The input power source could be rechargeable AA batteries. Let’s make an environment friendly 12V/130mA power supply!
Step 1: Design the Prototype
First I etched four PCBs for the prototype using a PCB design software and some other tools. The PCBs are very small (4cmX2cm) because components need to be solder as close as to the IC; because of the performance issues. I made ground copper track as wide as possible.
Now my prototype works fine and I decided to make the PCB in large quantity. I did some changes and sent my PCB file to a local PCB production company and first I got 100 pieces of PCBs. The PCBs are in good quality with solder spots and copper shield; easy to solder.
