Looks like a perfect second channel for my single-channel lab PSU to power negative rails and whatnot.
Nice little thing, indeed, the designers knew what they were doing. Noise figures are impressive, too. Shouldn't be too bad in the EMI department, either.

...of course this review came just in time, one day after the aliexpress anniversary sale ended, lol. Starts at $52 now. Still good value for the price, I guess.

There's another thread on this unit here:

User Dexter2 discovered spikes on the output when the output is turned off under a light load using USB-C power supplies:

It seems there is a footprint for a cap on the pcb to mitigate this issue but it was left unpopulated:

The fellow behind the open source "SmartKnob"..
- shows the benefit of WebHID and controlling DP100 from a browser.

Can someone explain me how they use a microcontroller to control mp9928 and make a digitally controlled CC/CV power source. I mean how one can set digitally constant current or constant voltage point
