3 Description
The LM338-MIL series of adjustable 3-terminal
positive voltage regulators is capable of supplying in
excess of 5 A over a 1.2-V to 32-V output range.
They are exceptionally easy to use and require only 2
resistors to set the output voltage. Careful circuit
design has resulted in outstanding load and line
regulation, comparable to many commercial power
supplies. The LM338-MIL family is supplied in a
standard 3-lead transistor package.
A unique feature of the LM338-MIL family is timedependent current limiting. The current limit circuitry
allows peak currents of up to 12 A to be drawn from
the regulator for short periods of time. This allows the
LM338-MIL to be used with heavy transient loads and
speeds start-up under full-load conditions. Under
sustained loading conditions, the current limit
decreases to a safe value protecting the regulator.
Also included on the chip are thermal overload
protection and safe area protection for the power
transistor. Overload protection remains functional
even if the adjustment (ADJ) pin is accidentally
disconnected.
Besides replacing fixed regulators or discrete
designs, the LM338-MIL is useful in a wide variety of
other applications. Because the regulator is floating
and receives 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; do not short-circuit output
to ground. The part numbers in the LM338-MIL series
which have a K suffix are packaged in a standard
steel TO-CAN package, while those with a T suffix
are packaged in a TO-220 plastic package. The
LM338-MIL is rated for TJ = –55°C to 150°C, and the
LM338-MIL is rated for TJ = 0°C to 125°C.

Typical Application Circuit
TI DEVICE
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 output capacitor can be added to improve
transient response, while bypassing the adjustment
pin increases the ripple rejection of the regulator.

7 Detailed Description
7.1 Overview
The LM338 device is an adjustable, three-terminal, positive-voltage regulator capable of supplying more than 5 A
over an output-voltage range of 1.2 V to 32 V. It requires only two external resistors to set the output voltage.
The device feature a typical line regulation of 0.005% and typical load regulation of 0.1%. It includes timedependent current limiting, thermal overload protection, and safe operating area protection. Overload protection
remains functional even if the ADJUST terminal is disconnected.
The LM338 device is versatile in its applications, including uses in programmable output regulation and local oncard regulation. Or, by connecting a fixed resistor between the ADJUST and OUTPUT terminals, the LM338
device can function as a precision current regulators. An optional output capacitor can be added to improve
transient response. The ADJUST terminal can be bypassed to achieve very high ripple-rejection ratios, which are
difficult to achieve with standard three-terminal regulators.
7.2 Functional Block Diagram
7.3 Feature Description
7.3.1 NPN Darlington Output Drive
NPN Darlington output topology provides naturally low output impedance and an output capacitor is optional. To
support maximum current and lowest temperature, 3-V headroom is recommended (VI – VO).
7.3.2 Overload Block
Overcurrent and overtemperature shutdown protects the device against overload or damage from operating in
excessive heat.
7.3.3 Programmable Feedback
Op amp with 1.25-V offset input at the ADJUST terminal provides easy output voltage or current (not both)
programming. For current regulation applications, a single resistor whose resistance value is 1.25 V/IO and
power rating is greater than 1.25 V2/R must be used. For voltage regulation applications, two resistors set the
output voltage.

7.4 Device Functional Modes
7.4.1 Normal Operation
The device OUTPUT pin sources current necessary to make OUTPUT pin 1.25 V greater than ADJUST terminal
to provide output regulation.
7.4.2 Operation With Low Input Voltage
The device requires up to 3-V headroom (VI – VO) to operate in regulation. With less headroom, the device may
drop out and OUTPUT voltage is INPUT voltage minus drop out voltage.
7.4.3 Operation at Light Loads
The device passes its bias current to the OUTPUT pin. The load or feedback must consume this minimum
current for regulation or the output may be too high. A 250-Ω feedback resistor between OUTPUT and ADJUST
consumes the worst case minimum load current of 5 mA.
7.4.4 Operation in Self Protection
When an overload occurs, the device shuts down Darlington NPN output stage or reduces the output current to
prevent device damage. The device automatically resets from the overload. The output may be reduced or
alternate between on and off until the overload is removed.

8 Application and Implementation
NOTE
Information in the following applications sections is not part of the TI component
specification, and TI does not warrant its accuracy or completeness. TI’s customers are
responsible for determining suitability of components for their purposes. Customers should
validate and test their design implementation to confirm system functionality.
8.1 Application Information
In operation, the LM338-MIL develops a nominal 1.25-V 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 calculated
with Equation 1.

Figure 15. Typical Application Circuit
Because the 50-µA current from the adjustment terminal represents an error term, the LM338-MIL 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 rises.

