Regulator - MC78L05, 5 Volt, Linear Voltage Regulator
MC78L05 5V Linear Regulator. Used in MOD® kits. The TI version is the LM78L05. This fixed-voltage monolithic integrated circuit voltage regulator is suitable for applications that required supply current up to 100 mA.
Regulator - LM317T, Adjustable Output, 1.5A, Linear Voltage Regulator
Linear regulator with an adjustable voltage range from 1.2V to 37V. This regulator can supply 1.5A of current making it a great option for power supplies.
Regulator - 7805, 5 Volt, 1A, Linear Voltage Regulator
5V linear regulator with up to 1 amp of current in a TO-220 package. This style of regulator can be found in many power supplies and also modular synth circuits as well as some stomp boxes. These voltage regulators are monolithic integrated circuits designed as fixed−voltage regulators for a wide variety of applications including local, on−card regulation. These regulators employ internal current limiting, thermal shutdown, and safe−area compensation. With adequate heatsinking they can deliver output currents in excess of 1.0 A. Although designed primarily as a fixed voltage regulator, these devices can be used with external components to obtain adjustable voltages and currents.
Regulator - L78L33, 3.3 Volt, Positive Voltage Regulator, TO-92
L78L33 3.3V regulator in a TO-92 package. The L78L33 three-terminal 3.3V positive regulator employs internal current limiting and thermal shutdown, making them essentially indestructible. If adequate heat-sink is provided, they can deliver up to 100 mA output current. They are intended as fixed voltage regulators in a wide range of applications including local or oncard regulation for elimination of noise and distribution problems associated with single-point regulation. In addition, they can be used with power pass elements to make high-current voltage regulators. The L78L series used as Zener diode/resistor combination replacement, offers e improvement along with lower quiescent current and lower noise. Features:
- Output voltage of 3.3V
- Output current up to 100 mA
- Short-circuit protection
- No external components are required
