This small synchronous switching step-down (or buck) regulator takes an input voltage of up to 36 V and efficiently reduces it to 12 V. The board measures only 0.7″ × 0.7″ yet delivers a typical continuous output current of up to 2.2 A and features reverse voltage protection. Typical efficiencies of 90% to 95% make this regulator well suited for powering moderate loads like sensors or small motors. An optional shutdown pin enables a low-power state with a current draw of around 50 μA to 350 μA, depending on the input voltage, and a power-good output indicates when the regulator cannot adequately maintain the output voltage.
The D24V22F12 step-down voltage regulator generates lower output voltages from input voltages as high as 36 V. It is a synchronous switching regulator (also called a switched-mode power supply (SMPS) or DC-to-DC converter) with typical efficiencies of 90% to 95%, which is much more efficient than linear voltage regulators, especially when the difference between the input and output voltage is large. The available output current is a function of the input voltage and efficiency (see the Typical efficiency and output currentsection below), but the output current can typically be as high as 2.2 A.
These regulators have a typical quiescent (no load) current draw of around 1 mA, and an enable pin can be used to put the boards in a low-power state that reduces the quiescent current to approximately 5 µA to 10 µA per volt on VIN.
The modules have built-in reverse-voltage protection, short-circuit protection, a thermal shutdown feature that helps prevent damage from overheating, and a soft-start feature that reduces inrush current.

Using the regulator
This buck regulator has five main connection points for five different electrical nodes: power good (PG), enable (EN), input voltage (VIN), ground (GND), and output voltage (VOUT). The board also features a second ground connection point off the main row of connections that might be convenient for applications where you are soldering wires directly to the board rather than using it in a breadboard.
The input voltage, VIN, powers the regulator. Voltages up to 36 V can be applied to VIN. The effective lower limit of VIN is 12 V plus the regulator’s dropout voltage, which varies approximately linearly with the load (see below for a graph of dropout voltages as a function of the load).
The output voltage, VOUT, is fixed at 12 V.
The regulator is enabled by default: a 270 kΩ pull-up resistor on the board connects the EN pin to reverse-protected VIN. The EN pin can be driven low (under 1 V) to put the board into a low-power state. The quiescent current draw in this sleep mode is dominated by the current in the pull-up resistor from EN to VIN and by the reverse-voltage protection circuit, which altogether will draw between 5 µA and 10 µA per volt on VIN when EN is held low (~50 μA at 13 V in to ~350 μA at 36 V in). If you do not need this feature, you should leave the EN pin disconnected.
The “power good” indicator, PG, is an open-drain output that goes low when the regulator’s output voltage falls below around 10 V and becomes high-impedance when the output voltage rises above around 11 V. An external pull-up resistor is required to use this pin.
