A bench power supply is an essential tool for all electronics hobbyists. Building one is the right of passage for every electrical engineer. My BCIT program included a 4-week course ELEX 1102: Electronics Fabrication Tools and Techniques, in which we built a very basic bench power supply.
We learned soldering skills in this course. We also learned how to use Altium Designer to design our own PCBs.
During a previous course (ELEX 1112: Engineering Tools) we learned how to use AutoCAD and designed the body for this power supply.
The DC Power Supply provides three DC voltage outputs when powered by a 120VAC 60Hz source. The rated DC output voltages are +5VDC (fixed), -15VDC (fixed), and +15VDC (variable). The rated current at each output is 1A.
