LM2596 regulator example

by iainhendry

This is quite a common power supply, a lot of the simple breadboard power supplies available on Ebay are based on this kind of design.

Many of the parts are common and this can be quite easily designed into a board or you can make a stripboard version. The spec is underneath in the link section, this example should be able to supply about 1a over a voltage range of 3 to 12v.
