The truth about the APTS006A0X

It's cheaper than any purpose built BEC. It does work. It gets hot when converting 12V to 3.3V for a digicam, so no shrink wrapping. It's designed to be soldered on a board like a BGA, with airflow under the inductor. It needs odd resistors to determine the output voltage & can't use resistor dividers like the LM317. Sparkfun doesn't have the odd resistors, but digikey does, in addition to having the DC-DC converter.
