On the schematic for the 5V power supply there is a line voltage
output labelled ALG12. It is not a highly regulated output like the
+5V part of the supply. This voltage is used all over the board so I
don't think this was special for the thermistors. The 5V is regulated
using a LAS6330 and is only used to power the chips and provide high
state logic. Various other circuit are powered from this feed.
What would a divide by 2 divider network look like and what values
for the resistors ?
