I need to deal with a peak load at 5VDC and about 11.25A but I'm not sure how to manage this. I have 5 individual loads of 2.25A and small loads from an MCU and some LEDs all of which should fit into ...
I find it somewhat dangerous to connect a large heat sink on 79xx series voltage regulators. Because they transfer all the negative voltage to the heat sink. Why just they didn't make the 2nd pin of ...
I've designed a simple PWM RGB LED slow fader to be used as a garden lighting effect. My circuit works great, but I under-estimated the amount of heat that is generated by the 7805 linear regulator. ...
I want to use a linear regulator for some application, it's in a SOT-223 (not SOT-89) package. How do I keep it cool, preferably without a bulky heatsink? The regulator may be dissipating 2-3W of ...
I have a project where my power supplies are giving me a bit of a headache. I have three voltage regulators that I am trying to run from a single bench power supply. There are two 3.3V regulators, and ...
