What's the difference between the D24V25F5 and the D24V22F5?


#1

As per the title! The V22 mentions “reverse voltage protection”, but is cheaper, so I’m not sure why both would be stocked, unless it’s for legacy reasons? I can’t see anything that explains the difference…


thanks,

Hello, Danny.

The D24V22Fx regulators use a newer design that costs us less to manufacture. If you are trying to decide between the two versions (D24V25F5 and D24V22F5), I recommend using the D24V22F5, which is generally functionally equivalent to the D24V25Fx family of regulators, but has a lower dropout voltage and an additional power good pin.

Please let me know if you have any additional questions.
