Digitally controlled power supply

Wednesday, January 16th, 2013

Wvdv2002 shared his digitally controlled power supply with us in the forums. It's capable of driving 0-18V while having a current controlled output of 0-3A. The brains of the design is the PIC18f46j50 which controls a switch mode regulator's voltage and current output through the MCP4822 two channel I2C DAC....
