Negative Voltage Inverter

Here's a super quicky for your Saturday. Got a request over on Facebook for a simple voltage inverter using the 1044/7660 chipset. Great for when you need to power a positive ground effect like PNP Fuzz Faces and Tone Benders but still want to daisy chain it with negative ground effects or not use a battery.

    1. Cut the trace between pins 1 and 8 if your using a 1054. Otherwise I think that's all the modification you'd need to do. Double check the datasheets though.

  2. My voltage inverter doesn't work. I can't understand what is wrong. There is no voltage on output
