How to Measure LDO Noise
Low-dropout regulators (LDOs) are used to regulate a higher input voltage down to a lower output voltage. Unlike switching regulators, LDOs are easy to implement and do not create high levels of switching noise. Many applications use a switching regulator to efficiently convert one voltage to another, and then use an LDO to filter and clean up the voltage before it goes to the actual load device.
