Addressing a wide range of high efficiency industrial applications, a family of 300V devices from International Rectifier feature ultra-low Rds(on) to improve system efficiency, and may allow designers
This article is the first of a series in which Dr. Ridley shows the steps involved in designing and building an offline flyback converter. The first part of the series presents the power supply architecture and schematic, including the control and bias circuits.

Properly implemented, galvanic isolation is an effective defense against disturbances in the ground plane often referred to as ground loops, which occur as a result of varying electrical potentials.
Physical limitations require that electrical components on a PCB connect to the ground plane at different
