V-Buck converter
Prototype under bench test

Doug Hartley has been bench testing the prototype buck Converter by gradually raising the voltage and load while monitoring the internal voltages.
He is nearly at the required input and output voltages, and hopes to have run the prototype at full voltage and load in the next week or two.He is still very busy at his full time+ job, so the project will have to wait for him to steal time to work on it.
A Custom PC board will be designed for the project once the system components have been firmed up.
The components are designed to allow the device to operate over a wide range of input and output voltages, and retain full adjustable current control.
The plan is to be able to use the system with Civic,Insight1, and Insight2 systems.
