was the 7805 and all was well in the hobbyist world. Then people
started wondering... "Can we power our devices and projects to last
longer with a cheaper power source than a 9 volt transistor
battery?" From that simple question came Dinam
Technologies MiniPower series power supplies. Bringing
miniature switch mode power solutions within reach of the electronic
hobbyist and experimenter.
become the leader in low voltage DC to DC power supplies for the small
volume manufacturer and hobby markets. We are dedicated to the
innovator and his creations. In other words... We are here for the
purpose of, "bringing power to your ideas!"
a small company devoted to the idea that just because an idea for a
product comes from a small company, that doesn't make it a small
ideas. Your product or idea shouldn't be limited because the
components to make your idea truly efficient are beyond your reach
because of low volumes. By providing standard power solutions to
multiple small business owners and manufacturers, we can take advantage
of our ability to provide economy of scale and pass on saving to our
customers as well. Also, by providing a pre-designed solution to
their power needs, the user of our products can concentrate on their
idea rather than how to power their design.
those of you considering our products, here's what Parallax had this to
say about us...
What is a
MP series power supply?
MiniPower (MP) series of Switch-Mode DC to DC converters for
battery-powered equipment are designed to lower the battery count and
provide as much state-of-the-art power as possible in a very small
package. They represent a technology previously available only to OEMs
of Cell Phones, Personal Digital Assistants, Pagers, Electronic Cameras,
and other hand-held devices. Now, this technology is available to anyone
who would like to easily incorporate it into his or her design
may ask, Why substitute a Switch-Mode power supply when a simple linear
will work? The answer is, For the same reason the OEMs of the
aforementioned products do! A Switch-Mode power supply is not only much
more efficient at utilizing the precious energy contained in each cell,
but also allows the use of fewer and less expensive cells. A MiniPower
regulated supply will power the same circuit from 1 to 3 cells as would
require 4 or more cells, or a costly 9V battery with more traditional
methods. In addition, the MiniPower circuit will fully discharge the
cells under constant power as recommended for maximum cell life by
