The addition of questions at the end of each chapter as well as electronic simulation tools has allowed for a more practical, user-friendly text.Provides a practical design guide to both analog and digital electronic filters Includes electronic simulation toolsKeeps heavy mathematics to a minimum
This newly revised edition is a practical, "start-to-finish" design reference. It is organized to allow both seasoned and inexperienced engineers to quickly find and apply the information they need. Features of the new edition include updated information on the design of the output stages, selecting the controller IC, and other functions associated with power supplies, such as: switching power supply control, synchronization of the power supply to an external source, input low voltage inhibitors, loss of power signals, output voltage shut-down, major current loops, and paralleling filter capacitors. It also offers coverage of waveshaping techniques, major loss reduction techniques, snubbers, and quasi-resonant converters.Guides engineers through a step-by-step design framework for a wide variety of power supplies, many of which can be designed in less than one dayProvides easy-to-understand information about often complicated topics, making power supply design a much more accessible and enjoyable process
