App note: High voltage inverting buck reduces complexity and board space

Sunday, September 16th, 2018

App note from ON semiconductors about repurposing a buck converter to produce negative voltages. Link here (PDF) Applications in the electronics industry ranging from sensor−based designs to power amplifiers are periodically faced with the requirement to generate a negative voltage rail. Although many transformer−based designs, charge pumps and other methods...

App Note: Non-isolated 360mA buck DC/DC converter

Saturday, November 19th, 2011

This buck converter design uses the LinkSwitch-TN IC to output DC directly from rectified mains outlet.  It converts mains high voltage to smaller DC voltages suitable for electronics devices, and has the ability to output up to 360mA of current. It's based on the standard buck topology, except that the...
