Core Independent Brushless DC Fan Control

This application note describes a core-independent method of using an AVR® device to control a simple BLDC fan. Many peripherals are configured to work together, enabling the Configurable Custom...

DC/DC Converter Controller Using a PICmicro Microcontroller

  In many applications, a DC/DC Converter is used to produce a regulated voltage or current, derived from an unregulated power supply, or from a battery. Examples of these applications...

DPA-Switch™ DC-DC Forward Converter Design Guide

The single-ended forward converter topology is usually the best solution for DC-DC applications in industrial controls, Telecom central office equipment, digital feature phones, and systems that use distributed power architectures. ...

Using the ISL6430 in DC-DC Converters for Microprocessors in Gateway Applications

Today’s high-performance microprocessors present many challenges to their power source. High power consumption, low bus voltages, and fast load changes are the principal characteristics which have led to the need...

Designing Applications with MCP16331 High-Input Voltage Buck Converter

The purpose of this document is to help engineers design different low-power applications and provide insight on how simple non-synchronous buck converters can be used to develop solutions for non-typical...

Load Share Controller For N+1 Redundant, Hot-Swappable Application

Load sharing is a technique commonly used when powering loads requiring low voltage and high current; for this reason a modular power system is built where two (or more) power...

Half Bridge LLC Resonant Converter Design using ICE1HS01G

This application note describes how to design half bridge LLC resonant converter using ICE1HS01G, which is an 8-pin LLC controller developed by Infineon Technologies. ICE1HS01G is specially designed for applications...

Emergency Lighting Systems and Battery Powered Fluorescent Lighting

Battery powered fluorescent lighting is an important application area that significantly benefits from the low saturation voltage exhibited by Zetex Super-β transistors. These transistors replace the TO126 and TO220 types...

White LED Driver Circuits for Off-Line Applications using Standard PWM Controllers

As high-efficiency ultra-bright white LEDs come down in cost, they are approaching cost parity with conventional mercury vapour, HID quartz metal halide and high/low pressure sodium lighting on a cost...

DRV3201 Boost Converter

The DRV3201 boost converter is used to drive the external power MOSFETs. This type of converter allows the DRV3201 to continue full operation of the external bridges down to a...
