typically changes by 3 mV when the input voltage is varied from 7 V to 25 V, and by 5 mV
when the load current is varied from 0.25 A to 0.75 A. Further, the ripple rejection ratio is 78 dB
at 120 Hz.

Thus, a 1-V, 120-Hz ripple at the input will result in an output ripple of 0.126 mV 8 55:041 Electronic Circuits. The University of Iowa. Fall 2011. Problem 5 Briefly explain why semiconductor companies often specify the ripple rejection ratio
of their three-terminal regulators at frequencies in the range 100—120 Hz. In other words, why
is it important to know the ripp...
