LM7805 7805 IC 5V Voltage Regulator IC
Voltage regulators are very common in electronic circuits. They provide a constant output voltage for a varied input voltage. In this case, the 7805 IC is a positive 5V regulator, meaning it provides +5V as output. The name 7805 signifies two meanings, “78” means that it is a positive voltage regulator and “05” means that it provides 5V as output. So our 7805 will provide a +5V output voltage.

The output current of this IC can go up to 1.5A, but the IC suffers from heavy heat loss hence a Heat sink is recommended for projects that consume more current.it has internal current limiting, thermal shut down and safe operating area protection, making it essentially indestructible. Although designed primarily as fixed voltage regulators, these devices can be used with external components to obtain adjustable voltages and currents.
positive voltage regulators are mainly used in Op-Amp and other circuits where a positive supply voltage is needed. In many cases where an Op-Amp is working in dual-mode power supply a positive voltage will be regulated by these 78XX ICs.
The LM7805 is a three-pin IC.
Pin 1 (Input Pin): The Input pin is the pin that accepts the incoming DC voltage, which the voltage regulator will eventually regulate down to 5 volts.
Pin 2 (Ground): Ground pin establishes the ground for the regulator.
Pin 3 (Output Pin): The Output pin is the regulated +5 volts DC.
