Sometimes we have to just give up and walk away from diagnosing the actual source of a fault or failure, since the available data or number of units needed for observation and evaluation are insufficient.
PCB main-loop ripple current resistive losses are often neglected and overlooked as a switching power supply loss component.
Although its capabilities are far less than those of many advanced transducer interconnections, the decades-old current loop may still be the best choice for many longer-distance, higher-noise situations.
The SEPIC is a nonisolated topology. However, as with a flyback, you can easily add additional transformer windings to create isolated outputs.
This article will discuss constraining specifications for the Altera Arria 10 FPGA, and what they mean for a power supply design.
Most engineers think of motors as rotating arrangements, but some designs need linear motion.
Air cooling of semiconductor assemblies is often aided by the use of a fan, but can you get greater air flow by using two fans in cascade?
Instead of calorimetry for measurement of high-power laser output levels, a contrary approach uses the force of radiation pressure on a highly-reflective mirror.
Equivalent series resistance not only degrades RF performance, but it wastes power and can cause the capacitor to exceed its dissipation rating.
This article aims at contributing to the performance enhancement of brushless DC motor drive systems.
