Improved Low Voltage Adaptor
Silicon Chip Magazine May 2008
Need to operate a CD, DVD or MP3 player from the cigarette lighter socket in your car? Or perhaps run a digital still or video camera, or some powered speakers from the power supply inside your PC? The odds are you'll need this little adaptor to step the voltage down. It has a push-on jumper shunt to select one of six common output voltages (3V, 5V, 6V, 9V, 12V or 15V) from a higher input voltage. Depending on the input voltage and the heatsink you use, it can deliver an output current of up to four amps or so. Kit includes PCB and all specified components.
