A high current power supply built around a server voltage regulator

Andy Brown designed and built a power supply controller board for the Artesyn NXA66:

I decided that the best way to exploit the results of the reverse engineering effort was to design a controller board that would host the NXA66 and expose its functionality via a front panel. I’d throw in a few simple extras myself such as current monitoring and data logging and finally I’d implement it as a through-hole design so that it could be implemented by people of all skill and equipment levels.
The end result will be a bench-power supply that’s cheap to build and has a current supply level greater than that of most supplies priced at hobbyist levels.

More details at Andy Brown’s blog.
