    I'm very interest to see what you have done. An imaging thing is you have it done within a month.

    yes you right!
    it works 8-16 Volts at input.

    So, - i build and develop not for one month , but since february of 2006.
    this thread created about 1 month ago I just want to know is somebody build a psu more than 300W or no - thanks to all . And i really saw some projects, but threads die (upper links) ........ but this is very nice projects.


    I think it's will be commercial project , because it's very difficult to build it by yourself - optocoupler based feedback , 3 transformers , 3 pwms , logic ...... - all this need be tuned. To tune it - needs osciloscope, multimeter , frequencymeter and FREQUENCY RESPONSE ANALYZER( to stabilize feedback loops, this device costs very very high! - look at http://ridleyengineering.com/analyzer.htm -one of this devices .... and look at price ) ........
    so .......
    I think pics will be at next week or eralier

    And i saw on one russian forum http://forum.mp3car.ru/ and you can find some free version of 200w psu ( not mine development) - there are no any over/under current/voltage protections( so it's dangerous) and controller , but it's work, if i'll find that thread - i'll give you some links
    400Watt CarPC power supply for powerfull systems- thaks for Beta testers- it was perfect.

    Remember - AMD Athlon XP (socket A) powers from 5v rail in most times !

    ok - found some schematic, don't know author.

    200W
    3.3 v,12v not stabilized , like in cheap psu - for not powerfull system is a good choice i think. But not pointed parameters of transformer but you can calculate this with some free special programs

    p.s. oh - I found some mistake - C9 needs to change polarity

    You must be pretty smart and have electronics training. I was going to modify the input of a AT power supply back in the stone ages when this forum was new, but I wasn't comfortable rewinding all the high voltage transformers. Since then I've been attending business school and I'm about to graduate. I'd like to make an ATX power supply but I don't have the proper tools which you talk about. I'd have to study how they have the hibernate and the pushbutton switch work (the smarts of the new PSU).

    Thanks
    Wow it's a good idea to rebuild standard atx power supply, but rewinding of it's high-voltage transformer isn't a good way, more powerfull way is to replace psu's transformer by diy thoroidal transformer, and add fets and fets driver to drive this transformer. 5Vsb may be produсed by using lm7805 ic. But this psu will not be isolated,but it's work- some guys rebuild standard atx psu - build based on it supply, but it was only 150W

    I'd have to study how they have the hibernate and the pushbutton switch work (the smarts of the new PSU).
    so about logic - it's very simply - pic or avr controller based, program inside of controller drives PSU, provides logic of work and one of most ports of controller drives optocoupler to "push the on button" - there is optotransistor inside optocoupler , which shorts contacts on motherboard hibernate is windows function - reaction on "push button"
