6 Volt Regulator using IC 7806
Here is the elementary 6V 1A power supply circuit using 7806 IC. The 7806 three-terminal positive voltage regulator is available in the TO-220/D-PAK package making them useful in a wide range of applications. 7806 employs internal current limiting, thermal shut down and safe operating area protection, making it essentially indestructible. If proper heat sinking is provided, it can deliver over 1 ampere output current.

Pin out of 7806
- If 2A bridge is not available make one with four 1N 4007 diodes.
- Fit a proper heat sink with 7806 if your circuit draws more than 400mA current.
