What is a variable-output 3-terminal regulator?

Latest Updated:12/01/2006

Question:

What is a variable-output 3-terminal regulator?

Answer:

This is a regulator whose output voltage can be changed according to the value of an externally attached resistor. A variable-output 3-terminal regulator is used when a voltage is required that cannot be obtained from a fixed-output 3-terminal regulator. The output voltage of a variable-output 3-terminal regulator can be very finely adjusted, making this regulator very useful when a precise voltage is required.
