    I am trying to determine if my present ac-dc design (attached image) can be tweaked to be used with a 208V input. This means NO NEUTRAL! The 208V input would be two 120V line voltages which are 120 degrees out of phase. So my questions are:

    1) If it is possible, what would I need to do to achieve this?
    2) Does operating without a neutral have any impact on the remaining board electronics (not shown) which currently use the neutral as a common ground?

    Thanks in advance!
