TL431 circuit Adjustable Shunt (zener) Regulator

TL431 is the simplest regulator. This is the Shunt Regulator circuit using TL431 —voltage Reference – Shunt Voltage Reference IC.

They are easy to use, comprises one IC, three resistors, four capacitors.

If you like to use Zener diode for the voltage reference, it very cheap but low quality than the IC.

In the circuit…

the output is 5 volt 15mA, if you other voltage can change R2, R2.
The C1, C2, C3 use for filter the volt, low noise ripple.

Adjustable Regulator circuit using TL431

This is simple Adjustable voltage regulator power supply circuit, at use integrated number circuit TL431. By from the circuit can fine volt 3V – 30V, depend on feed volt supply input and change the value R2 , R1. It follow a formula calculates Vout = (1+R1/R2), Vref = 3V-30V , but this circuit gives current get not tall 100mA only. It just if want to enhance current , must use the transistor helps to enlarge current, such as 2N3055, TIP41 numbers or the other.

Voltage detector circuit using TL431

This be simple check pressure level circuit, with integrated number circuit TL431. When use power supply 5Volt in digital circuit. The general feeding signal input be high class logic be High, make have voltage way output be 5 Volt. But enough feed the level logic be Low as a result, make output level voltage be 1.8V this circuit uses the equipment a little 2 pcs. only just as a result can be usable already.

    the formula IS NOT Vout = (1+R1/R2)!!!!! with the circuit as drawn above!

  2. When I initially left a comment I seem to have clicked the -Notify me when new comments are added- checkbox and now whenever a
