Easy to Build High-Performance, High Reliability Isolated Power Supply

September 11, 2012 // By Bruce Haug, Linear technology
Prefabricated isolated DC/DC converters and modules offer a simple but relatively expensive solution to efficiently convert distribution bus voltages to isolated low voltages. However, off-theshelf designs may not have all the required features, so a custom design is needed in many applications. Build-your-own solutions using discrete PWM controllers are much less expensive and provide the flexibility to meet demanding requirements such as special form factors or nonstandard input and output voltages.
