A new page has been created in the lessons section, talking in depth about the ubiquitous linear regulator.
If you wish to jump right in, the page can be reached at https://idyl.io/electronics/power/linear-regulator/
You will learn:
- How linear regulators are built
- How to take in consideration the “drop out” value of your regulator
- Power dissipation concerns and how to calculate how hot the regulator will run
I have spent a lot of time doing research to cover all aspects of linear regulation; and I hope you’ll be enjoying reading this page!
