  • How about this for the 12volt line??

    Could you use 2 or 3 of the LM2587S-12 regulators to get a regulated 12volt output, at a steady 3.5amps with a 5 or so volt input???
    or can't these regulators be connected in parallel??

    Yes you can, but you will have to make sure that the feedback loops are isolated. Plus, these parts cost 8 bucks a peice!!!

      yeah, they are expensive, but cheaper than buying a pre-made power supply...

        huh?

        Jeff, are you saying something like this:



        should work?

        that would be very ok....

        If at first you don't succeed.........
        destroy all evidence you tried

        for info on t6369c LCD or Presslab's powersupply check:

          Yeah, I think it would work, but I don't need the -12volts, so it would be simpler for me...

            hey skinnyboy,

            could you tell me the difference between the 2578T and the 2578S ?

            can't figure it out on nationals website...

              Yeah, I can, it is the package type....

              the 2587T is in a TO-220 package
              the 2587S is in a TO 263 package..

              apart from that, they are the same...

                No.. That would not work, the diode would keep the first supply from doing anything because the one with the diode would keep it regulated at 12.7 while the other one would turn off because it would think that it has gone over voltage when the other one just put it at 12.7 You would need several transformers to do it in parallel. You would be better off just using a really beefy transistor.

                    But could you do this???



                    And use a MAX787 or similar to pre-regulate the voltage...
                    ???
                    just a thought...
