DescriptionSometimes you have a situation where you have a 5-V supply voltage but part of the circuit needs a lower supply voltage. A voltage regulator from the Texas Instruments TPS62000 family  is a good choice for this if the current consumption is less than 600 mA.
The essential advantages are:
- small (but still manually solderable) SMD package;
- high operating frequency (750 kHz) => small external inductor;
- integrated power MOSFETs => high efficiency (up to 95 %);
- no external switching diode necessary.
