This versatile, amazing dual output (1 positive, 1 negative, same voltage) adjustable power supply can convert from any input voltage between 3.6 to 30V DC and output matching positive and negative from +/- 3V to +/- 30V DC whether the input is at a higher or lower voltage.
I used it successfully to power an S-100 bus card requiring +16V and -16V from a +8V source.
Quote from a satisfied customer – “Thanks for the +/-v psu. I’d just finished a headphone amplifier which required a +/- 12v supply. … Then of cause I came across this buck/boost psu which works a treat. Whats more it fitted in the amplifier box… Job done and sounds great.”
Two examples of current use
1. In 5V 2.25A Out +/- 12V 0.31A
2. In 12V 1.72A Out +/- 5V 1.2A
When adjusting the voltage downwards with no load applied, the -ve will maintain the higher voltage. Power off and short -ve out to gnd and power on and you should see the correct voltage.
I’ve measured ripple at approximately 200kHz at 200mV peak to peak when driving 12V at 300mA.

1 In order to obtain a more stable voltage, it is recommended that the output is greater than 15mA
2 V- cannot be used alone, or no voltage output.But you can just use V+
3 The startup current of the module is 2.5-3 times the operating current.
