3V Supply Splitter

Schematic Diagrams      Comments Off on 3V Supply Splitter

Many modern circuits tend to work from a single supply voltage of 3V. But often they need a virtual earth at half the supply voltage for efficient operation. The splitter shown in the diagram bisects the supply voltage with a high-resistance potential divider, R1-R2, and buffers the resulting 1.5 V… Read more »

3 Volts Car Adapter Using LT1074CT

Schematic Diagrams      Comments Off on 3 Volts Car Adapter Using LT1074CT

This circuit is based on a standard LT1074CT switching regulator IC. For sure, Application Note AN35 published by Linear Technology describes the design far more elegantly than the author could in this short article. Interested readers are therefore strongly advised to get a copy of AN35. The schematic shows the… Read more »
