What city is the Circuit of the Americas?

What city is the Circuit of the Americas?

Circuit of The Americas is the premier destination for world-class motorsports and entertainment in the United States. Set on 1,500 acres in the rolling hills just outside downtown Austin, Circuit of The Americas has hosted the biggest names in racing, action sports and music since 2012.

Is Circuit of the Americas a good track?

“Austin is a good track, it’s a challenging layout which is good to drive and it’s an enjoyable event. The first turn is quite something with its very steep climb and the rest of the lap flows well. The atmosphere at the circuit is really special, even for the first time we visited.

Who won Circuit of the Americas?

Chase Elliott
Defending Cup Series champion Chase Elliott won the inaugural EchoPark Texas Grand Prix at Circuit of the Americas on a soaked Sunday, his fifth victory in the last six road-course races. Austin’s first-ever Cup race was called by rain and low visibility with 14 laps to go.

What is the output voltage of a 7805 IC?

The xx in 78xx indicates the output voltage it provides. 7805 IC provides +5 volts regulated power supply with provisions to add a heat sink. Output voltage range V Max=5.2V , V Min=4.8V In this pin of the IC positive unregulated voltage is given in regulation.

What kind of feedback loop does the 7805 have?

The 7805’s bandgap circuit removes the feedback loop that exists inside a traditional bandgap reference. Instead, the entire chip becomes the feedback loop. If the output voltage is correct (5V), then the voltage divider provides 3.75V at Vin.

What should I do with my 7805 voltage regulator?

Either design your circuit so that the input voltage going into the regulator is limited to 2-3 volts above the output regulated voltage or place an appropriate heatsink, that can efficiently dissipate heat. What to do with all the heat? 7805 voltage regulator is not very efficient and has drop-out voltage problems.

What does the bandgap reference on the 7805 do?

The heart of the 7805 IC is a transistor (Q16) that controls the current between the input and output and thus controlling the output voltage. The bandgap reference (yellow) keeps the voltage stable.
