Hi, Have an automotive application for 6vdc regulation. Input: 11-18vdc (typical car voltage range) Output: 6vdc @ 1A. max
The catch is, I have a fairly small space to install the regulator and would like a minimum of support components. With those requirements, I'm leaning toward a small DC-DC converter. I've already dismissed the7806 as an option due to its heat dissipation requirements at 1A.
What other devices should I consider?
