Ten tips for designing small and efficient AC/DC switching power supplies
This resource is published by XP Power
The design of AC/DC power supplies is inevitably evolutionary, rather than revolutionary. It develops largely as a result of gradual improvements in semiconductors and passive component technologies and materials. Invariably, power supply design objectives involve not only meeting basic input and output specifications but also meeting them within a given package size and within tight cost constraints.
This whitepaper describes some of the techniques that have worked for us in producing units that both perform to their specifications and meet international standards with respect to EMC performance, safety and input protection.
