TOP242 power source for 10W LEDs

Mincior over at Electroni-city built this DIY  TOP242 power source for 10W LEDs :

Inside the case of a regular wall charger with a 500mA transformer I’ve built a source in commutation for powering 10W LEDs by using a TOP242 integrated circuit in the primary part and the LM393 dual comparator on low voltage.

    That is an interesting extruded heatsink with spring-clip on the power package, have not seen that style before.

  • Drone: So these go for around $330 USD and NO published calibration procedure online or otherwise? Given what's inside - I don't think I'll be considering...
  • 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...
