One really cool thing about the LM317 is that you can adjust how much voltage it gives out. Just by changing the resistance of one resistor, I could make the voltage exactly right for what my circuit needed.
LM317 is a type of adjustable voltage regulator IC (Integrated Circuit) that is commonly used to provide a stable, regulated output voltage from an input voltage source. It is a versatile and widely-used IC that can be used to regulate a wide range of output voltages, making it a popular choice for many electronic projects.
The LM317 voltage regulator IC is designed to operate over a wide range of input voltages and can provide a regulated output voltage in the range of 1.2V to 37V. It has a number of features that make it easy to use, including built-in current limiting, thermal shutdown protection, and short-circuit protection.
To use an LM317 voltage regulator, users connect the input voltage source to the appropriate connections on the IC and then use external resistors to set the desired output voltage. The LM317 IC will then regulate the output voltage to the desired level, regardless of variations in the input voltage or load.
LM317 voltage regulator ICs are commonly used in a wide range of applications, including power supplies, battery chargers, and other electronic projects that require a stable, regulated output voltage. They are a convenient and easy-to-use solution for providing a regulated voltage in a variety of electronic projects.
