The L87805 is a positive 5V voltage regulator in a TO-220 package.
These regulators can provide local on-card regulation, eliminating the distribution problems associated with single point regulation. The L7805 has internal current limiting, thermal shut-down and safe area protection, making it essentially indestructible. If adequate heat sinking is provided, they can deliver over 1 A output current.
Although designed primarily as fixed voltage regulators, these devices can be used with external components to obtain adjustable voltage and currents.
