AnyVolt Micro Universal DC-DC Converter

product image

 

Product Description

AnyVolt Micro is a miniature step-up / step-down switching DC-DC converter. The output is adjustable from 2.6V to 14V and currents up to 0.5A can be drawn. AnyVolt Micro is useful when you need to step from a lower voltage to a higher voltage, or when your input voltage occasionally dips below the output voltage.

The output voltage is set with a small screw potentiometer on the side of the AnyVolt Micro. Once the output voltage is set, it does not matter whether input voltage is higher, lower, or the same as the desired output i.e. there is no dropout voltage.

The AnyVolt Micro is pin-compatible with the common 78XX series of linear voltage regulators, so it will work with breadboards and other popular prototyping methods.

AnyVolt Micro is very different from any other DC-DC converter on the market so please read the entire datasheet thoroughly before buying or using one.

AnyVolt Micro is the smaller, lighter and cheaper successor to AnyVolt Mini. It also adds thermal, overcurrent and short circuit protection, making it very hard to kill (like zombies).

Never soldered before? You might like our breakout boards.

10W Step down adjustable switching regulator - $13.99

Model Dimension Engineering DESWADJ

10W Step down adjustable switching regulator

product image

 

Product Description

The DE-SWADJ is the adjustable version of our SW0XX step down voltage regulators. It is designed to be the easiest possible way to add an adjustable voltage source to a new or existing project with all the efficiency benefits of switch-mode power. The DE-SWADJ is pin-compatible with the common 78XX family of linear voltage regulators, and has a small screw on top that allows you change the output voltage as your project evolves. It has integrated decoupling capacitors, so external capacitors are not generally necessary.

DE-SWADJ can deliver a maximum of 10 Watts.

The screw potentiometer on DE-SWADJ is worm-gear driven, so small vibrations and movement will not cause the voltage to shift. Use of glue to hold the screw in place is strongly discouraged and could damage the device.

 

Product Specs

  • Adjustable from 1.25 to 13V output using screw
  • 1A output at 1.25 to 10V (Please see datasheet for current ratings at higher voltages)
  • >90% efficiency at >9v out
  • 1.3V typical dropout voltage at full load an be put in parallel

 

Applications

  • Battery powered applications
  • Robots
  • Battery charging
  • Electronics prototyping
  • Powering multiple servos at their max rated voltage

25W Step down adjustable switching regulator - $22.99

Model Dimension Engineering DESWADJ3

25W Step down adjustable switching regulator

product image

 

Product Description

The DE-SWADJ 3 is a larger version of our DE-SWADJ adjustable step down voltage regulator. Previously it was necessary to put multiple DE-SWADJ units in parallel to achieve ratings over 1A, which was bulky, expensive and carried with it a considerable increase in dropout voltage. The DE-SWADJ 3 is designed to be stronger, faster and better. It can process 3A of current, typical ripple is 25mV and under ideal circumstances the regulator can be up to 96% efficient.

It continues the ease-of-use of the DE-SWADJ, making it simple to add an adjustable voltage source to a new or existing project with all the efficiency benefits of switch-mode power. The DE-SWADJ 3 is pin-compatible with the common 78XX family of linear voltage regulators, and has a small screw on top that allows you change the output voltage as your project evolves. It has integrated decoupling capacitors, so external capacitors are not generally necessary.

DE-SWADJ3 can deliver a maximum of 25 Watts.

Product Specs

  • Adjustable from 3 to 13V output using screw
  • 3A output at 3 to 8V (Please see datasheet for current ratings at higher voltages)
  • >90% efficiency
