On Paper and Breadboarding: Maxim MAX603 5V Low Dropout Voltage Regulator
The MAX603 is a Voltage Regulator that will provide 5v output and can accept a voltage very close to this output voltage featuring its low dropout.
The input voltage is connected to pin 1 and the output of 5v is from pin 8. the two middle pins on each side is connected to ground. Pin 4 is the off pin and to have the regulator enabled, this pin must be connected to the input voltage or pin.
The set pin at pin 5 is a pin that if it is connected to gnd, that pin will tell the chip to use the set voltage output of 5v. If a resistor is connected to this pin, the output voltage can be modified.
A capacitor is connected between the output pin and gnd and another capacitor is connected to input and gnd. Both capacitor values are 10uF (microfarad)
