DC to DC Converter Performance Testing

In this application note, we introduce the important performance characteristics of DC to DC converters and testing methods. The testing circuits and operation are also discussed. Note that the importance of each performance characteristic is dependent on the end application. As such, more detailed testing and methods may be warranted. This is left to the […]

High Performance Heat-spreader for Heatsink

Using heat sink specification provided by manufacturers requires understanding of thermal design. Most design engineer not trained in heat transfer can erroneously rely on the published specifications for heat-sink selection. The heat flux present at the semiconductor transfer surface can reduce the published performance specification due to thermal resistance of the material at the mating […]
