    Question Sproggy Modification, changing the dimensions

    Is it possible to change the dimmensions of the sproggy power supply by using a different pcb and putting all the same parts on in slightly different places. I need the power supply dimmensions not to be higher than 50mm and not to be wider than 170mm. i want to get depth to be as small as possible so (HxWxD) = (50x170x?) or if there is another power supply similar to the one i described that already exists then what is it, I have looked but found none. I am aming for less than 30mm for the depth even less than that if possible not sure if it is just have to hope i guess.

    the power supply that comes in this case meets those specs.. just keep in mind you need to feed it 12v 5a regulated.

    so the DC-DC power supply that comes with this board does not regulate the power like a sproggy would? if not then what could i do to regulate the voltage in? i need small and low heat ideas.

    would this work to regulate the power supply or is there a different kind that would work better?
