Makers and developers that have a number of old PC power supplies sitting around gathering dust, may be interested in a new ATX breakout board which supports all PC power supplies and allows you to utilise them for new projects and builds with ease.
Created by Richard Willmott based in Wales, the high quality ATX breakout board uses your old PC Power supply as a bench power supply with multiple voltage outputs and was first designed in Cadsoft Eagle, making sure every component would fit correctly.
The ATX Breakout board is compatible with 20 pin and 24 pin power supply’s, also there is an extra 4 pin connector to take advantage of the 12V CPU Power for extra current output. The output voltages are 12V 5V and 3.3V. Also there is a USB Charging port capable of supplying 5 Amp. The output ports of the ATX Breakout board require no tools to use and simply snap into position holding the wire in place.
– Size: 89mm x 50mm x 35mm
– Output Voltages: 12V 5V 3.3V
– Maximum Output Current: 20 Amp
– No tool output ports
– Wire Size AWG Max: 14AWG
– Wire Size AWG Min: 28AWG
– Blue LED power on indication
– ENIG (Electroless Nickel Immersion Gold)
