Greetings All,
I have built my control system for my airplane lighting with an 08M, but now I need to reduce that input voltage to a voltage the 08M (Picaxe) can use. I then pump that signal back up enough to power the multi-layered LEDs for the anti-collision light with a simple IRL520. Please help me with figuring out the best way to kick down that 12 vdc to 4.5 vdc. Any assistance afforded will be eternally appreciated!

Do you mean something other than a voltage regulator IC?
