The PowerTwig is a small form factor dual power supply for use in small projects with various power sources. With outputs of 5 and 3.3 volts, it can be used with numerous microcontroller circuits such as the Parallax Propeller and Basic Stamp, Cypress microcontrollers like PSoC, Atmel devices, Arduino setups, PIC projects, etc, etc.
At 3 inches by 0.25 inches, the PowerTwig is a tiny way to add 5V and 3.3V power to a breadboard or protoboard project. 3 sets of headers let you connect to Vin, 5V, & 3.3V. You can also solder wires directly into the output locations for a hardwired touch for finished projects. Aluminum electrolytic & ceramic capacitors provide power stability, and the 2.1mm power jack lets you connect 6V-10V power adapters. Maximum total current rating is 800mA, perfect for prototyping and handheld projects.
