using the motherboard of computer to control arduino

by diendea on Mon Sep 21, 2009 5:54 am

I have made a system with 3 motors, lights and a waveshield. Therefor i use now 6 adapters.
Somebody told me you can use the 'motherboard' from a computer for the powersupply. Because it has the connections for 12 volt, 3 volt and 220 volt on it. I want to try this but i dont have a good example or drawing how to do this.

Did anybody did this before? (must be!!) and maybe have a good drawing about the connection from a motherboard to arduino?

thanx Diendea

Can't say I've ever heard of anybody using a motherboard for this, but I have seen plenty of hacks that turned an "ATX power supply" into a "benchtop" power supply, you could try looking for one of those?

hint: put every phrase in quotes into google, then search.
