Question, as fast as possible: Would this circuit regulate poorly-regulated +12VDC effectively?
I am an electronics level zero, so please bear with me. Please let me know if you would me to clarify anything.
I'm trying to design this smart lighting system and I need a power source. Unfortunately, due to the wire run lengths, I can not rely on receiving well-regulated +3.3v directly, especially at high currents.
I want to keep the device as small and low-profile as possible, limiting my options.
I designed this circuit to regulate voltage effectively. Would this work?
I am alright with up to 0.2v of ripple. All resisters are 1k ohms, and the capacitor is 100uF.
Also, if I messed up something which would make this circuit blow up, please let me know. This one of the first circuits I've designed from scratch.
