LM117/LM317A/LM317
3-Terminal Adjustable Regulator
General Description
The LM117 series of adjustable 3-terminal positive voltage
regulators is capable of supplying in excess of 1.5A over a
1.2V to 37V output range. They are exceptionally easy to
use and require only two external resistors to set the output
voltage. Further, both line and load regulation are better than
standard fixed regulators. Also, the LM117 is packaged in
standard transistor packages which are easily mounted and
handled.
In addition to higher performance than fixed regulators, the
LM117 series offers full overload protection available only in
IC’s. Included on the chip are current limit, thermal overload
protection and safe area protection. All overload protection
circuitry remains fully functional even if the adjustment terminal
is disconnected.
Normally, no capacitors are needed unless the device is
situated more than 6 inches from the input filter capacitors in
which case an input bypass is needed. An optional output
capacitor can be added to improve transient response. The
adjustment terminal can be bypassed to achieve very high
ripple rejection ratios which are difficult to achieve with standard
3-terminal regulators.
Besides replacing fixed regulators, the LM117 is useful in a
wide variety of other applications. Since the regulator is
“floating” and sees only the input-to-output differential voltage,
supplies of several hundred volts can be regulated as
long as the maximum input to output differential is not exceeded,
i.e., avoid short-circuiting the output.
Also, it makes an especially simple adjustable switching
regulator, a programmable output regulator, or by connecting
a fixed resistor between the adjustment pin and output, the
LM117 can be used as a precision current regulator. Supplies
with electronic shutdown can be achieved by clamping
the adjustment terminal to ground which programs the output
to 1.2V where most loads draw little current.
For applications requiring greater output current, see LM150
series (3A) and LM138 series (5A) data sheets. For the
negative complement, see LM137 series data sheet.

Note 1: Absolute Maximum Ratings indicate limits beyond which damage to the device may occur. Operating Ratings indicate conditions for which the device is
intended to be functional, but do not guarantee specific performance limits. For guaranteed specifications and test conditions, see the Electrical Characteristics. The
guaranteed specifications apply only for the test conditions listed.
Note 2: Refer to RETS117H drawing for the LM117H, or the RETS117K for the LM117K military specifications.
Note 3: Although power dissipation is internally limited, these specifications are applicable for maximum power dissipations of 2W for the TO-39 and SOT-223 and
20W for the TO-3, TO-220, and TO-263. IMAX is 1.5A for the TO-3, TO-220, and TO-263 packages, 0.5A for the TO-39 package and 1A for the SOT-223 Package.
All limits (i.e., the numbers in the Min. and Max. columns) are guaranteed to National’s AOQL (Average Outgoing Quality Level).
Note 4: Regulation is measured at a constant junction temperature, using pulse testing with a low duty cycle. Changes in output voltage due to heating effects are
covered under the specifications for thermal regulation.
Note 5: Human body model, 100 pF discharged through a 1.5 kΩ resistor.
Note 6: If the TO-263 or TO-252 packages are 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, θJA is 37°C/W; and with 1.6 or more square inches of copper
area, θJA is 32°C/W. If the SOT-223 package is used, the thermal resistance can be reduced by increasing the PC board copper area (see applications hints for
heatsinking).

