Beginning Embedded Electronics - Power Supply Kit Product Help and Resources

Core Skill: DIY

Whether it's for assembling a kit, hacking an enclosure, or creating your own parts; the DIY skill is all about knowing how to use tools and the techniques associated with them.


Skill Level: Noob - Basic assembly is required. You may need to provide your own basic tools like a screwdriver, hammer or scissors. Power tools or custom parts are not required. Instructions will be included and easy to follow. Sewing may be required, but only with included patterns.

Core Skill: Electrical Prototyping

If it requires power, you need to know how much, what all the pins do, and how to hook it up. You may need to reference datasheets, schematics, and know the ins and outs of electronics.

2 Electrical Prototyping

Skill Level: Rookie - You may be required to know a bit more about the component, such as orientation, or how to hook it up, in addition to power requirements. You will need to understand polarized components.

    I completed the Beginning Embedded Electronics - Power Supply Kit Tutorial in about 45 minutes. The tutorial was very clear, and the LED worked fine. It is very instructive to build a simple circuit like this, complete with a PTC

    This probable stupid to ask but what voltage and amps does it put out?

    • MikeGrusin / about 11 years ago / 1

      The 7805 voltage regulator will put out 5.0V at up to 1.5A if it has a heat sink - without a heat sink, it will probably put out around an Amp before it gets too hot and shuts itself off (it will turn back on again after it cools down).

    Just got this kit, mostly because I have the extra parts to make the power adapter into a 3.3/5V adapter and the normal breadboard was out of stock. However, the breadboard wasn't like the one pictured, but the one hyper-linked in the description below. (i.e. I have a yellow jack instead of a green one and the metal plate isn't labeled.)

    From skimming the article I noticed we need an ATmega328 chip. Is this included in this kit?

  • to get 5volts power supply kit i need to spend INR 1500+ i cant afford that much its too costly to buy components. :(

    Nice Kit but for a future revision might i recommend the PRT-10288 instead of the original barrel jack.

    I can't learn (buy) if it ain't stocked! Popular kit it seems!
