New Video on Building Power Supplies with TOPSwitch and TinySwitch

February 26th, 2014

Building verses buying a power supply saves money, but also ensures you're getting exactly what you need for your application. To help engineers understand these and other advantages, PI has just produced a new demo on building your own power supply with PI's TOPSwitch and TinySwitch ICs.

Included in the video are:

  • Steps for selecting the right IC for your power supply
    • Using TinySwitch for simple low-power designs
    • Using TOPSwitch for higher-power designs requiring protection features
  • Reducing design time with PI Expert Design Software
    • Inputting your requirements to produce fully functional designs with customized schematics, full transformer documentation, and a complete bill of materials
    • Resources for prototyping and assembling your power supply