Application Hints
In operation, the LM117 develops a nominal 1.25V reference
voltage, VREF, between the output and adjustment terminal.
The reference voltage is impressed across program resistor
R1 and, since the voltage is constant, a constant current I1
then flows through the output set resistor R2, giving an
output voltage of
Since the 100μA current from the adjustment terminal represents
an error term, the LM117 was designed to minimize
IADJ and make it very constant with line and load changes.
To do this, all quiescent operating current is returned to the
output establishing a minimum load current requirement. If
there is insufficient load on the output, the output will rise.
EXTERNAL CAPACITORS
An input bypass capacitor is recommended. A 0.1μF disc or
1μF solid tantalum on the input is suitable input bypassing
for almost all applications. The device is more sensitive to
the absence of input bypassing when adjustment or output
capacitors are used but the above values will eliminate the
possibility of problems.
The adjustment terminal can be bypassed to ground on the
LM117 to improve ripple rejection. This bypass capacitor
prevents ripple from being amplified as the output voltage is
increased. With a 10μF bypass capacitor 80dB ripple rejection
is obtainable at any output level. Increases over 10μF do
not appreciably improve the ripple rejection at frequencies
above 120Hz. If the bypass capacitor is used, it is sometimes
necessary to include protection diodes to prevent the
capacitor from discharging through internal low current paths
and damaging the device.
In general, the best type of capacitors to use is solid tantalum.
Solid tantalum capacitors have low impedance even at
high frequencies. Depending upon capacitor construction, it
takes about 25μF in aluminum electrolytic to equal 1μF solid
tantalum at high frequencies. Ceramic capacitors are also
good at high frequencies; but some types have a large
decrease in capacitance at frequencies around 0.5MHz. For
this reason, 0.01μF disc may seem to work better than a
0.1μF disc as a bypass.
Although the LM117 is stable with no output capacitors, like
any feedback circuit, certain values of external capacitance
can cause excessive ringing. This occurs with values between
500 pF and 5000 pF. A 1μF solid tantalum (or 25μF
aluminum electrolytic) on the output swamps this effect and
insures stability. Any increase of the load capacitance larger
than 10μF will merely improve the loop stability and output
impedance.
LOAD REGULATION
The LM117 is capable of providing extremely good load
regulation but a few precautions are needed to obtain maximum
performance. The current set resistor connected between
the adjustment terminal and the output terminal (usually
240Ω) should be tied directly to the output (case) of the
regulator rather than near the load. This eliminates line
drops from appearing effectively in series with the reference
and degrading regulation. For example, a 15V regulator with
0.05Ω resistance between the regulator and load will have a
load regulation due to line resistance of 0.05Ω x IL. If the set
resistor is connected near the load the effective line resistance
will be 0.05Ω (1 + R2/R1) or in this case, 11.5 times
worse.
Figure 2 shows the effect of resistance between the regulator
and 240Ω set resistor.
With the TO-3 package, it is easy to minimize the resistance
from the case to the set resistor, by using two separate leads
to the case. However, with the TO-39 package, care should
be taken to minimize the wire length of the output lead. The
ground of R2 can be returned near the ground of the load to
provide remote ground sensing and improve load regulation.
PROTECTION DIODES
When external capacitors are used with any IC regulator it is
sometimes necessary to add protection diodes to prevent
the capacitors from discharging through low current points
into the regulator. Most 10μF capacitors have low enough
internal series resistance to deliver 20A spikes when
shorted. Although the surge is short, there is enough energy
to damage parts of the IC.
When an output capacitor is connected to a regulator and
the input is shorted, the output capacitor will discharge into
the output of the regulator. The discharge current depends
on the value of the capacitor, the output voltage of the
regulator, and the rate of decrease of VIN. In the LM117, this
discharge path is through a large junction that is able to
sustain 15A surge with no problem. This is not true of other
types of positive regulators. For output capacitors of 25μF or
less, there is no need to use diodes.
The bypass capacitor on the adjustment terminal can discharge
through a low current junction. Discharge occurs

when either the input or output is shorted. Internal to the
LM117 is a 50Ω resistor which limits the peak discharge
current. No protection is needed for output voltages of 25V
or less and 10μF capacitance. Figure 3 shows an LM117
with protection diodes included for use with outputs greater
than 25V and high values of output capacitance.
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 the catalog, or shown in a curve that plots temperature rise
vs power dissipation for the heatsink.
HEATSINKING TO-263, SOT-223 AND TO-252 PACKAGE
PARTS
The TO-263 (“S”), SOT-223 (“MP”) and TO-252 (”DT”) 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 package to the plane.
Figure 4 shows for the 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.
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 TO-263
package mounted to a PCB is 32°C/W.
As a design aid, Figure 5 shows the maximum allowable
power dissipation compared to ambient temperature for the
TO-263 device (assuming θ(J−A) is 35°C/W and the maximum
junction temperature is 125°C).
Figure 6 and Figure 7 show the information for the SOT-223
package. Figure 7 assumes a θ(J−A) of 74°C/W for 1 ounce
copper and 51°C/W for 2 ounce copper and a maximum
junction temperature of 125°C.

Application Hints (Continued)
The LM317 regulators have internal thermal shutdown to
protect the device from over-heating. Under all possible
operating conditions, the junction temperature of the LM317
must be within the range of 0°C to 125°C. A heatsink may be
required depending on the maximum power dissipation and
maximum ambient temperature of the application. To determine
if a heatsink is needed, the power dissipated by the
regulator, PD, must be calculated:
IIN = IL + IG
PD = (VIN − VOUT) IL + VINIG
Figure 8 shows the voltage and currents which are present in
the circuit.
The next parameter which must be calculated is the maximum
allowable temperature rise, TR(max):
TR(max) = TJ(max) − TA(max)
where TJ(max) is the maximum allowable junction temperature
(125°C), and TA(max) is the maximum ambient temperature
which will be encountered in the application.
Using the calculated values for TR(max) and PD, the maximum
allowable value for the junction-to-ambient thermal
resistance (θJA) can be calculated:
θJA = TR(max)/PD
If the maximum allowable value for θJA is found to be
≥92°C/W (Typical Rated Value) for TO-252 package, no
heatsink is needed since the package alone will dissipate
enough heat to satisfy these requirements. If the calculated
value for θJA falls below these limits, a heatsink is required.
As a design aid, Table 1 shows the value of the θJA of
TO-252 for different heatsink area. The copper patterns that
we used to measure these θJAs are shown at the end of the
Application Notes Section. Figure 9 reflects the same test
results as what are in the Table 1
Figure 10 shows the maximum allowable power dissipation
vs. ambient temperature for the TO-252 device. Figure 11
shows the maximum allowable power dissipation vs. copper
area (in2) for the TO-252 device. Please see AN1028 for
power enhancement techniques to be used with SOT-223
and TO-252 packages.
