This 1.3V power supply can be used as replacement for the 1.3V Mercury Cell in any circuit. When the input 5V is given to the circuit, theÂ voltage drop acrossÂ zener diode D1 will be around 2V.The diode D2 will drop a 0.7 V from the 2V volt and the remaining 1.3V will be available at the output. The Resistor R1 limits the current through Zener diode
- The circuit can be assembled on a general purpose board.
- This power supply is suitable for devices like digital multimeters, digital clocks, digital thermometers etc.
- The zener diode D1 can be a 2V one like BZX552V0
