Circuit Project: Solar Panel Voltage Regulator

Schematic Diagrams      Comments Off on Circuit Project: Solar Panel Voltage Regulator

Our energy-hungry and environmentally aware society has been slow to make good use of the sun’s “free” power. But now it’s finally taking off. Using the sun’s heat directly, for cooking and other applications, is already a common and popular technology in countries that have good weather. Hot-water panels are… Read more »

Battery Switch With Low-Dropout Regulator

Schematic Diagrams      Comments Off on Battery Switch With Low-Dropout Regulator

In the form of the LT1579 Linear Technology (http://www.linear-tech.com) has produced a practical battery switch with an integrated low-dropout regulator. In contrast to previous devices no diodes are required. The circuit is available in a 3.3 V version (LT1579CS8-3.3) and in a 5 V version (LT1579CS8-5), both in SO8 SMD… Read more »

The Analog Devices ACP3610 is a voltage doubler that works with a switched-capacitor converter, using the push-pull principle. The switching frequency at the output is approximately 550 kHz. The term ‘push-pull’ refers to the two charge pumps, which work in parallel but in opposite directions in order to deliver the… Read more »
