Welcome to this installment of EE Classroom on Power Supplies
The growing demand for power supplies is fueled by markets across the board but the medical power supply market, in particular, is seeing especially strong growth. An increase focus in home healthcare equipment such as PAP devices, infusions pumps, pulse oximeters and other devices used in home care settings, as well as the launch of innovative medical power supply products are all contributing to a surge in power supplies overall. What do you need to know to choose? What are key considerations? How do you protect sensitive devices?
We are confident you’ll find answers to at least some of your questions with the resources in this classroom. Knowing that an electronics design engineer is not necessarily a power electronics engineer, we’ve included some back-to-basics around Power Factor Correction, power supply self-protection, different types of power supplies, and flyback converters. Is efficiency and EMC and EMI compliance keeping you up at night? Tuck in with some application notes and tutorials — it’s the stuff dreams are made of. Try finishing your day by digitally leafing through technical white papers on isolated dc-dc converters and their use in medical applications or “The AC/DC and DC/DC Book of Knowledge”.
