Voltage Regulator 7908

I only found a Voltage Regulater for 500mA not 1A.
Is this ok or will it get too hot?


Using a regulator rated for less current will not impact heat dissipation. In any case, you’ll need the heatsinks, and they’ll get warm!

Each voicecard doesn’t draw more than 20mA from the -8V rail, so you’re good to go with a 500mA part.

that was fast!
thanks for this great project!
your assembly instructions are the best I know.
not only do they tell how to do things, but they are also informative about what things do!
