Default Driver Compilation Thread

Since we as a community are tired of waiting eons for a certain driver to be restocked, I'm putting together a Driver Compilation Thread. The purpose of this thread is to help the LPF community find alternatives to a certain boost driver that never seems to be in stock.

In order for this thread to grow, I need your help. If you know of a good driver (doesn't have to be a multi-diode driver, if you know of a driver that works well with a particular diode, post it anyway), please post here, in this format.

Driver Name:
Driver Type: (Linear, boost or buck)
Dimensions:
Current Range:
Purchase Link:
Which diodes is this best suited for:
Regulates via positive side or negative side: (Since 635's are becoming popular now and need regulation via negative for a typical build)

I will update this as needed.

Edit: Please don't post useless crap in here. Driver information only. If you want to discuss a particular driver, please do so in another thread. Thank you.

Edit 2: Also, if anyone knows of any pulsed drivers, please share this information also. Thank you.
