RECOM´s DC/DC Book of Knowledge is a detailed introduction to the various DC/DC converter topologies, feedback loops (analogue and digital), test and measurement, protection, filtering, safety, reliability, constant current drivers and DC/DC applications. The level is necessarily technical, but readable for engineers, designers and students.
The function of any AC/DC or DC/DC converter module is to meet one or more of the following requirements:
- To match the secondary load to the primary power supply
- To provide isolation between primary and secondary circuits
- To provide protection against the effects of faults, short circuit or over heating
- To simplify compliance with safety, performance or EMC legislation.
