2 Watt Switching Power Supply: from 6V to14V

5 Volt DC From RS232 Signals: The circuit of Figure1 produces a semi-regulated5-Volt output from an RS-232 port. Unlike a PC-mouse supply or comparable  that rely on the modem-control signals DTR and RTS, this one operates with a3-wire port GND, Rx, and TX, and obtains power only from the TX line. The output current-about 8mA-is sufficient for CMOS microcontrollers and other low-power .

6 to 12 Volt Converter: This circuit can provide up to 800mA of12V power from a 6V supply. The circuit is simple, about 75% efficient and quite useful.

Circuit offers improved active rectification: EDN-Design Ideas / Rectifiers convert ac signals to dc. You can combine a diode and a load resistor to create a half-wave rectifier, provided that the amplitude of the ac source is much larger than the forward drop of the diode (typically 0.6V). Unfortunately, you can't use this method to rectify signals that are smaller than a diode drop...

Method provides self timing for synchronous rectifiers: 05/16/2002  EDN - Design Ideas /    Synchronous rectifiers are MOSFETs, driven in such a way as to perform a rectifying function. They often take the place of diodes in the output-rectification stage of switching power converters, because of their lower on-state power loss. In power circuits, synchronous rectifiers are often complicated to use because of timing issues..

Step Down Rectifier Makes a Simple DC Power Supply: EDN-Design Ideas -  A simple and useful nonisolated rectifier features voltage step-down operation, acceptable Class A line-current harmonics, inherent short-circuit protection, and, optionally, a regulated output

Transformer less Mains Power Supply: This power supply does not really excel in power efficiency, but it is the cheapest and most compact solution for a small power supply. Note that the low voltage output is directly connected to the mains; it cannot be used when the low voltage part can be touched. With the component values of the schematic, the circuit can supply12V /15mA max.
