supplies. You'll find information on switching supply operation and selecting an appropriate topology for your application. There's extensive coverage of buck, boost, flyback, push-pull, half bridge, and full bridge regulator circuits. Special attention is given to semiconductors used in switching supplies. RFI/EMI reduction, grounding, testing, and safety standards are also detailed. Numerous design examples and equations are given and discussed. Even if your primary expertise is in logic or microprocessor engineering, you'll be able to design a power supply that's right for your application with this essential guide and reference! Gives special attention to resonant switching power supplies, a state-of-the-art trend in switching power supply designApproaches switching power supplies in an organized way beginning with the advantages of switching supplies and thier basic operating principlesExplores various configurations of pulse width modulated (PWM) switching supplies and gives readers ideas for the direction of their designsEspecially useful for practicing design engineers whose primary specialty is not in analog or power engineering fields
