Can anyone point me in the direction of high amperage 5 volt power supplies?

    Say power factor corrected and 10 amps capability.

    Also, any pointers on how to adjust power supply voltage and current
    independantly with a microcontroller would be helpfull, I know atmel
    and pic very well, so anything in those assemblers would be ideal.

    ** Groper alert !

    ** A 50 watt PSU does not need PFC.

    Total wank.

    ** Not even possible.

    If you adjust the voltage - the load determines the current flow.

    If you adjust the current LIMIT - the load will determine the voltage.

    ** Some Lab DC Supplies have remote control of output voltage and current
    limiting by a 0-10 volts signal.

    Use Google to locate them.

    Won't be cheap.
