6.3 Recommended Operating Conditionsover operating free-air temperature range (unless otherwise noted)
||Continuous output current(2)
||Operating junction temperature
(1) To calculate the minimum input voltage for your maximum output current, use the following formula:
VIN(min) = VOUT(max) + dropout voltage (VDO) at maximum load.
(2) Continuous output current and operating junction temperature are limited by internal protection circuitry, but the device is not recommended to be operated under conditions beyond those specified in this table for extended periods of time.
