Overview

The Power Supply Cookbook is organized in such a way as to permit any knowledgeable person to design a complicated power supply to fit his or her needs in less than 8 hours. It covers every phase of design from magnetics design and feedback loop compensation design to RFI/EMI control. In addition, this practical reference provides common industry design approaches with explanations for ease of implementation. No other book discusses the noise and layout issues involved in a design and then weaves its importance into practical design examples.

Want to know how those new, strange looking switching power supplies work? Skimming this book is certainly one very nice way to learn their functions. Want to try designing your own, with a reasonable probability of success? Just follow the cookbook!
From the Publisher
...a practical, "start-to-finish" design reference. It is organized to allow both seasoned and inexperienced engineers to quickly find and apply the information they need.

Fortunately, for those of us with little switching-mode power supply experience, two basic configuration are shown to begin the design sections. Basic schematics and waveforms, with simplified equations, introduce the forward-more converter and the boost-mode converter. Thus, the flow chart on the following page, used to guide you to a complete design, now makes sense. - QST

Meet the Author

Marty Brown is the author of the Power Supply Cookbook and Practical Switching Power Supply Design. He earned his amateur radio license at the age of 11 and has had electronics as a hobby throughout his life. He graduated cum laude from Drexel University in 1974. His electronic design history includes underwater acoustics with the department of the Navy, airborne weather radar design (digital and SMPS), a satellite CODEC, and process control equipment. He was previously with Motorola Semiconductor as a principle application engineer, where he defined more than eight semiconductor products in the power conversion market and received two patents. He later started his own electronics consulting firm where he designed products from satellite power systems to power-related integrated circuits for many semiconductor companies. He is presently working in the field of digitally-controlled power supplies with Microchip Technologies. He has eight children, five of whom are adopted. His wife is an internationally known writer and speaker in the area of inter-racial adoption and related issues. He presently lives in Scottsdale, Arizona.
