7808 Voltage Regulator Fixed Positive 8V Linear IC L7808CV

  • RM1.30

  • Product Code: 7808
  • Availability: In Stock

7808 is a 8V Voltage Regulator that restricts the voltage output to 8V and draws 8V regulated power supply to provides a convenient power source for most TTL components.

A series of 78XX voltage regulators (as known as L78xx, LM78xx, MC78xx...), the xx is replaced with two digits, indicating the output voltage (for example, the 7805 has a 5-volt output, while the 7812 produces 12 volts).



  • Circuits requiring steady 8v supply
  • Protection for devices having specific voltage sensitivity
  • DIY projects requiring specific voltage from an existing higher/ varying voltage supply



  • Fixed 8V voltage regulators
  • Thermal overload protection
  • Short circuit protection
  • Output transition SOA protection
  • Heatsink is required *

Linear regulator like 7808 has performance issues with respect to battery life and Power loss. If you are looking for an alternative for 7808 with better efficiency and less power loss, then we would recommend a DC Buck Switching voltage regulator

Buck converters may be preferred over 78xx regulators because they are more efficient and do not require heat sinks, but they are more expensive.
