A handbook on the theory and application of switched-mode power supplies. Presents all important established techniques and includes many detailed examples, using manufacturer's actual data sheets. Covers design and use of DC-to-DC power converter circuits, non-isolated DC-to-DC converters, IC controllers for switched-mode power converters, and isolated power converters. Also discusses the radio frequency interface and addresses electromagnetic compatibility problems. A special chapter examines characteristics, circuits, and peculiarities of many of the integrated drive circuits currently available.
