Universal Symmetric Power Supply

Universal Symmetric Power Supply
This power supply has been specially designed for the 20th-order filter described elsewhere in this issue, but it can also be used for a legion of other opamp circuits. The supply voltage is set to ±17.5 V, in light of the maximum output level of the filter. This benefits the signal to noise ratio. The specified absolute maximum supply voltage for most opamps is ±18 V, and we have intentionally kept a bit below this limit.

Gerber file

CAM/CAD data for the PCB referred to in this article is available as a Gerber file. Elektor GREEN and GOLD members can exclusively download these files for free as part of their membership. Gerber files allow a PCB to be produced on an appropriate device available locally, or through an online PCB manufacturing service.

Elektor recommends its business partner Eurocircuits as the company of choice for its own prototypes and volume production in selected cases.
