Today we introduce very useful circuit. If you need operate 6V devices with 12v source, you can't connect it directly to 12V source. At that time, this circuit is very useful for you. This is very small & simple 12V to 6V Converter Circuit Diagram. It drop-down 12V to 6V and you can get 1Amp current as maximum output current using this 12V – 6V DC converter.
IC1 - LM7805 Voltage Regulator IC
C1, C2 - 1µf / 16V Electrolytic
D1, D2 - 1N4148
The maximum output current is 1A.
Install a proper heat sink to IC1.
