around 50mA is fine. The amount of current doesnt really matter for now. Just trying to get the right components and layout etc.. I'll adjust it afterwards.. Thanks so much for your help!

There is very little point using a buck converter at these very low currents. The simplest method is linear regs like the 7805 and its derivatives. Total device dissipation will be around 0.5W

Just google voltage regulator circuit and there are hundreds of circuit diagrams.

LM317, LM7805, AMS1117 5.0, and AMS1117 3.3, ICs are all 1 amp regulators, LM317 is adjustable from 35 volts down to 1.5, LM7805 is 5 volts, AMS1117 5.0 is 5 volts, and AMS1117 3.3 is a 3.3 volt regulator IC.

i agree with Steve

https://www.electronics-tutorials.ws/blog/variable...

will show you how to use the LM317 regulator. Use 2 and derive both voltages.

The current level affects greatly the choice of components (and the circuit to be used !)

ive decided on 5A

I can increase the current to 5A. That being said, i dont mind seperating the outputs. Means having two different circuits.

Yes like Steve said What current, (Amps)?
