I am a software developer and I don't know much about circuits so I need help.
I have an ESP8266 (esp-12) 3.3V and I'm planning to use it with an IR proximity sensor (runs between 4.5-5V). I have 2 AA batteries (3V total) and 4 AA (6V total) power supplies. Also, I have a bunch of 10K Ohm and 330 Ohm resistors.
How can I use a voltage divider to supply sufficient voltage to these components, based on what I have? If it would help, I have a 100uF capacitor and I use a CP2102 to TTL Serial Converter to program. Any help will be appreciated. Thank you in advance.
