General Description
The MAX4836/MAX4837 family of low-dropout (LDO)
linear regulators feature an accurate current-limiting
switch with an integrated FLAG or RESET function. These
devices operate from 2.5V to 5.5V and deliver up to
500mA of load current at a preset output voltage. Preset
output voltage levels are 1.8V/2.5V/2.8V/3.0V/3.3V.
The MAX4836/MAX4837 offer a programmable soft-
start control function to eliminate false reset during
startup. The MAX4836 provides a FLAG function to noti-
fy the system when the load current exceeds the limit.
The MAX4837 provides a RESET function to notify the
system when the output drops below the threshold.
Additionally, reverse-current protection prevents cur-
rent flowing from the output to the input. Other features
include a low 90µA quiescent current, a 0.1µA shut-
down current.
The MAX4836/MAX4837 are available in space-saving
6-pin SOT23 and TDFN packages. Each device is speci-
fied over the -40°C to +85°C extended temperature
range. Contact factory for other programmed output volt-
age versions from 1.5V to 3.3V in 100mV increments.
For pin-compatible 100mA versions of this device, refer
to the MAX4832/MAX4833. For pin-compatible 250mA
versions of this device, refer to the MAX4834/MAX4835.

Note: “xy” are placeholders for the output voltage levels of the
devices. Insert the values found in Table 1 at the end of this doc-
ument in the place of “xy”. The “_” is a placeholder for either the
RESET
or the
FLAG
feature. Insert “B” in the place of “_” for
RESET
and “C” for
FLAG
. “dd” is a placeholder for the reset
timeout period. Insert the values found in Table 2 in the place of
“dd.” For example, MAX4837EUT18BD2 has a 1.8V output volt-
age,
RESET
feature, and a 30ms reset timeout period. Note that
“dd” applies only to the devices with
RESET
option and does not
apply to the devices with
FLAG
option. For devices with the
FLAG
option, leave dd blank. Standard versions require a mini-
mum order increment of 2.5k units. Nonstandard versions must
be ordered in 10k unit increments. Contact factory for availability.

Note 1: Parts are 100% tested at +25°C. Limits across the full temperature range are guaranteed by design and correlation over the
specified temperature range.
Note 2: The dropout voltage is measured from VIN to VOUT when VOUT is 2% below its nominal value. The nominal output voltage is
measured from VOUT to GND when VIN is 1V greater than VOUT. Defined only for VOUT 2.5V.
Note 3: Soft-start time is defined as the time required for the output to rise from 10% of its nominal value to 90% of its nominal value.
Note 4: For VOUT < 2V, VIN must be above 2.5V.
Note 5: This is the maximum time OUT can be out of tolerance before a reset is issued. It is implemented to ensure that momentary
output glitches do not trigger a reset condition.
Note 6: In startup mode, the blanking time counter is not started until the soft-start time has elapsed. The total time from startup to
FLAG issued is tSS + tBLANK.

Detailed Description
The MAX4836/MAX4837 are ultra-low quiescent current,
low-dropout linear regulators with an integrated current
limiter. These devices guarantee up to 500mA drive
capabilities and regulate the preset output voltage.
The MAX4836 has a flag output that asserts low when
the load current exceeds the current limit for more than
the blanking time (tBLANK). The MAX4837 has a reset
output that asserts low when the regulator output volt-
age is below the reset threshold voltage (VRESET).
VRESET is 87.5% of the nominal output voltage. Figure 1
shows the simplified functional diagram and Figure 2
shows the typical application circuits.
FLAG
Output (MAX4836)
The open-drain FLAG output goes low and the LDO’s
pass transistor is latched off when the current in the
pass transistor is at its output current limit for more than
the blanking time (tBLANK). Cycling IN or SHDN (high to
low to high) brings the device out of its latched-off state
and back into normal operation.
RESET
Output (MAX4837)
The RESET output asserts when one of the following
conditions occurs:
The input voltage (VIN) is below the input undervolt-
age lockout threshold (VUVLO).
The output voltage (VOUT) is below the reset thresh-
old (VRESET).
SHDN is pulled low.
The device is in thermal shutdown.
When VOUT > VIN.
RESET remains low for the reset timeout period (tRESET)
after reset conditions are terminated. There are four
RESET timeout periods available as shown in the
Electrical Characteristics table. RESET is available in a
push-pull configuration as shown in the Selector Guide.
Shutdown
Pull SHDN low to shut down the LDO and reduce the
quiescent current consumption of the device from 90µA
to 0.1µA. In shutdown mode, the pass transistor, con-
trol circuit, and reference circuit are turned off. Connect
SHDN to a supply voltage greater than VIH to turn on
the LDO.

