230V AC to 1.5V DC PCB for Your Application

The project is about how to convert 240V AC input power to 1.5V DC output power for your application.

A power management integrated circuit (PMIC) is utilized to supply the necessary power to complex electronic circuits. Designing a primary independent circuit with less low-power electronic elements requires a separate independent power source or a voltage regulator circuit. Therefore, This article will guide designing a primary 1.5V DC power supply circuit, constructed with the help of an IC LM317, thus giving a regulated constant power supply of 1.5V DC. Typically, the primary 1.5V DC voltage controller circuit is utilized on any circuit or device that needs a 1.5V DC steady power supply. The 1.5V DC circuit changes 230V AC to 1.5V DC using a stepdown transformer, a voltage controller IC LM317, and a bridge rectifier.
