Switchmode Power Supply

Switchmode Power Supply

Switchmode Power SupplyA switchmode regulated power supply regulates the output voltage by the use of a complex high frequency switching technique. A switchmode power supply has moderately good load and line regulation, but significantly higher ripple and output noise than linear regulated power supplies. A switchmode power supply also has a slow transient response, but high efficiency.
