The reference voltage is impressed across program resistor R1 and. the error associated with this term is negligible in most applications. Since the LM350 is a floating regulator. between the output and adjustment terminal. To do this. 5 .LM350 Typical Application LM350 IN Input ADJ OUT I1 R1 120 CO 1uF Output IADJ CI 0. since the voltage is constant. If there is insufficient load on the output. and operation at high voltage with respect to ground is possible. In operation. all quiescent operating current is returned to the output establishing a minimum load current requirement. it is only the voltage differential across the circuit which is important to performance. a constant current I1 then flows through the output set resistor R2.25V(1+R2/R1) + IADJ R2 Since IADJ current (less than 100μA) from the adjustment terminal represents an error term. the LM350 develops a nominal 1.1uF R2 Figure 13. VREF. the LM350 was designed to minimize IADJ and make it very constant with line and load changes.25V reference voltage. CI : CI is required if the regulator is located an appreciable distance from power supply filter. giving an output voltage of VO = 1. the output voltage will rise. Since IADJ is controlled to less than 100μA. CO: Output capacitors in the range of 1μF to 100μF of aluminum or tantalum electronic are commonly used to provide improved output impedance and rejection of transients.
