Voltage Regulation, Part 1 of 3

Voltage Regulation


Voltage regulation is a way of adapting a source voltage to a voltage that can be used by the circuit that needs to be powered. The circuit may require 3.3 or 5 VDC, but your power supply delivers 12V. What to do? Luckily there are various ways to lower, or step down, that original 12VDC to a more usable 3.3 or 5 VDC, depending on your circuit’s needs.
