The LM317 chip is an adjustable linear voltage regulator that you can use to provide power to your electronics project. It has a range of 1.25 to 37 volts and offers a maximum current output of 1.5 amperes.
After writing an article about batteries, I thought it’d be great to write something about displays/screens that are available for electronic projects — especially small ones before going into detail on each of them at a later article.
Recent miniaturization of electronic components not only bring smaller projects but also less power hungry ones. We now have pocket computers that do in seconds what room-sized computers do in a day — powered by batteries to boot.
In my opinion, the ESP8266 actually gave birth to the Internet of Things (IoT). The inclusion of an integrated WiFi electronics changed everything — it gave the ability for single chip computers like the ESP8266 to connect and communicate with other computers.
