This video covers the basics of linear voltage regulators – what they do, how to wire them up, and where to find them. Then I give a basic example of how to build a 5V supply that can be used to power USB powered gadgets.

  1. The new technologi regulator MINMAX M78AR-1 series is a new range of switching regulators designed as a drop-in replacement for old LM78xx linear regulators with low efficiency.
    The regulators come in a package which fits in the standard TO-220 footprint of linear regulators.
    The high efficiency and low stand-by power consumption of these switching regulators offer the designer a new, cost-efficient solution for many applications.
