Hi, I think it's time we can/should go away from linear regulators, even on these "Little guy" boards.
Yes I think these switchers are so cheap and easy to use these days it's time to start letting go of linear regulators for the "front end".
some DC/DC converters which were very close in size, and with the same pinout, as a the usual TO-220 regulator.
you also need to buy a coil, and matching those to your requirements is (so I've read) a bit tricky?
Take a look at the new FT230 and FT231 from FTDI.
I think I'm going to like these even better!
