But the heat still remains to get rid of.
If you're linear, you get 19W to get rid of, in a 24V to 5V@1A application.
Go SMPS, and it's cold.

Got a need to read Bar codes? http://www.barcodechip.com
Bi-directional read of UPC-A, UPC-E, EAN-8, EAN-13, JAN, and Bookland, with
two or five digit supplemental codes, in an 8 pin chip, with NO external parts.
