I got 500 78L05's. Does anybody have a suggestion for an interesting circuit which uses a lot of 78L05's? Or is it not really possible to do anything more interesting than simple voltage and current regulating circuits with them?

    \$\begingroup\$ Design something that uses a single 78L05 -> sell 500 of them -> profit! \$\endgroup\$ – Amoch Jun 3 '13 at 21:57

Best idea is sell it.. You don't need that much linear regulators for any circuit unless you are manufacturing bulk boards..