8.2 Typical Applications
8.2.1 Constant 5-V Regulator
TI DEVICE
Copyright © 2016, Texas Instruments Incorporated
Figure 16. Constant 5-V Regulator
8.2.1.1 Design Requirements
R1: Because the LM338-MIL produces a typical 1.24 V potential between the OUTPUT and ADJUST pins,
placing a 270-Ω resistor between them causes 4.6 mA to flow through R1 and R2.
R2: To achieve a 5-V output, the sum of the voltages across R1 and R2 must equal 5 V. Therefore, Vr2 must
equal 3.76 V when 4.6 mA is flowing through it. R2 = Vr2 / I = 3.76 V / 4.6 mA = ~820 Ω.
CIN: 0.1 µF of input capacitance helps filter out unwanted noise, especially if the regulator is located far from the
power supply filter capacitors.
COUT: The regulator is stable without any output capacitance, but adding a 1-µF capacitor improves the transient
response.
CADJ: A 10-µF capacitor bypassing the ADJUST pin to ground improves the regulators ripple rejection.
D1: Protection diode D1 is recommended if COUT is used. The diode provides a low-impedance discharge path to
prevent the capacitor from discharging into the output of the regulator (see Protection Diodes).
D2: Protection diode D2 is recommended if CADJ is used. The diode provides a low-impedance discharge path to
prevent the capacitor from discharging into the output of the regulator (see Protection Diodes).
Table 1 lists the design parameters for this typical application.

8.2.1.2 Detailed Design Procedure
8.2.1.2.1 External Capacitors
An input bypass capacitor is recommended. A 0.1-µF disc or 1-µF 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 eliminate the possibility of problems.
The adjustment terminal can be bypassed to ground on the LM338-MIL to improve ripple rejection. This bypass
capacitor prevents ripple from being amplified as the output voltage is increased. With a 10-µF bypass capacitor,
75-dB ripple rejection is obtainable at any output level. Increases over 20 µF do not appreciably improve the
ripple rejection at frequencies above 120 Hz. 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 are solid tantalum. Solid tantalum capacitors have low impedance
even at high frequencies. Depending upon capacitor construction, it takes about 25 µF in aluminum electrolytic to
equal 1-µF 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 0.5 MHz. For this reason, 0.01-µF disc may
seem to work better than a 0.1-µF disc as a bypass.
Although the LM338-MIL 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 1-µF solid
tantalum (or 25-µF aluminum electrolytic) on the output swamps this effect and insures stability.
8.2.1.2.2 Load Regulation
The LM338-MIL 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 240 Ω) must be tied directly to the output of the regulator (case) rather than near the
load. This eliminates line drops from appearing effectively in series with the reference and degrading regulation.
For example, a 15-V regulator with 0.05-Ω resistance between the regulator and load has a load regulation due
to line resistance of 0.05 Ω × IL. If the set resistor is connected near the load, the effective line resistance is 0.05
Ω (1 + R2/R1) or in this case, 11.5 times worse.
Figure 17 shows the effect of resistance between the regulator and 240-Ω set resistor.

Figure 17. Regulator With Line Resistance in Output Lead
With the TO-3 package, it is easy to minimize the resistance from the case to the set resistor, by using 2
separate leads to the case. The ground of R2 can be returned near the ground of the load to provide remote
ground sensing and improve load regulation.
8.2.1.2.3 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 20-µF capacitors have
low enough internal series resistance to deliver 20-A 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 discharges
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 LM338-MIL this discharge path is through a large junction
that is able to sustain 25-A surge with no problem. This is not true of other types of positive regulators. For
output capacitors of 100 µF or less at output of 15 V 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 LM338-MIL is a 50-Ω resistor which limits the peak
discharge current. No protection is needed for output voltages of 25-V or less and 10-µF capacitance. Figure 18
shows an LM338-MIL with protection diodes included for use with outputs greater than 25 V and high values of
output capacitance.

9 Power Supply Recommendations
The input supply to LM338 must be kept at a voltage level such that its maximum input to output differential
voltage rating is not exceeded. The minimum dropout voltage must also be met with extra headroom when
possible to keep the LM338 in regulation. TI recommends a capacitor be placed at the input to bypass noise.

10 Layout
10.1 Layout Guidelines
Some layout guidelines must be followed to ensure proper regulation of the output voltage with minimum noise.
Traces carrying the load current must be wide to reduce the amount of parasitic trace inductance and the
feedback loop from VOUT to ADJ must be kept as short as possible. To improve PSRR, a bypass capacitor can
be placed at the ADJ pin and must be placed as close as possible to the IC. In cases when VIN shorts to ground,
an external diode must be placed from VOUT to VIN to divert the surge current from the output capacitor and
protect the IC. Similarly, in cases when a large bypass capacitor is placed at the ADJ pin and VOUT shorts to
ground, an external diode must be placed from ADJ to VOUT to provide a path for the bypass capacitor to
discharge. These diodes must be placed close to the corresponding IC pins to increase their effectiveness.
