Chapter 11

Selecting Components for LED Drivers

Abstract

This chapter talks about choosing the best components in a power supply. Components published characteristics are discussed, but there is also discussion about “hidden” parasitic elements that are always present. Examples are: capacitance between wires in the coil of an inductor; resistance of wires and plates used to make a capacitor; inductance of tracks on a circuit board. All of these have effects and these are discussed in this chapter.
