Breadboard power supply roundup

Posted on Tuesday, June 29th, 2010 in dev boards by Ian

Breadboards are a fast and easy way to prototype a circuit, and just about every hobby electronics biz has a power supply that’s supposed to fit a breadboard. IPenguin compared the designs from Seeed Studio, Adafruit Industries, and SparkFun.

What’s features are on your ideal breadboard power supply?

    I have a breadboard with power supplies built in. Scrounged it out of a dumpster. +12, -12, +5. It does pay to dumpster dive.

  • Pekka Akselin: This is ridiculous!? :-) We are back at 256(!) byte EPROMs that needed multiple, a handful, of voltages to run! :-(
  • KH: Let's try a back-of-envelope calc balancing energies. From MCP1700 datasheet, there are graphs for a 200mA load step. Estimate the energy shortfall as 12uJ. Say...
