Pololu 5V, 600mA Step-Down Voltage Regulator D24V6F5
- Product Code: 60051
- Availability: In Stock
The compact (0.4″ × 0.5″) D24V6F12 switching step-down (or buck) voltage regulator takes an input voltage between 15 V and 42 V and efficiently reduces it to 5V while allowing for a maximum output current of 600 mA. The pins have a 0.1″ spacing, making this board compatible with standard solderless breadboards and perfboards.
These buck (step-down) voltage regulators generate lower output voltages from input voltages as high as 42 V. They are switching regulators (also called switched-mode power supplies (SMPS) or DC-to-DC converters) and have a typical efficiency between 80% to 90%, which is much more efficient than linear voltage regulators, especially when the difference between the input and output voltage is large.
