The methods used in switching power supplies is to turn theI need to convert a 24V source to 5V / 1.0 A max output. I tried using
a 7805 but it generates alot of heat. Is there a way of gettinh 5V
without the excessive heat generation? Thx!
full 24 volts on for 5/24ths of the time at some high rate,
and low pass filter the resulting pulse stream with a low
loss LC filter so that the 5 volt average appears at the output.
You can buy all this prepackaged, or roll your own.
