Battery Powered Plus-Minus 15v Supply  --    Aug 31, 2008
designed by David A. Johnson, P.E

Many classic operational Amplifier circuits call for a split positive and negative 15 volt supply.  The circuit below makes the job of generating such a supply much easier by using an off-the-shelf DC to DC converter, powered from a cheap 6v battery made from four AA cells.
The converter, part number VESD1-S5-D15-SIP, is available from Digikey, their catalog number 102-1410, for about $6.00.  To insure clean voltages, I follow the output of the converter with two voltage regulators, also available from Digikey.  The result is a very nice supply rated at 30ma from each supply voltage.  This should be plenty of current for most circuits.
