  • 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.

        the sproggy only puts out something around 60 (off the top of my head)

                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?
