage Regulator Market: Introduction
Due to the increase in the number of integrated circuits, specifically the low powered circuits, in almost every electronic product, the demand and scope of linear voltage regulators has increased in the recent past. Linear voltage regulators offer many advantages over other alternatives. For instance, linear voltage regulators have simple architecture, are easy to use and are relatively inexpensive. With the growth of the electronics industry, the automotive electronics industry is also seeing a sharp growth pattern, which in turn, will escalate the market of linear voltage regulators.
Linear voltage regulators convert any input level voltage into a regulated output voltage. Linear voltage regulators work by adjusting the effective series resistance of the regulator based on a feedback voltage, essentially making it a voltage divider circuit. This lets the linear voltage regulator produce an effective constant voltage, regardless of the current load placed on it. This technique of voltage regulation is considered to be basic and is widely used for simple applications as it gives a low output ripple voltage and also gives fast response time to load or line changes. Another advantage associated with using a linear voltage regulator is that it a linear voltage regulator has low electromagnetic interference and produces less noise.
