The Versatile Inductor
By contrast, a device like a DC-DC controller IC has typically been used only for its originally intended purpose. Such a device might be adjustable or programmable for different frequencies, load ranges, or converter modes, but it is safe to say that it is usually used to control a dc-dc converter. Today,

Understanding the Basics of DC-DC Conversion

Figure 1: DC-DC converters can be isolated or non-isolated

When Allesandro Volta made a battery out of copper and zinc disks and brine-soaked cardboard, it was a novelty and the low power DC produced had few practical applications. As electricity became better understood and it was discovered that rotating magnets could induce AC current in wires, the world of power
