LM2596

The LM2596 is a commonly used popular step-down switching regulator IC. The adjustable version can take in input voltage from 4.5V to 40V and convert it to variable voltage sourcing upto of 3A of continues current. Because of its high current capability is commonly used in power modules to power/control heavy loads.
