LM340-N/LM78XX Series 3-Terminal Positive Regulators
Check for Samples: LM340-N,LM78xx
1FEATURES DESCRIPTION
The LM140/LM340A/LM340-N/LM78XXC monolithic
2 Complete Specifications at 1A Load 3-terminal positive voltage regulators employ internal
Output Voltage Tolerances of ±2% at Tj= 25°C current-limiting, thermal shutdown and safe-area
and ±4% Over the Temperature Range compensation, making them essentially indestructible.
(LM340A) If adequate heat sinking is provided, they can deliver
over 1.0A output current. They are intended as fixed
Line Regulation of 0.01% of VOUT/V of ΔVIN at voltage regulators in a wide range of applications
1A Load (LM340A) including local (on-card) regulation for elimination of
Load Regulation of 0.3% of VOUT/A (LM340A) noise and distribution problems associated with
Internal Thermal Overload Protection single-point regulation. In addition to use as fixed
voltage regulators, these devices can be used with
Internal Short-circuit Current Limit external components to obtain adjustable output
Output Transistor Safe Area Protection voltages and currents.
P+Product Enhancement Tested Considerable effort was expended to make the entire
series of regulators easy to use and minimize the
number of external components. It is not necessary to
bypass the output, although this does improve
transient response. Input bypassing is needed only if
the regulator is located far from the filter capacitor of
the power supply.
The 5V, 12V, and 15V regulator options are available
in the steel TO-3 power package. The
LM340A/LM340-N/LM78XXC series is available in the
TO-220 plastic power package, and the LM340-N-5.0
is available in the SOT-223 package, as well as the
LM340-5.0 and LM340-12 in the surface-mount
DDPAK/TO-263 package.
Typical Applications
*Required if the regulator is located far from the power supply filter.
**Although no output capacitor is needed for stability, it does help
transient response. (If needed, use 0.1 μF, ceramic disc). VOUT = 5V + (5V/R1 + IQ) R2 5V/R1 > 3 IQ,
load regulation (Lr)[(R1 + R2)/R1] (Lrof LM340-5).

(1) Absolute Maximum Ratings are limits beyond which damage to the device may occur. Operating Conditions are conditions under which
the device functions but the specifications might not be ensured. For ensured specifications and test conditions see the Electrical
Characteristics.
(2) Military datasheets are available upon request. At the time of printing, the military datasheet specifications for the LM140K-5.0/883,
LM140K-12/883, and LM140K-15/883 complied with the min and max limits for the respective versions of the LM140. The LM140H and
LM140K may also be procured as JAN devices on slash sheet JM38510/107.
(3) If Military/Aerospace specified devices are required, please contact the Texas Instruments Sales Office/Distributors for availability and
specifications.
(4) The maximum allowable power dissipation at any ambient temperature is a function of the maximum junction temperature for operation
(TJMAX = 125°C or 150°C), the junction-to-ambient thermal resistance (θJA), and the ambient temperature (TA). PDMAX = (TJMAX
TA)/θJA. If this dissipation is exceeded, the die temperature will rise above TJMAX and the electrical specifications do not apply. If the die
temperature rises above 150°C, the device will go into thermal shutdown. For the TO-3 package (NDS), the junction-to-ambient thermal
resistance (θJA) is 39°C/W. When using a heatsink, θJA is the sum of the 4°C/W junction-to-case thermal resistance (θJC) of the TO-3
package and the case-to-ambient thermal resistance of the heatsink. For the TO-220 package (NDE), θJA is 54°C/W and θJC is 4°C/W. If
SOT-223 is used, the junction-to-ambient thermal resistance is 174°C/W and can be reduced by a heatsink (see Applications Hints on
heatsinking).If the DDPAK\TO-263 package is used, the thermal resistance can be reduced by increasing the PC board copper area
thermally connected to the package: Using 0.5 square inches of copper area, θJA is 50°C/W; with 1 square inch of copper area, θJAis
37°C/W; and with 1.6 or more inches of copper area, θJA is 32°C/W.
(5) ESD rating is based on the human body model, 100 pF discharged through 1.5 kΩ.

APPLICATION HINTS
The LM340-N/LM78XX series is designed with thermal protection, output short-circuit protection and output
transistor safe area protection. However, as with any IC regulator, it becomes necessary to take precautions to
assure that the regulator is not inadvertently damaged. The following describes possible misapplications and
methods to prevent damage to the regulator.
SHORTING THE REGULATOR INPUT
When using large capacitors at the output of these regulators, a protection diode connected input to output
(Figure 21) may be required if the input is shorted to ground. Without the protection diode, an input short will
cause the input to rapidly approach ground potential, while the output remains near the initial VOUTbecause of the
stored charge in the large output capacitor. The capacitor will then discharge through a large internal input to
output diode and parasitic transistors. If the energy released by the capacitor is large enough, this diode, low
current metal and the regulator will be destroyed. The fast diode in Figure 21 will shunt most of the capacitors
discharge current around the regulator. Generally no protection diode is required for values of output capacitance
10 μF.
RAISING THE OUTPUT VOLTAGE ABOVE THE INPUT VOLTAGE
Since the output of the device does not sink current, forcing the output high can cause damage to internal low
current paths in a manner similar to that just described in the “Shorting the Regulator Input” section.
REGULATOR FLOATING GROUND (Figure 22)
When the ground pin alone becomes disconnected, the output approaches the unregulated input, causing
possible damage to other circuits connected to VOUT. If ground is reconnected with power “ON”, damage may
also occur to the regulator. This fault is most likely to occur when plugging in regulators or modules with on card
regulators into powered up sockets. Power should be turned off first, thermal limit ceases operating, or ground
should be connected first if power must be left on.
TRANSIENT VOLTAGES
If transients exceed the maximum rated input voltage of the device, or reach more than 0.8V below ground and
have sufficient energy, they will damage the regulator. The solution is to use a large input capacitor, a series
input breakdown diode, a choke, a transient suppressor or a combination of these.

Figure 23. Transients
When a value for θ(H–A) is found using the equation shown, a heatsink must be selected that has a value that is
less than or equal to this number.
θ(H–A) is specified numerically by the heatsink manufacturer in this catalog, or shown in a curve that plots
temperature rise vs power dissipation for the heatsink.
HEATSINKING DDPAK/TO-263 AND SOT-223 PACKAGE PARTS
Both the DDPAK/TO-263 (KTT) and SOT-223 (DCY) packages use a copper plane on the PCB and the PCB
itself as a heatsink. To optimize the heat sinking ability of the plane and PCB, solder the tab of the plane.
shows for the DDPAK/TO-263 the measured values of θ(J–A) for different copper area sizes using a typical PCB
with 1 ounce copper and no solder mask over the copper area used for heatsinking.
Figure 24. θ(J–A) vs Copper (1 ounce) Area for the DDPAK/TO-263 Package
As shown in the figure, increasing the copper area beyond 1 square inch produces very little improvement. It
should also be observed that the minimum value of θ(J–A) for the DDPAK/TO-263 package mounted to a PCB is
32°C/W.
As a design aid, Figure 25 shows the maximum allowable power dissipation compared to ambient temperature
for the DDPAK/TO-263 device (assuming θ(J–A) is 35°C/W and the maximum junction temperature is 125°C).
