The global trends - such as digitalization and energy efficiency - that have emerged and accelerated in the past few years pose new challenges to the manufacturers as well as the semiconductor market. Developing power semiconductor devices that contribute to highly efficient power management systems is on the ag
Figure 1: One-Stage Approach: The driver converts an AC-rectified line voltage to the necessary DC current through a flyback transformer and filter. Unfortunately, the rectified voltage contains ripple at twice the line frequency (100 or 120 Hz).

For some designs, reducing circuit-board power dissipation by 25% to 30% would just be a nice outcome. For other designs, it's an absolute necessity.
