    Where to buy electrical components??

    I need to find the following parts to build a circuit for the MAX724 swithcing regulator chip. Radio Shack does not carry all of these parts I'm told...

    2.21K resistor
    2.8k resistor
    2.7k resistor
    470 uF polarized capacitor
    220uF polarized capacitor
    0.01uF regular capacitor
    MBR745 diode
    50uH inductor

    Does anybody know where I could purchase all these parts either online or somewhere in the Phoenix, AZ area? Thanks, I can't seem to find the inductor or diode anywhere. And also a couple of those resistor values seem hard to find as well. Where do you guys buy your parts?

    Try digi-key, and Mouser electronics. They should be easy to find on .

    Can I just ask why you would do a switching regulator, that requires several external components, will be harder to build and to source the parts, when a linear needs just 3 parts that are easy to find?

    Alrighty, I am gonna make a comment here I could get fired for: Radio Shack no longer carries anything you could possibly need to complete such a project. If you need complex electrical components, go somewhere else.

    Such as:

    www.Mouser.com (my favorite)
    www.digikey.com (antique ordering system, but carries things mouser doesn't carry, sometimes)
    2000 Subaru OBS

    Dell P3 @ 900 Mhz
    7" Lilliput TS w/DigitalWW in-dash mount
    80GB External HD

    I think it's the challenge I don't see a particular problem with playing around with something that most people avoid. And potentially no heat sink. Either way, should be fun.
    I have found you an argument; I am not obliged to find you an understanding.

    The reason was that I need atleast 1500mA. Also, after seeing that my USB harddrive needs some more power also, I may actually need close to 2 Amps. If there is a simplier way to supply this much power I rather do so. Let me know if there is!

    Okay wow. I think i'm slightly over my head. I can't figure out which parts to select. Could someone find it in their hart to list mouser/digikey part numbers??? This had got me stumpted.

    512-MBR745 for the diode
    660-CZB2AFLTE500P for the inductor

    And I am gonna leave it up to you to find the proper resistors. I don't know the wattage, size, form factor, etc.

    FYI, I think the shipping from Mouser is pretty damn high. I was surprised at checkout when I was ordering. Cheap would be a local hole-in-the-wall electronics store if you can find one. The ones I've gone to in LA almost always just round to some random amount. If I have a assortment of resistors and capacitors, they just look at it and say "eeeh, 50 cents?"

    Try a local store first.

    kiltjim - Thank's for those part numbers.
    psyrex - Good point, I'll look into what is out my way. I don't know of any, but that big ol' yellow book might.

    Also, as far as "wattage, size, form factor, etc.", what would be the best to use for my application of the MAX724 regulator?

    I wholeheartedly agree, but I did small stuff before I built my first regulated PS. ALso, please don't take this the wrong way spdy, He can't even manage to find the part numbers for the parts list you have given him.

    Certainly he should start small, say soldering 4 components, then 10. Less to trouble shoot. Less to solder. Easier schematic. Hmmmm, just seems like maybe he should crawl before he runs.
