Someone needed a few of these really, really bad, so I made a small (very small!) run.
I have contacted 2 guys that I think might want some. There may or may not be any available for others. Keep an eye here to know.
Anyway, there have been some small changes:
Output transistor can be TO-220.
Pads for a 1206 SM resistor in series w/the base/gate.
"Gate? I thought this was BJT."
Yes, but I tested it with a MOSFET.
Uh............say someone wants to power a chip that takes a lot of current. A MOSFET is easier to drive, and the extra 2-3 V should give the error amp more stand-off from the rail.
"But aren't MOSFETs noisy?"
Yeah, but if you are powering a filter chip, I don't think the extra bit of noise will hurt. Considering how much noise will be on the supply rail anyway.
So, I made provisions for a small (10R-100R) resistor for the gate. You can use a base resistor, or short across it. Your choice.
Oh..........I made some measurements the other day. I stuck 180 uF on the output, w/o any noticeable noise peaking or ringing.
"Because, I hate you guys. I hate you guys so very, very much.
