How To Make A 12v DC To 9v DC Power Converter

How to make a 12v DC to 9v DC power converter.

This converter is particularly useful for working with Arduino boards which boards, if you wish to  use an external power supply rather than the 5 v  USB connection.

The circuit is simple to assemble.

Materials Required

1  LM7809

2  100 uF Capacitors

2  0.1 uF Capacitors

Vero Board
