) or "TI" recently launched the first current-sharing low dropout
(LDO) linear voltage regulators. The current-sharing ability of
the TPS7H1101-SP and the TPS7H1201-SP allows engineers to use two
devices simultaneously to double the output.
A low dropout regulator or LDO regulator can operate with
small input-output differential voltage. The benefits of low
dropout voltage are lower operating voltage and heat dissipation,
which in turn increases efficiency.
TI's LDOs can operate in a wide range of temperatures and are
thus considered suitable for usage in certain activities like the
exploration of oil and gas where extreme conditions persist and
hence, devices with precise specifications can only function. Low
output noise and a high power supply rejection ratio enable it to
support noise-sensitive applications like medical and oil and gas
Texas Instruments, Inc. is a global semiconductor company and
one of the world's leading designers and suppliers of digital
signal processors and analog integrated circuits, the engines
driving the digitization of electronics. These two types of
semiconductor products work together in digital electronic
devices such as digital cellular phones. Its other semiconductor
products include standard logic, application-specific integrated
circuits, reduced instruction-set computing microprocessors,
microcontrollers and digital imaging devices.
In the second quarter of fiscal 2013, TI generated total
revenue of $3.05 billion, which was up 5.6% sequentially but down
8.6% year over year and at the mid-point of the narrowed guidance
range of $2.99 billion to $3.11 billion.
Currently, TI has a Zacks Rank # 2 (Buy). Investors may also
consider other stocks such as
