In this paper we design and develop a highly stable and low cost regulated DC power supply for Geiger Müller (GM) Counter/detector. A regulated high voltage power supply is an important power source to bias gasdischarge tubes, X-ray tubes, and radiation detectors etc. A highly stabilized regulated 575 volts DC power supply was developed using the pulse width modulation (PWM) control technique from a 5 volt supply. It is specially designed for biasing GM detector for the area radiation monitor.
