0 Digital-Controlled Power Supply

This circuit is a logic-controlled power supply unit. The regulator IC (like 7805, 7806, 7808, 7812, others) output is controlled by a signal  (CMOS or TTL) from microcontrollers, comparator, opamp, and other signal generators. When signal is 1 (5V) output is high (determined by IC regulator), and when signal is 0 (0V) output is low (0V). You can add fuse at the input or output for protection.
