    Okay Guys and dolls heres the deal. Im building my new system. Im new to the mp3car game so i need some help. I Need a DC-DC Power Supply with an input of 12-15v and an output of 5V solid. The smaller the better. Can Anyone help?

    IS that it, don't you need any other voltages??
    and how solid do you need the output to be, and I think it would be better to have it with a range of about 10-16volts input, and how much current does it have to be able to deliver, I personally would make one using either 1, 2, or 3 MAX787

      What type of system do you want to power? If you need AT, check out the Arise 865V ( ). If it is ATX, scroll down and look at all the ATX supply posts.

      If all you need is 5V, check out any of the multiple electronics surplus companies (MECI, etc.). They probably have a DC-DC to suite your purpose.
