Arduino Power Supply 0 - 5V

Braulio777

This project lets you manipulate the voltage from an Arduino microcontroller so you can utilize a power supply from 0 to 5 Volts. For more information about this project, go to the following website: http://www.instructables.com/id/Arduino-Power-Supply-0-5V/

Adjustable 0 to 5 volts BUT what is the maximum current available? It would seem to bed what an ATmega328 pin can deliver, like 20 mA?

Please specify the maximum available current. Thanks

OK, I looked at the schematic. If I'm reading it correctly, one adjusts the voltage with a pot, R2. And the Arduino reads that voltage through A0 and displays it on the LCD.

From the description ( ... "let's you manipulate the voltage from an Arduino ...") I though that I could program the Arduino to, say, output different voltages, like a ramp, or whatever, for testing an external circuit. But the voltage adjustment is manual.

So I think a better description would be something like "This project lets you measure a voltage from 0 to 5 volts, displaying it on an LCD".
