SMPS: Resonant Converters

Posted by on

Demand for smaller electronics (and thus smaller power supplies) continues to increase. Resonant techniques are used to allow for high-frequency operation in switched-mode power supplies, which in turn allows for smaller components.

Intro to Switched-Mode Power Supplies (SMPS)

Posted by on

A power supply takes an unregulated power and converts it into a stable regulated power. Electronic equipment is generally powered by low voltage DC supplies. The source will be either a battery, a combination of battery and DC/DC converter or a power supply converting AC mains into one or more low voltage DC supplies.
