App note: Diode turn-on time induced failures in switching regulators

Posted on Saturday, October 6th, 2012 in app notes by DP

Last week we wrote about fast diodes for switching regulators, this week Niklas points us to a video on the topic narrated by Jim Williams, the late analog electronics guru.

    Jim Williams is sorely missed.

    This link is interesting (transcript, 2006): “Interview with Bob Dobkin and Jim Williams”
