Part 5: Voltage stabilisation
In the previous instalment of this course series we looked at circuits for constant-current sources. Now it’s time to examine ways to generate stable voltages. Of course, you can always use an integrated voltage regulator, but there are many other interesting approaches, most of which need only a few (usually discrete) components.
