Brick-by-Brick Power Supply

modularity = total versatility

Brick-by-Brick Power Supply
Originally designed as a more compact power supply for our 10-MHz DDS Function Generator the board described in this article can double for other applications when fitted out with different modules. Selecting, combining and optimizing, that’s what this project is all about.
