What is a switching regulator?
The DE-SW0XX family of switch mode voltage regulators are designed to be the easiest possible way to add the benefits of switch-mode power to a new or existing project. A DE-SW033 will allow you to take a higher voltage and step it down to a 3.3V output in a compact, efficient manner. The DE-SW0XX family is pin-compatible with the common 78XX family of linear voltage regulators. They have integrated decoupling capacitors, so external capacitors are not generally necessary.
In quantities >50, we can custom build these regulators to have nearly any output voltage you want. Please contact us if you need this service. Volume pricing is also available.

Battery powered applications
Point of load voltage regulation
Any application where a linear or LDO regulator is dissipating too much heat or a large heatsink is undesirable
