I am a hobbyist and I'm trying to make a power supply that withstands a few amps load, that also has a slow turn-on and low ripple. I'm powering up an ESP32-Cam that's pretty sensitive to ripple and voltage drops, so after scavenging the internet for circuits and some documentation, this is what I came up with:
Is this schematic going to work?
C2, C4 and C8 are tantalum caps, would that help with ripple?
Are the transistors properly wired?
I have seen some schematics with and without low 0.1ohm resistors coming out from the emitter
What is the reason of those resistors?
Should I add them?
I don't have proper knowledge on electronics, so any help or guidance would be highly appreciated! Thanks!
