Benchtop DC Power Supply

After the DMM and Logic Probe we have DC Power supply as an Essential Workbench Instrument for the Electronics Aspirant. Hobby or Engineering; we need tools to get the job done.

Now you can drool on a vintage power supply with an Analog Dial Meter and Rotary Knobs with Push-Button Selector Switches.

Benchtop DC Power Supply

Small Variable power Supply

Features: 1.3-12.2 V, 1 A, over-current protection. This is a simple but reliable device based one of the oldest integrated voltage regulators of them all - the LM723.

Power Supply Adjustable 0V-30V DC/2A

It is a simple circuit regulated power supply, based on the known LM 723, that drive a transistor Q1 [2N3055]. The regulation of voltage, of expense becomes with potentiometer R1 from 0v-30v DC roughly. In order to we achieve 30 V,...

Build A 10 Amp 13.8 Volt Power Supply By N1HFX

Sometimes amateurs like to home-brew their power supplies instead of purchasing one off the shelf at any of the major ham radio retail dealers. The advantage to rolling your own power supply is that it teaches us how they work and makes it easier to troubleshoot and repair other power supply units in the shack.

delabs Notes

Always remember Amateur Radio Operator or Ham is an highly skillful, professional and prudent design engineer. A qualification is not to be valued in Engineering, it is the Practical Problem Solving abilities that some people posses.

Sine wave Inverter 800VA

 Here are two Sine wave Inverter circuit applications that can be made into an UPS or Uninterrupted Power Supply. These are used in Home, Office and Shops. It provides emergency power when Mains power goes down or browns out.

Sine wave Inverter 800VA

These also help supply power while switching from Mains Power to In-house Diesel Generation  Power Stations or Integrate with Solar Powered Systems to provide 110 Volts or 220 Volts AC.

800VA Pure Sine Wave Inverter - High Performance Isolated Power

This application note describes the design principles and the circuit operation of the 800VA pure Sine Wave Inverter.

800VA Pure Sine Wave Inverter's Reference Design, slaa602 - TI.com

The pure Sine Wave inverter has various applications because of its key advantages such as operation with very low harmonic distortion and clean power like utility-supplied electricity, reduction in audible and electrical noise in Fans, fluorescent lights and so on, faster, quieter and cooler running of Inductive loads like microwaves and motors.

Power inverter is a device that converts electrical power from DC form to AC form using electronic circuits. It is typical application is to convert battery voltage into conventional household AC voltage allowing you to use electronic devices when an AC power is not available. There are basically three kinds of Inverter out of which, the first set of inverters made, which are now obsolete, produced a Square Wave signal at the output.

BJT Cascoded Active-load Differential Amplifier with CMFB

Build non-op-amp Common-Mode Feedback (CMFB) - This kind of high-gain differential input stage might be useful as part of an op-amp, but it's a bit silly to include an op-amp within a stage another op-amp......

Some Examples
  • 555 Timer as Oscillator / PWM Generator
  • 7805 & Wall-wart Experiencing Voltage Drop-out
  • Digital 4-bit counter and DAC
  • Diode full-wave (bridge) rectifier
  • Laplace transform step response and Bode plot
  • LED with resistor biasing
  • MOSFET switching inductive load
  • Op-Amp inverting / non-inverting amplifier
  • RLC resonance
  • Zener diode voltage reference

Circuit Cellar - The Magazine for Computer Applications

Are you wondering how it all began?
By Steve Ciarcia (Founder, Circuit Cellar)

"His first statement upon hearing about BYTE’s redirection was “How about we start our own magazine?” We had the staff, the expertise, the credibility, the support, and most importantly, the money. It was time to go for it.
