Makers, developers and hobbyists looking for a dual output USB step up breadboard power supply might be interested in a new device which has been created by Bradley Slattery called the Toaster.
The Toaster breadboard add-on has been created to offer projects with a single 5V USB port dual power rails to provide voltages from 3.3V right up to 16V for the creation of a huge range of different applications.
The creator of the Toaster breadboard power supply explains more about its inspiration and functionality. Watch the video below to learn more about its design.
Toaster came about when I wanted a simple breadboard power supply that could power my standard 3.3V / 5V digital circuits such as a microcontroller, but would also be able to run some analog circuitry at the same time. Since most breadboards these days seem to have dual supply rails, I decided to make something to fit the need and so Toaster was born!
Toaster is simple to use, simply plug it into your breadboard and then into a USB port or charger. Toaster will then provide you with a selectable 3.3V / 5V power supply rail plus another supply rail which is variable from 5V all the way up to 16V. All from a single 5V source!
The Toaster breadboard power supply project is currently over on the Kickstarter crowd funding website looking to raise enough pledges to make the jump from concept to production. So if you think Toaster is something your electronics projects could benefit from, visit the Kickstarter website now to make a pledge and help Toaster become a reality.
