Tag: DC-DC converter

A buck converter (step-down converter) is a DC-to-DC power converter used to step down voltage, while stepping up current. It is a type of switched-mode power supply (SMPS) comprising of two semiconductors components, and an energy storage element. Capacitor...
Diodes Incorporated, a leading global manufacturer and supplier of high-quality application specific standard products within the broad discrete, logic, analog and mixed-signal semiconductor markets, today introduced the AP7381. Operating from a wide input voltage spanning 3.3V to 40V, this...
Input voltages below 60V are considered to be safe to touch. Still, there remains a need for isolation in this operating range. After all, the power-supply electronic load is typically a delicate and expensive microcontroller, so it’s important to...
Single-chip ISL95338 replaces two converters, enables USB PD3.0 bidirectional voltage regulation for tablets, ultrabooks and power banks. Milpitas, Calif., Oct. 10, 2017 – Intersil, a subsidiary of Renesas Electronics Corporation, today announced the industry’s first buck-boost voltage regulator for tablets,...
This video covers the basics of linear voltage regulators - what they do, how to wire them up, and where to find them. Then I give a basic example of how to build a 5V supply that can be...
