I am looking for the smallest voltage regulator I can find that will do the job. I am powering a microchip 16f690 chip. My battery is 9v 350mAh. The chip has a supply voltage requirement of approx 3 to 5.5 v. the battery runs a load and is switched by a power transistor.
I am looking at a 5v TO-92 package which has a max output of 140 mA. How do I determine the maximum input current? The data sheet lists max Vin (35v) but doesn't mention max input current.
The voltage regulator is jameco Part no. 51182
thanks
