My Jung SuperReg PCB
2 Attachment(s)
This is my first desing of a PCB for the Jung SuperReg. The desing is from ALW site, see

Using this schematic and some others on the web, and also all the discussion that I red on this forum, I came up with this first version of the PCB. There is a complete ground plane on the top of the PCB. A small schematic showing the parts number and the connexion names will follow.

Any Comments will be welcome.

Jung Reg PCB with GND Plane

Here with the ground plane.

Q1 and IC1 Spacing
The spacing between Q1 and IC1 was chosen so I can install these heatsink: Aavid TO-220 Heatsink,Gold Digikey HS132-ND, or bolt them directly to a frame.

The Schematic I used

Here the schematic that I used. Sorry for the zip/pdf file. It was too big for the gif and screen format of this site.

Thanks for the link to the ALW site. I hadn't read it before. And congrats to Andy W on a great site!

I looked at your schematic from the zip file, and if I understand the description of the regulator/pre-regulator connection from the ALW site correctly, the pre-reg is actually supposed to stack on top of the output of the super-reg. In other words, what's shown as GND of the LM317 portion of the circuit should really be floating on top of OP1/OP2. The pre-reg is set for 2.5 Volts output (gain of 2 to a 1.23 Volt bandgap reference), so I think the idea is to have it produce 2.5 Volts VCE for Q1.

From Andy W's site:
"The Kelvin sense point TRS1 or TRS2 is connected to the regulator output (OP1 or OP2), the pre-regulator output is then connected to the Super Regulator input (TROUT to SRIN). The raw +ve supply is then fed in on TRIN, the tracking regulator input."

Pre-Reg purpose
2 Attachment(s)
Further in ALW very good article, he mentionned that the pre-reg output is then set: "2.5V above the super-reg output". This is why the Pre-Reg resistors are set for 2.5V.

Here the other schematic that I used. It is showing very clearly the pre-reg connexion. It used it also to configure the gnd star points. The differents gnd points are very well explained.

Jung Connexion

This other excellent schematic, still from ALW site, is showing how the JUNG reg PCB is connected. You see the jumpers installed.

What's the point of re-posting all of ALW stuff? He has everything freely downloadable on his site? Also ALW sells the stuff for real cheap.
Buy the guy a beer for god sakes! ;)

Why the post
I just produce an Eagle version of the PCB so others DIY can use it if they like. This is also a compilation, at just one place, of the numerous pages I had to read/search throught to get everything right. Just to get the negative version of the Jung reg (Not on ALW site by the way :clown: ) took me more time than necessary :scratch:. I didn't mean any disrespect for ALW works. Since I don't know ALW real implentation of his PCB and parts choice, and that I used only freely available info on the web to produce this compilation, I tried not to hurt any body feeling.

DIY is also building thing by ourself, for our own use ;). Even if the ALW regulators are available (and I didn't know they were since I couldn't find any order/prices info on ALW's site :cannotbe: ), I would had build my own. It is also probably cheaper for me since I will use a lot of parts that I have in stock to build it...

Just by the comment of Andy_C, that didn't know about ALW site, I will probably help ALW get more sell and more traffic on his web site.

Corrected PCB
2 Attachment(s)
I found a few mistakes and did a few changes (isolated so more gnd traces, rotated parts to reduce trace lenght).

The EaglePCB file is available. Bye...
