Small switched mode voltage regulator

Post by albertovn » Fri May 17, 2019 9:09 am

In the show, in the minute 13:48 we can see a power hat for the Raspberry Pi using a very small SMVR to convert DC to 5v DC. I'm very interested in this for my projects but I only find big modules with big capacitors and inductors. Anyone knows where can I buy something like the one seen in the show?
Thanks a lot!

Had a look at ebay? Something like this or this?
Not encapsulated but pretty small. AliExpress might be worth a look as well to see what is available there.
