How did you design this power supply?

Which software did you use? Looks good. 😀

Just never heard it referrer to as a SMPS.   Seems like I just remember calling them switching power supplies.

@sumanta

So yes the ATX power supply is a switching power supply.  It is in a particular form with the proper connectors for a PC motherboard.  The purpose of the video was  to demonstrate how you could modify an existing ATX power supply into a bench power supply, which will of course still be a switching power supply.

You can of course buy many switching supplies with either 24, 12, 5, or other voltages.  This is just a example of a project repurposing something you may just have laying around.
