Analog Devices Inc. ADALM2000 Power Booster Board

Analog Devices Inc. ADALM2000 Power Booster Board is an ADALM2000 add-on board that increases the output current capability up to 700mA. This board can be also used as a standalone benchtop power supply with positive and negative outputs. The ADALM2000 power booster board is an SB type C powered board that is capable of increasing the output current of ADALM2000’s power supplies. This power booster board operates in M2K and POT modes. The ADALM2000 power booster board operates from a 5.1V 3A USB type C power adapter or a lab supply using the screw terminal connector. Typical applications include general-purpose electronic systems, educational applications, and automated test equipment.

M2K and POT mode

Schematic - Analog Devices Inc. ADALM2000 Power Booster Board

The M2K mode allows the board to be plugged into ADALM2000. The programable user supplies of ADALM2000 can be used as usual and will source more current. The jumper on the connector P7 must be in M2K- position and the jumper on the connector P6 must be in the M2K+ position.

The POT mode allows the board to be used as a standalone benchtop power supply. The output voltage is adjusted with potentiometers R19 and R20 and will be available at the V+ and V- pins.


  • ADALM2000 compatible
