Lab power supply

Part one of a series produced by Dave Jones of EEV Blog where he covers the steps in designing a regulated variable lab power supply based on the LT3080 voltage regulator and LM334 current supply. This design is of interest as it is a simple design that allows for control by MCU. After looking at the commercially available units, I’ve decided that designing and building my own is the best route. This will allow me to include custom features like a display showing total current drawn by the load with min/max reading, as well as switches to turn the supply lead off without shutting down the entire power supply.
