What's a good way to reduce the output from a 9V battery to the 1.8V to 5V required by an ATmega328 controller? The context is a small robotics platform with low power requirements (very slow movement).
I would use a 7805 to get 5 volts simple circuit. Here is a image:
idea: please make sure that caps are ceramic/polymer caps. The ceramic caps only have low ESR value. specially the right hand one.Tweet
