A variation of the Standard regulator is the quasi-LDO, which uses an NPN and PNP transistor as the pass device. The dropout voltage for a quasi-LDO delivering rated current is usually specified at about 1.5V(max). The actual dropout voltage is temperature and load current dependent, but could never be expected to go lower than about 0.9V (25°C) at even the lightest load. The dropout voltage for the quasi-LDO is higher than the LDO, but lower than the Standard regulator.
Line regulation refers to the ability of the voltage regulator to reject variations in the applied voltage (often referred to as the line voltage because it is usually derived from the AC power line) and is expressed as a percentage. Ideally, the line regulation would be zero percent meaning that the output voltage is perfectly independent of the line voltage. The equation for line regulation is as follows. Note that line voltage can also mean the DC input voltage for some applications. Line regulation always refers to whatever the input of interest is. Line regulation is expressed in percent and the ideal value is zero meaning that the output voltage is completely independent of the input voltage.
