New products: D36V28Fx Step-Down Voltage Regulators
I am happy to announce the release of our newest regulators, the D36V28Fx family of step-down voltage regulators. These regulators support a wide input voltage range (up to 50 V!) and can deliver up to 4 A, making them well suited for use with power-hungry processors like the Raspberry Pi and projects involving servos or small motors.

The family consists of six fixed output voltage versions between 3.3 V and 12 V:
- D36V28F3: Fixed 3.3V output
- D36V28F5: Fixed 5V output
- D36V28F6: Fixed 6V output
- D36V28F7: Fixed 7.5V output
- D36V28F9: Fixed 9V output
- D36V28F12: Fixed 12V output
And since we make these ourselves here in Las Vegas, we can also quickly make versions with custom output voltages; please contact us us for more information.
Comparison to the D24V22Fx step-down regulator family
The D36V28Fx family now becomes our recommended alternative to the slightly smaller D24V22Fx if you need a little more power or operation above 36 V:

The D24V22Fx still outperforms the D36V28Fx when it comes to dropout voltage and quiescent current:
