This is a rigorous, carefully explained and motivated “beginner’s bible” to power supply design. Between dense, mathematical textbooks on power electronics and tiny power supply “cookbooks” there exists no practical tutorial on the hazards of contemporary power supply design. Our Pressman book, the 800 lb gorilla in the field, is both mathematically dense and 7 years old. This new book, detailing cutting edge thermal management techniques, grouping key design equations in a special reference section, and containing a concise Design FAQ, will serve both as an invaluable tutorial and quick reference.
Sanjaya Maniktala is a Principal Engineer with National Semiconductor. He holds two patents in power supply technology and has written numerous articles on power supply design, appearing in such magazines as Power Electronics Technology, EDN, Electronic Engineering, and Planet Analog. He lives in Fremont, California.
