The Great Search: TPS73101 Ultra-Low Dropout Adjustable Regulator Alternative #TheGreatSearch #DigiKey @DigiKey
We just got an update notice of a crowdfunding campaign that is struggling with how to find an alternative for their specified regulator, the TI TPS73101. We thought we’d take a look (video) at what alternatives we could find – in case other folks are having regulator-sourcing issues! (This part may not actually be a drop in alternative for this project, we’re just using it as inspiration!)
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
