Switching Regulator 0.5-1A

MINMAX offers a new range of 0.5A switching regulators as a direct drop-in replacement for the old famous LM78xx linear regulators. The M78A series comes in a SIP package which fits in the standard TO-220 footprint of linear regulators. With the M78SA series there is also a SMD package version available with remote on/off and output trim function. The very high efficiency of the step-down converters allows operating temperatures up to +80°C at full load without need of any heatsink and derating.
