P-QLT1054 Regulator - LT1054, Voltage Converter w/ Regulator, 8-Pin DIP
LT1054 switched-capacitor voltage converter with regulator in an 8 pin DIP package. The LT1054 device is a bipolar, switched-capacitor voltage converter with regulator. It provides higher output current and significantly lower voltage losses than previously available converters. An adaptive-switch drive scheme optimizes efficiency over a wide range of output currents. Total voltage drop at 100-mA output current typically is 1.1 V. This applies to the full supply-voltage range of 3.5 V to 15 V. Quiescent current typically is 2.5 mA. The LT1054 also provides regulation, a feature previously not available in switched-capacitor voltage converters. By adding an external resistive divider, a regulated output can be obtained. This output is regulated against changes in both input voltage and output current. The LT1054 can also shut down by grounding the feedback terminal.

P-Q-AS394H Transistor - AS394H, Matched Pair, Alfa, TO5-8 case, NPN
The AS394H is a junction isolated ultra well-matched monolithic NPN transistor pair with an order of magnitude improvement in matching over conventional transistor pairs. Electrical characteristics of these devices such as drift versus initial offset voltage, noise, and the exponential relationship of base-emitter voltage to collector current closely approach those of a theoretical transistor. Extrinsic base and emitter resistances are very low, giving very low noise and operating over a wide current range. To guarantee long term stability of matching parameters, internal clamp diodes have been added across the emitter-base junction of each transistor. These prevent degradation due to reverse biased emitter current, the most common cause of field failures in matched devices.
