Brief Description on NTE960

Voltage regulators are very common in electronic circuits. They provide a constant output voltage for a varied input voltage. The most commonly used Voltage Regulator is the LM7805 to get a constant regulated voltage of +5V. The NTE960 acts as a dire ct replacement for the LM7805 IC. But the NTE960 can provide only less current than the 7805.

The output current of this IC can go up to 1A. But, the IC suffers from heavy heat loss hence a Heat sink is recommended for projects that consume more current. It has a load regulation of 100mV and laso has in built thermal short circuit protection.


7805 Applications

  • Constant +5V output regulator to power microcontrollers and sensors in most of the projects
  • On-card regulation circuit
  • Current Limiter for certain applications
  • Power supply circuits
  • Output Polarity-Reversal-Protection Circuit
