cool.
datel has a dc/dc-converter searchengine :)

http://www.datel-europe.com/en/products/search/

what about:
http://www.datel.com/data/power/uns10-15w.pdf
for 5.0V -> 3.3V power conversion ?

did i read that someone runs his 8mb-modded AJB ~17hrs ?
i`m excited how long it would run with an 1.8" HDD

:D

regards
roland

ps:
just having fun "brainstorming" about such stuff :)
