I new to electronic engineering and am trying to learn electronic engineering by creating little projects. I have a few questions about powering my Raspberry Pi (5 V DC @1000 mA) from a 12 V DC 1000 mA power supply. The 12 V power supply will provide power to the TFT monitor, and I want to also power my Raspberry Pi from the same source.
After doing some research, I can make a 5 V regulator using a 7805 voltage regulator and two 100 µf electrolytic capacitors. The plan is to put a heat sink on the 7805 to help dissipate the heat. My goal is to have one source of power input for my project.
- Is this the correct approach?
- Is my schematic correct?
- Is my hookup correct?
