The Voltage Regulator LM317 is an adjustable three-terminal positive-voltage regulator. It is capable of supplying more than 1.5 A over an output-voltage range of 1.25 V to 37 V. This LM317 regulator requires only two external resistors to set the output voltage. The device features a typical line regulation of 0.01% and a typical load regulation of 0.1%.
