The L4946 is a quad output low drop voltage regulator. The four outputs are a low drop 10V at 125mA (VO1), a 8V at 250mA (VO2), a 5V at 200mA (VO3) and a low drop 5V st-by line at 100mA (VO4).
The IC includes a monitoring circuit to warn if a low voltage or no voltage condition is occurring. VO1,2,3 are off during st-by mode.
The STCAP pin allows the battery voltage to decay slowly giving the µP time to store data. This IC is designed for supplying microcomputer controlled systems specially in automotive applications.
