6V to 12V DC Voltage Doubler

Here is the 6V to 12V DC voltage doubler circuit design, it also called DC voltage miltiplier or DC to DC converter. This dc voltage doubler circuit will need about 2A from the 6V input supply to produce the full 800mA at 12V for the power output.

This circuit is very useful to generate higher voltage from a low power source, but this circuit will deliver low output current. So it should only be used for low current driven applications. Also, the output voltage may be unstable, so a voltage regulator (IC78XX) of proper rating can be used regulation and smooth output. But voltage regulator IC itself consume some current, and reduce the deliverable current.

Sealed Lead Acid (SLA) 12V Battery Charger with Current Limiting

This is the circuit design of Smart Sealed Lead Acid (SLA) 12V Battery Charger featuretwith Current Limiting. The charger uses a two step process for charging SLA batteries – a current limited ‘fast’ mode followed by a constant voltage ‘float’ mode. Maximum charging current is 1A.

An onboard LED indicates when the charger is in ‘fast’ mode. When the LED goes out the battery is charged and the charger has switched to ‘float’ mode.

Rectifier Circuit Without Diodes

This the rectifier circuit to convert AC supply become DC supply which not required diode, in other words, this is an diodeless rectifier, rectifier circuit without diodes.

Simple Split Power Supply 9V

This is a simple circuit design of 9V split power supply. This power supply circuit delivers plus and minus 9V to substitute the two 9V batteries. The rectifier circuit is certainly two separate full-wave rectifiers fed from the secondary of the transformer. One full-wave rectifier consists of diodes Dl and D2, which produce +9 V, and then the other consists of D3 and 4, which produce -9 V.

+15V / 1A Regulated Power Supply using uA723

This is the design diagram of +15V / 1A regulated power supply using uA723.
Circuit operation: The supply receives +20VDC from the rectifier / filter section (diode bridge). This is applied to pins 11 and 12 of the IC uA723, as well as to the collector of the 2N3055 series-pass transistor. The output voltage is simpled through R1 and R1, providing about 7V with respect to ground at pin 4. The reference terminal at pin 6 is tied directly to pin 5, the noninverting input of the error amplifier. For fine tuning output voltage, a potensiometer can be installed between R1 and R2. A 100 pF capacitor to pin 4 furnishes gain compesation for the amplifier.

-15V / 1A Regulated DC Power Supply

This is the scheme design of -15V / 1A Regulated DC Power Supply. It used uA723 precision voltage regulator and TIP105 PNP Epitaxial Silicon Darlington transistor. The supply receives -20V from the rectifier/filted which is fed to the collector of the Darlington PNP pass transistor, a TIP105. The base drive to the TIP105 is supplied through resistor R5. The base of the TIP105 is driven from Vz terminal at pin 9, which is the anode of a 6.2V zener diode that connects to the emitter of the uA723 output control transistor.
