Title: SSR01 increasing current
Post by: DDragon80 on August 23, 2016, 12:49:27 AM

My knowledge of electronics is quite basic, so I apology already for any possible stupid questions.

What is the best method to stack multiple SSR01 voltage regulators to increase current? I need around 5V 2A max. Perfect load balancing should be nice but for me is less important(?), unless there should be a good reason to do so. The idea was to connect two SSR01 parallel and connect a diode on both outputs (+increasing Vout to 5.6V for the 0.6V drop over the diodes). Also adding a large elco in front of the circuit.

But... I also found better/complicated circuits online that involve opamp(s) and make use of the sense circuit of the voltage regulator. (http://

For example, is this (picture attached) circuit for stacking a LM317 also suitable for the SSR01?

Thanks in advance.

To use diodes is risk free but on the other hand you will loose the extremely low output impedance. The super regulator is a wide band design and it could be quite tricky to get it work properly. I don't support it I'm afraid.
