Hello everyone! I hope you will absolutely fine and having fun. Today, I am going to give you a detailed discussion on the topic Introduction to 78M05. I have already shared information about different IC’s e.g. Introduction to UA741, MMBD914, LM224, LM386 and LM317. You must have a look at all these tutorials for the better understanding of this article. 78-M05 is basically a three (3) terminal. These terminals include input, output and the common terminal.
78-M05 is commonly available in TO-220 package having different fixed voltages at the output. Its construction process is based on planar epitaxial technology. These regulators are used for the employment of the process of internal limitation of the current. Safe area compensation as well as thermal shutdown are its more important features. 78-M05 is able provide up to 0.5A of current at the output, if the it is provided with the proper heat sinking. It is mostly known in the market on the basis of its fixed voltage regulation’s applications. This shows that 78-M05 can be used with the external components in order to provide the adjustable voltage at the output. It has a lot of features. These features include thermal load internal protection, power molded packages, short circuit internal limitation of current, compatibility with Transistor Transistor Logic (TTL), Complementary Metal Oxide Semiconductor (CMOS) and different digital Integrated Circuits (IC’s), complete protection for short circuiting, protection for thermal overload, Safe Operating Area (SOA) protection, outstanding ripples protection capability and many more. 78-M05 has a larger area for its real life applications including on card regulation, local regulation, it can be used with the external components to provide adjustable voltages at the output. The further detail about 78-M05 and its basic usage, will be provided later in this tutorial.
Introduction to 78M05
78M05 is a voltage regulator having three terminals. These terminal are input, common and the output terminal respectively. It is constructed using planar epitaxial manufacturing process. It is usually available in TO-220 packages. It has different unique features e.g. internal short circuit and thermal overload protection. It has a wide range of real life applications including local as well as on card regulation, current limitation and a lot more. Moreover, we can use it with different external components to achieve adjustable outputs. 78M-05 is given in the figure shown below.
