ASICs, FPGAs, and processors in high-performance communication, servers, and computing systems require core power supplies that can produce voltages of 1.0 V (or less) directly from a 12 V or intermediate bus—with maximum load currents sometimes above 200 A. These supplies must meet stringent efficiency and pe
