Question: What are the terminals on a voltage regulator?

As the name suggests, three terminal voltage regulators have three terminals namely input which is unregulated (Vin), regulated output (Vo) and common or a ground terminal. These regulators do not require any feedback connections. Figure shows the basic the 3 terminal voltage regulator.

What are the pins on a voltage regulator?

They have three connection pins, an input, a common GND, and an output pin. Voltage regulator modules are also available commercially. Different Packaging for the 7805 IC family. An STMicroelectronics LM7805 gives +5 V voltage across the output and GND terminal while TIs LM7912 gives -12 V output.

Which is the 3 terminal negative voltage regulator IC?

IC 79xx is a three-pin negative voltage controller IC. It is a small integrated circuit used in a circuit to supply a constant negative input voltage.

Which is the 3 terminal adjustable output voltage regulator?

LM317T The LM317T is an adjustable 3-terminal positive voltage regulator capable of supplying different DC voltage outputs other than the fixed voltage power supply of +5 or +12 volts, or as a variable output voltage from a few volts up to some maximum value all with currents of about 1.5 amperes.

How many terminals are there in voltage regulator?

three terminals As the name suggests, three terminal voltage regulators have three terminals namely input which is unregulated (Vin), regulated output (Vo) and common or a ground terminal. These regulators do not require any feedback connections. Figure shows the basic the 3 terminal voltage regulator.

What are the three terminals of a fixed voltage regulator?

As the name suggests, three terminal voltage regulators have three terminals namely input which is unregulated (Vin), regulated output (Vo) and common or a ground terminal. These regulators do not require any feedback connections. Figure shows the basic the 3 terminal voltage regulator.

Is an example for fixed negative voltage regulator?

Examples. 7805 voltage regulator IC produces a DC voltage of +5 volts.

What are the characteristics of adjustable voltage regulator?

An adjustable voltage regulator produces a DC output voltage, which can be adjusted to any other value of certain voltage range. Hence, adjustable voltage regulator is also called as a variable voltage regulator. The DC output voltage value of an adjustable voltage regulator can be either positive or negative.

What is a positive voltage regulator?

The 78xx line are positive voltage regulators: they produce a voltage that is positive relative to a common ground. 78xx and 79xx ICs can be used in combination to provide positive and negative supply voltages in the same circuit.
