This is my first instructable, so i hope i help you. I am from slovak, so i don´t speak English very well so i sometimes use Google Translate. Sorry for errors...
Step 1: Parts What We Needed:
For this stabilizer we needed:
-200uF/25V electrolytic cap.
-10nF disk cap.
12V or 9V battery or Lab. Power Supply (for test)
So lets build it!
Step 2: 1st Filter - an 220uF Capacitor
- Place the 220uF cap anywhere on breadboard.
- Connect wire from negative side of cap to the ground rail. Negative side is usually marked with strip other color.
- Connect another wire from positive side of cap to the power rail.
Step 3: The 7805, 0.01uF Cap and Output ► Finishing With Building!
- Place 7805 somewhere on board. Must be minimal 3 rows from 220u cap
- Insert 10nF ( 0.01uF ) cap. One leg is connected to 3rd pin of 7805 and another to empty row.
- Add wire from 1st pin of 7805 to power rail.
- Add another wire from middle pin (2nd) to ground rail.
- Add wire from second 0.01uF cap leg to the ground rail.
- Place wire to ground rail. Left it unconnected. This make output ground. Place last wire to the 3rd pin of 7805 and left it in air unconnected too. This is 5V stabilized output.
Step 4: Testing and END
As you can see from first image, i use my laborytory DC power supply. Make the output from supply 12V and...
Connect probes from pwr supply to our stabilizer and...
ITS GIVING US 5VOLTS!!! (my multimeter is made in china...)
OK so thats all. This Instructable is short because its so simple. Later i try to make another with changable output and supplying from main voltage.
This is made for my web. Sorry, i can post link but all page is in Slovak...
I hope this is useful for you. If you asking me In what sh!t i use this?
Reason is simple - Arduino, MCU, CMOS, TTL and list of another...
So thats all, try it if you want it and keep calm while building!
