Workshop Update for December 14th, 2012

Posted on Friday, December 14th, 2012 in Workshop Update by Filip


Today we did our end-of-year administrative stuff. We also searched and wrote up the app note posts for this weekend. On the hardware side we started designing a simple fused fixed voltage breadboard power supply

    I’m interested in seeing the power supply.

  2. Matseng says:

    Please make sure that the power supplies fit different-sized breadboards. I’ve got two breadboard power supplies from Tautic but they don’t fit any of my breadboards.

    Hmmm. So the power supply plugs directly into a 0.1″ proto-board? If-so, myriad simple examples with LM3XX or LDO’s exist. Maybe one that has quiet +/- rails for analog and at-least fixed 5V & 3.3V. It should run off a USB port maybe – optional LiPo battery interface. Oh well, there goes the “simple” part of it…
