The module described herein is useful for voltage regulation applications of the type required in electronic system power supplies, and is packageable in high density LSI chips requiring low voltage inputs and incorporates the following techniques to minimize its size and maximize its function: 1. Merging OV-UV (Over Voltage-Under Voltage) and short circuit detection I/O pins with the negative feedback terminal of the linear amplifiers 1. 2. Utilizing a common reference for regulation and OV-UV detection 2. 3. Utilizing low voltage technology for maximum density and lowest cost. 4. Utilizing a different scheme for OV-UV detection which minimizes device count 3. See the preceding article. 5.
