The MAX638 step-down switching regulator is designed for minimum component, low power, DC-DC conversion. Typical applications require only a small, low-cost inductor, an output filter capacitor, and a catch diode. Low battery detection circuitry is included on chip. Though most simply used as a fixed +5V output regulator, the MAX638 can be set for other voltages by adding 2 resistors.
