Teardown of an Amrel PPS 35-2 power supply #PowerSupply #Teardown #ReverseEngineering

Kerry D. Wong posts a Teardown of an Amrel PPS 35-2 Programmable Power Supply.

A while back, I did a teardown on a dual-channel Amrel PPS-2322 programmable power supply, and was quite impressed by its solid construction. Recently, I found another Amrel power supply on eBay and this time it is a single channel version (PPS 35-2). Let’s take a look inside this signal channel version and see how much in common it has compared to the dual channel 2322.

The single channel version of the Amrel programmable power supply has front panel sensing terminals making it handy for remote sensing applications. Although the dual channel version has remote sensing capability as well it is only available through wiring at the rear terminal block so it is less convenient.

With further review:

Clearly, this board’s design is shared between both the single channel and the dual channel versions of the power supply. Like the controller board found in the PPS 2322, the processor board contains a CPLD (GAL16V8B) chip, two SRAM chips (MPM81C55P-2 is a 2K SRAM and M58725P is a 16K SRAM), and a 80C31 microprocessor (DMC60C31E, which is essentially a ROM-less 8051).

The NI chip (CP02613) is presumably the GPIB controller (although I could not find any information on this chip). The firmware is stored in the UV-erasable EPROM (the firmware version of my unit is 7.00B).

We are angry, frustrated, and in pain because of the violence and murder of Black people by the police because of racism. We are in the fight AGAINST RACISM. George Floyd was murdered, his life stolen. The Adafruit teams have specific actions we’ve done, are doing, and will do together as a company and culture. We are asking the Adafruit community to get involved and share what you are doing. The Adafruit teams will not settle for a hash tag, a Tweet, or an icon change. We will work on real change, and that requires real action and real work together. That is what we will do each day, each month, each year – we will hold ourselves accountable and publish our collective efforts, partnerships, activism, donations, openly and publicly. Our blog and social media platforms will be utilized in actionable ways. Join us and the anti-racist efforts working to end police brutality, reform the criminal justice system, and dismantle the many other forms of systemic racism at work in this country, read more @ adafruit.com/blacklivesmatter
