    Search for a better way....

    I've been reading through the forums like mad for the last week (since i found this site) and searching the net for almost a month, and still am unable to find a good, high power, dc-dc, regulated power supply, anyone want to just kick out some ideas?

    Build a Sproggy...
    Oh.. You wanted it SIMPLE

    Those are your two options. Build a sproggy or go with a lower-power setup.
    Deal with it or do something to create a better option for yourself and/or the rest of us.
    Have you looked in the FAQ yet?
    How about the Wiki?



    Under normal circumstances, a signature would go here.

    What is it you're wanting to power?

    List it here, and we'll tell you what to do.

    well, anything that comes from Mastero generally isn't that great, or well designed...

    I have been working on a switchmode PSU that is basically the same as a mains powered one, but that will run off 10-16 volts...

    so, instead of using underrated switchmode ICs for each rail, there will be a single switchmode controller IC, and a transformer with multiple secondary windings for each rail

    ummm... should be good for 300watts, and fairly small... reliable, and easy to build... only thing is, you have to wind your own transformer..

    That sounds good, I'd like to see some plans if it works out.
    >confused
    i want to power a some stuff i have laying around, i think it's around 500mhz on an atx board, onboard video-might use a vid card if i want/need svideo or composite out, sound blaster 5.1 card, and a standard dvd drive. that's the base anyway, but i want to get that worked out first and have plenty of power left over for add-ons...

    You realize you will be pulling 25 Amps through the primary windings (assuming 100% efficiency). It will have to be a specialized transformer indeed! It can be done, but you'll be dealing with very high switch frequencies, and a very tight transformer design. Not to criticize or anything, but you’re not the first poster to promise the world. If you pull it off you'll be a hero around here .
