Build Your Own Low-Noise 48V Regulated Power Supply
Here is a low-ripple and low-noise 48V regulated phantom power supply for an audio preamplifier and driver. Such power supplies require well-filtered, low-ripple and low-noise output voltage with current less than 200mA. These are relatively rare and expensive. Presented here is a simple and low-cost solution suitable for many applications including test equipment and audio applications
