Noise

How does SPX noise compare with other voltage regulators? See the noise spectra below and judge for yourself. All devices were tested with the same input supply, gain of 1000  measurement amplifier, and spectrum analyzer. All were measured as the AC component of 12VDC output, with no load. The vertical scale of all spectra was lowered by 60dB to adjust for the 1000x gain.

Baseline Test System Noise

Noise test baseline noise measurement

This is the noise level of the test setup with input grounded. Spectrum is captured from a Handyscope HS3 from Tiepie Engineering. How low can you go? The small spike is power line noise leaking through at 60Hz, -155dBVpk.
