This is an updated version of the LM317 kit we've been selling.
Here is a simple LM317 power supply kit so that you don't have to build the regulator on the protoboard every time you need one! One handy application is a pre-regulator for Arduino when running from higher voltages, such as 12V or more. It is well known that at high input, Arduino power supply dissipates quite a bit of power and gets really hot, even to the point of shutting down. By dropping the input to 7-8V that can be easily avoided. (See the Arduino Survival Guide article by Ed Nisley in Circuit Cellar #269 for details)
The output voltage is adjustable by selecting the proper value of R2. The LM317 chip is at the edge of the board, so if higher currents are needed, you can add a heatsink (not included). Input voltage range is 3V to 40V, and the output can be set between 1.25V and 37V. Output current is limited to 1.5A, and depends on the power dissipation in the chip and cooling. You get all the parts pictured and a bare board. The formula for calculating resistor value is shown on the schematic as well as on the board silk. The input and output pins are on a 0.1" grid and can be used with breadboard if desired. Board size is 27x31mm

I am a one man shop, designing and making boards and kits. Usually they start as something I need for my own project, but with an eye on making them available to others. In my day job, I design complex electronic systems.
If you need a variation of what I offer or a completely new design from scratch- I do that too!
What you see is what you get. You as a buyer are responsible for making sure these kits fit a particular purpose you have in mind. If you have questions, or need more information- feel free to ask before buying. If you need shipping option that differs from offered-contact me before placing the order
