Regulated 12 volt to 5 volt conversion - Howto?
Guess I might be blasted for not searching, but the search engine here is kinda picky and I wasn't having any luck.
So I have this 12 volt regulated power of 70watts. Its a dc to dc convertor from mini-itx.com. I was thinking about mounting this in the front of the car and having it power any misc perhipials I plan to mount up there, while in the rear of the car mounting the opus 150watts. So I have this slimline cd/dvd in a case which outputs to firewire, and it is requesting 5 volt dc. I bet theres an easy way to get 5 volts from a 12 volt supply, but I don't know where to look other then here.
If you have any good reading, please point me to it.
