LM338 pinout | Introduction | Configuration | Features | Packages | Advantages | Application

As we know that there are available in various forms of 555 timers, single logic gates, microcontroller, microprocessor, voltage regulator and op-amps like different ICs IC  LM741, LM324 IC, LM339 IC, LM358, and many more ICs are available. Here we have to learn or introduce about  IC LM358 because it has low power and easy to use dual channel op-amp IC. This IC is designed especially to operate from a single power supply over a wide range of voltages. It is a good, standard operational amplifier and the most important point for this IC is suitable for your needs. LM358 IC is available in a small size as a chip. This IC is the most commonly used device due to its cost-efficiency. Let us have a deep insight into the introduction, pinout, configuration, features, packages, advantages, applications of LM358.

Introduction to LM338 Pinout:

LM338 is the adjustable DC power supply circuit, 1.2 V to 30 V. It ca e provide a current maximum to 5A ad 10 A. If you have used LM317 or LM350. There is similar and so easy to use with a few components. ut LM338 has a higher current than LM317.

Pin out LM338:

The LM338 are adjustable 3 terminal positive voltage regulators capable of supplying in excess of 5A over 1.2V to 32V output range.

They are exceptionally easy to use ad require only 2 resistors to set the output voltage.

The careful circuit design has resulted in outstanding load and line regulation comparable to many commercial power supplies. 

Features of LM338:

  • 5A output current.
  • 7A maximum output current.
  • Adjustable output 1.2V to 37V.
  • Line regulation typically 0.1%.
  • Thermal regulation.
  • Line regulation typically 0.005%/V.
  • The current limit is constant with temperature.
  • P+ product enhancement tested.
  • Output in short circuit protected.
  • The current limit is constant with temperature.
  • Adjustable power supply
  • Constant current regulator
  • Battery charger
