5V 1.5A Linear Voltage Regulator – 7805 TO-220

Ah the venerable 7805, who amongst us has not used this popular linear regulator? This big chunky regulator will help you get your 7-35V battery or wall adapter down to a nice clean 5.0V with 2% regulation. Perfect for just about all electronics! This is the TO-220 version, with up to 1.5A current capability, and has internal current limiting + thermal shut-down protection which makes it sturdy and pretty much indestructible – at least electronics-wise (we’re pretty sure a hammer might work…)

This regulator has a ~2V linear drop-out. That means you must give it at least 7V to get a clean 5V out. There is a constant ‘quiescent’ current draw of 6mA.

This regulator can provide up to 1.5A as long as it has proper heat-sinking. The higher your input voltage and output current, the more heat it will generate. Without an extra heatsink, you can burn off up to 2W. We like this calculator for determining your heat sink requirements It’s a TO-220 package, so use 62.5°C/Watt junction thermal resistance. The wattage of your set up is = (InputVoltage – 5V) * AverageCurrentInAmps. E.g. a 9V battery and 1 Amp of average output current means the regulator is burning off (9 – 5)*1 = 4 Watts! This setup would definately need a heat sink!

This regulator does not require capacitors for stability, but we recommend at least 10uF electrolytic capacitors on both input and output.

3.3V 800mA Linear Voltage Regulator – LD1117-3.3 TO-220

Ah the esteemed LD1117, who amongst us has not used this popular low drop voltage regulator? This big chunky regulator will help you get your 4-15V battery or wall adapter down to a nice clean 3.3V with 1% regulation. Perfect for just about all electronics! This is the TO-220 version, with up to 800mA current capability, and has internal current limiting + thermal shut-down protection which makes it sturdy and pretty much indestructible – at least electronics-wise (we’re pretty sure a hammer might work…)

This regulator has a ~1V linear drop-out, better than the 780X series’ 2V. That means you must give it at least 4.3V to get a clean 3.3V out. This regulator is often used to get a 5V power supply to a a clean 3.3V. There is a constant ‘quiescent’ current draw of 5mA.

This regulator can provide up to 800 mA as long as it has proper heat-sinking. The higher your input voltage and output current, the more heat it will generate. Without an extra heatsink, you can burn off up to 2W. We like this calculator for determining your heat sink requirements It’s a TO-220 package, so use 62.5°C/Watt junction thermal resistance. The wattage of your set up is = (InputVoltage – 3.3V) * AverageCurrentInAmps. E.g. a 9V power plug and 0.5 Amp of average output current means the regulator is burning off (9 – 3.3)*0.5 = 2.85 Watts! This setup would need a heat sink. Or you could use a 5V power supply for (5-3.3)*0.5 = 0.85W which would not require a heatsink.

This regulator requires at least 10uF electrolytic capacitors on both input and output for stability

3.3V 250mA Linear Voltage Regulator – L4931-3.3 TO-92

Need a nice little 3.3V regulator? We rather like the very-low-dropout L4931 from ST! This little guy will help you get your 4-20V battery or wall adapter down to a nice clean 3.3V with 2% regulation. Perfect for just about all electronics! This is a TO-92 package version, with up to 250mA current capability, and has internal current limiting + thermal shut-down protection which makes it sturdy and pretty much indestructible – at least electronics-wise (we’re pretty sure a hammer might work…)

This regulator has a very low 0.4V linear drop-out, way better than the 780X series’ 2V. That means you must give it at least 3.7V to get a clean 3.3V out. This regulator is often used to get a 5V power supply or Lithium polymer/ion battery to a a clean 3.3V. There is a constant ‘quiescent’ current draw of 1mA (which increases up to 5mA as you draw 250mA) so it’s good for portable and battery-powered projects

NewImage

This regulator can provide up to 250 mA peak as long as you do not overheat the package. The higher your input voltage and output current, the more heat it will generate. Without an extra heatsink, you can burn off up to 0.6W. We like this calculator for determining your heat sink requirements It’s a TO-92 package, so use 200°C/Watt junction-to-air thermal resistance. The wattage of your set up is = (InputVoltage – 3.3V) * AverageCurrentInAmps. E.g. a 9V battery and 0.2 Amp of average output current means the regulator is burning off (9 – 3.3)*0.2 = 1.14 Watts! That’s way too much for the little package, it will overheat. Instead, reduce your average current to 0.1A (for 0.57W) or you could use a 5V power supply for (5-3.3)*0.2 = 0.34W, both of which would not require a heatsink.

This regulator requires at least 2,2uF electrolytic capacitors on both input and output for stability, 10uF will do the joy nicely.
