    What are you trying to heat and how much power do you need?

    You have a couple of options. If you want to roll your own, here is my open source 1500 watt heater here. Fluxeon offers A/T boards, bare boards and kits for this heater.

    If you want one ready-made then http://www.fluxeon.com makes a very nice one (claimer: I'm the Chief Engineer of Fluxeon and designed this heater).

    Hope this helps.

    It looks like the miniductor from the inductor uses more or less the exact same circuit as neonjohn's "roy".
