Can someone help me figure out how to get 7.6 volts from a FIXED voltage regulator? I don't want to use an adjustable one. But can I like... take the voltage down from an 8 volt reg. with diodes or something? What should I do?
Hey, thanks Sebi! You always seem to answer people’s questions well. But I'm afraid that I'm new...ish to electronics, so I don't know what values the caps and resistors should be... Do you think you can help me with those please? :lol:Sebi said:You can do this with 7805 or 7806.
Why? Well, if you must know, I'm building an interface that lets me use my PSX Pad as a PC Pad. And allot of people say that you can use 9V; however, the rating on the PSX pad is 7.6V. And I might start selling these from my future website. So I don't want to take any chances. (I.G. Someone's pad(s) blowing up :lol: Disclaimer or no.) So anyway, that's why.nettron1000 said:Why do you need to get the voltage down to 7.6 ?
