- The LM7809 voltage regulator provides 9V Positive voltage as output and can provide local on-card regulation, eliminating the distribution problems associated with single-point regulation.
- Internal short-circuit current limiting, Output current up to 1.5 A, High power-dissipation capability, Output current up to 1.5 A
7809 is a voltage regulator integrated circuit. It is a member of the 78xx series of fixed linear voltage regulator ics. The voltage source in a circuit may have fluctuations and would not give the fixed voltage output. The voltage regulator ic maintains the output voltage at a constant value. The xx in 78xx indicates the fixed output voltage it is designed to provide. 7809 provides a +9v regulated power supply. Capacitors of suitable values can be connected at input and output pins depending upon the respective voltage levels. ST7805 Positive Voltage Regulator IC is very useful for making DC regulated power supply. Each ST7805 IC is 100% tested before shipment to ensure guaranteed functional performance.
