    Hi,

    I have an 24V DC adapter and i need to get a +15V and -15V as my Vcc and Vss for my circuits. I have 7815 as well as 7915 voltage regulators. Can i know how can i obtain +15V and -15V by using the 24V DC adapter as the input?

    If there is a common [0V] rail for the +15V & -15V rails then you can't do it. You need a DC source with at least 35V and then you also need a means of creating the required common rail. You could use two 24V DC adapter supplies however.

    is there something preventing you from buying a switchmode converter?

    What kind of application is this. If it is hobbyist project simply add another power supply. They do not have to be equal

    In some cases the negative supply is more or less a bias supply -- low current. If so a charge pump ( maybe even with a 555 timer ) can be a solution. Also note that computer supplies give + - 12 ( lower current on neg side ) and can be usefully adapted. Many hits on google and instructables.

    i need to build a prototype for my project.. the +15V and -15V from 24VDC is just my Vcc and Vss to supply for my other IC in the circuit. Is there any simplest way to get a +15V and -15V from a single power supply 24VDC? i had tried using 7815 and 7915 from a single power supply 24VDC.. the problem is i can simulate it no problem in Proteus but when i testing in practical i cant get -15V from 7915.. any idea?

    These provide an isolated 15v DC output from a 9-18 volt DC source:

    Feed them with 7815's or the like if the load is only a few op amps.

    You can't beat the price. Sticker on these is $60 ea.
