Switching and IC Voltage Regulators

Learning Objectives

  • In Chapter 3, we discussed Voltage Regulators that use discrete components.
  • In this Chapter, we describe Voltage Regulators that use integrated components, ICs, considering advancement of technologies and miniaturisation of components.
  • We also learn the design aspects of regulator circuits.
  • Standby energy sources such as UPS and SMPS are also described, which are quite popular at the times of power failure for commercial and domestic needs.
14.1 Introduction

14.1.1 IC Voltage Regulators

Electronic circuits need DC power supply. Voltage Regulator circuits provide constant DC output voltages over the designed range of loads and input voltages. IC Voltage Regulators are technologically ...
