DIY simplified version of the ATX Breakout board

Posted on Wednesday, July 11th, 2012 in DIY by DP

Arup built a ATX Breakout board clone. Recycle an ATX computer power supply into a beefy bench tool that powers your projects. The ATX breakout board routes the -12, 3.3, 5 and 12 volt ATX outputs to screw terminals, each protected by a 1.25 amp resettable polyfuse.

Just completed one simplified version of the ATX Breakout board. Redesigned the board with less parts: removed fuses, etc. Done with all PTH parts and single sided board.

First production batch is sold-out, another is on it’s way. You can get them when they become available at Seeed for $13.80.

Via the forum.

    Yeah – great idea, I bought 3 for the local makerspace in my latest Seeed order – I can’t believe I never thought of doing this myself
