    New product: DCDC-USB (DC-DC converter with USB interface)

    I thought you might enjoy our lastest product, DCDC-USB. (see pictures at http://www.mini-box.com/DCDC-USB). This is good for single rail computers or dumb peripherals.

    Accepts any input from 6-34V and outputs regulated 12V (BUCK-BOOST topology). Output can also be set to any voltage ranging from 6 to 24V by changing jumpers.

    Sends ON/OFF puse to the M/B. For example, it can be used with the Intel D945GSEJT.

    This design is capable of handling large amounts of power, it is based on the LTC3780 BUCK-BOOST circuit. On the USB side it is a 8 bit PIC microcontroler from Microchip.

    Since this unit has a MCU on-board, the product can have many personalities, can be used a a programmable PSU, UPS unit, etc, etc. We even have a simple scripting language (not public yet, still working on it)

    Best Regards,
    -A

    In the manual it states it can be set to 18v. I was wondering if it can produce 18.5V for a laptop application?

    andrewb, does this converter operates as an inverter as well ?
    if the input is 12VDC, can it output 19VDC ?

    Hmmm, could be competition for the Carnetix 2140, one output voltage vs. two, but the price is definitely right.

    How about an enclosure?

    EDIT: nevermind this post, it does have timing settings
