Bus Pirate high voltage power supply

The crew at Robots and Dinosaurs prototyped a high voltage power supply for a geiger counter tube using the Bus Pirate pulse-width modulator. They were able to step up 5volts to 800volts+ with a simple boost converter circuit on a bread board.

We always like to see new ways to use the Bus Pirate. Thanks for the tip!
