5 Volt Regulator

Picture of 5 Volt Regulator
Hi, this is a simple circuit for a 5 volt regulator with a input voltage from 8 to 12 volts.
just follow the circuit diagram and you"ll be fine.

Step 1: Parts

Picture of parts
The things you need:

1x TS7805 5 volt regulator
2x 1uf capacitor
1x power plug (or other connector)
1x 220 ohm resistor
1x Blue LED (I used a diffused one)
1x Mirco Switch
2x connector

*The LED, switch and two connectors are optional, make it how you want.
*You could even add a cooling van for higher voltages!

Follow the schematics  at the pictures and make sure it works on a breadbord if you have one before soldering it on a PCB.

Step 2: Using the regulator

I use my regulator to power my breadboards!
Very good, just what I was looking for

You will be quite dissapointed if you follow the schematic.

I see what`s wrong, the LED is placed wrong, it must be connected before the regulator :) Or isn't it?

No, it, and it's resistor must go from + plus to - minus, as it does on the upper drawing (which is correct)).

I see what you mean :) i will change it tomorrow, thank!s :)
