Hello Arduino Forums
This is my first post so sorry if its a bit of a mess
Basically im triyng to power an ESP8266 and i only found this regulator LM2575T-ADJ by luck on a board i had
My question is, can i make it drop my 5v source to 3,3v? By the datasheet i found (with the little knowledge that i have in the matter) i understand i could. http://www.ti.com/lit/ds/symlink/lm2575-n.pdf
But, i want to be careful not to burn my ESP8266. Can someone better than me at electronics say to me if its possible or safe?
In case of being possible/safe can someone point me to a forum of how to do it? or make a little explanation?
My Regulator says written 81BH LM2575T-ADJ P+
Thanks in advance for any reply.
