The market size for high brightness (HB) LEDs is expected to reach $12 billion in 2012 and grow to $20.2 billion by 2015 with a 30.6% CAGR ramp (source: Strategies Unlimited). One of the key application
The need to reduce active-mode power consumption is somewhat obvious. What has not been so obvious is the need to minimize power drain in standby and no-load when products are essentially doing nothing.
Rutronik Elektronische Bauelemente officially joins the China Electronics Distributor Alliance (CEDA) after approval by the CEDA executive board members. CEDA is a non-profit organization that delivers
The usage of LEDs in automotive applications continues to grow due to their longer service life and lower power consumption. Simultaneously, the diversity and size of integrated state-of-the-art instrument
Going from lanterns to LEDs, in a nutshell, describes the course of development in automotive lighting since cars first came on the scene 100 years ago. What originally served only a functional purpose
This article is the fourth of a series in which Dr. Ridley shows the steps involved in designing and building an offline flyback converter. The power transformer is added to the circuit, and the current sensing and snubbers are designed to operate at full power without excessive stress on the components.