Shutdown Discharge (MAX4837)
OUT discharges through a 900internal resistor during
shutdown mode.
Reverse OUT to IN Current
When the output voltage is greater than the input volt-
age, the internal pass transistor turns off. To avoid
reverse-charging the input source, the current at IN is
guaranteed to be below 3µA when VOUT VIN.
Current Limit
The MAX4836/MAX4837 include an accurate internal
current-limiting circuit. OUT can be shorted to ground
indefinitely without damaging the part.
The MAX4836 latches off if the load current exceeds the
current limit for more than the blanking time (see the
FLAG
Output section). During soft-start, the device does
not latch off to an overload condition. During an overload
condition, the MAX4837 holds the current at current limit
until the thermal limit is reached. Once the junction tem-
perature reaches +165°C, thermal shutdown occurs.
Thermal Shutdown
When the junction temperature (TJ) exceeds +165°C,
the LDO’s pass transistor turns off allowing the junction
to cool. The LDO’s pass transistor turns on again after
the IC’s junction temperature cools by 15°C, resulting in
a pulsed output during continuous thermal-overload
conditions.
Soft-Start
During power-up, the soft-start ensures that the output
ramps up slowly reducing inrush current peaks. See
the soft-start response time plots in the Typical
Operating Characteristics. The soft-start time (tSS) is
given by the following equation:
tSS = CSS (ms)
where CSS is in nF.
A soft-start capacitor (CSS) of 10nF gives a 10ms tSS. A
1ms minimum soft-start time is fixed internally to ensure
that the output rises slowly even without any external
capacitor at SS pin to ground. The device is in soft-start
mode when either the voltage at IN or SHDN is cycled
high to low to high.
Applications Information
Capacitor Selection and Regulator
Stability
For stable operation over the full temperature range and
with load currents up to 500mA, use a 3.3µF (min)
ceramic output capacitor with an ESR <0.2. To reduce
noise and improve load transient response, stability, and
power-supply rejection, use larger output capacitor
values such as 10µF (note that some ceramic capacitors
exhibit large capacitance and ESR variation with temper-
ature). X7R capacitors provide good performance over
the -40°C to +85°C operating temperature range.
To improve power-supply rejection and transient
response, use a 0.1µF capacitor between IN and GND.
The MAX4836/MAX4837 remain stable with purely
resistive loads or current loads up to 500mA.
15kV Operational ESD Protection
A 3.3µF or higher value ceramic capacitor from OUT to
GND provides a 15kV (Human Body Model) protection
at OUT. The ESR value of the capacitor should be less
than 0.2.
Reset Transient Immunity
The reset circuit is relatively immune to short duration,
falling VOUT transients. The Typical Operating
Characteristics show a graph of the Maximum Transient
Duration vs. Reset Threshold Overdrive for which reset is
not asserted. The graph was produced using falling VOUT
transients starting at VOUT and ending below the reset
threshold by the magnitude indicated (reset threshold
overdrive). The graph shows the maximum pulse width
that a falling VOUT transient can typically have without
triggering the reset pulse. As the amplitude of the tran-
sient increases (i.e., goes further below the reset thresh-
old), the maximum allowable pulse width decreases.
Typically, a VOUT transient that goes only 10mV below the
reset threshold and lasts up to 54µs does not trigger a
reset pulse.
Layout
When using the TDFN package, connect its exposed
paddle to GND to provide a low thermal resistance
path for heat transfer from the IC junction to the printed
circuit board.
