Since the initial release of the MCP1701 2 A Low Dropout Positive Voltage Regulator, Microchip Technology has been addressing customer requests for device enhancements. The customer requests for the MCP1701 enhancements were higher
output currents, higher input operating voltage, and a reduction in output voltage overshoot at startup. These requests have been implemented in the newly released MCP1702 250 mA Low Quiescent Current LDO Regulator.
