  1. Closed: Re: overcurrent and reverse polarity protection

    This is a great opportunity to learn a simulation tool.

    Download LTspice.
  2. Closed: Re: Half-Bridge 0-30V, 0-20A Feedback loop problem

    Yeah the switching waveforms look ok.

    Another suggestion: Run open voltage loop. Reconfigure the eamp as a fixed voltage follower. This will isolate eamp problems from other problems.


    For...
  3. Closed: Re: Half-Bridge 0-30V, 0-20A Feedback loop problem

    Type III compensation should follow standard practice: two zeros placed in front of the LC cutoff, 2 poles following later. Intersil has the best app note...

    Closed: Re: Shortcircuit protection circuit

    I second the complaint about editing time frames.


    Also I'm going to plug integrated 'load switch'/'hot swap' solutions for this 24V application one more time.

    For 5V (usb), 12V or 24V at low...

    Closed: Re: MAX485 ground isolation

    Yes, isolation can solve a lot of problems.

    To be clear the maxm22511 includes an isolated DC-DC.

    If you already have a power source on each side choose a cheaper isolated 485 IC such as...

    Closed: Re: MAX485 ground isolation

    There are many isolated RS-485 solutions which could solve a lot of problems including some new integrated power ICs:

    MAXM22511

    And search "isolated RS-485"

    Closed: Re: 1.5kva pure sine wave inverter

    Yeah this is going to be a monster.

    20Khz is slow and will result in a huge inductor. Why not higher switching frequency?

    Multiple phases would also be a common approach to this problem.

    Closed: Re: Simple Power Supply with Noise Problems

    Wait, let's be really clear. When you say "The noise is 'real' - grounding does nothing" does that mean you still saw the noise after grounding the probe tip?

    I meant you should leave your probe...

    Closed: Re: Simple Power Supply with Noise Problems

    The noise is at 40khz and your switching is at 40khz so it's switching noise correct?

    First figure out of its 'real' by tying your scope probe to ground and see if its scope noise or common mode...

    Closed: Re: Shortcircuit protection circuit

    So you have a 24V supply and you want to protect its output from short circuits?

    The good news is that there are many IC's that will do this by acting like a 'smart fuse'. You want to search...
  12. Closed: Re: Misconceptions and flaws noticed by the more educated...

    I'll use this as an example to re-iterate my point that a single model doesn't need to explain everything for everyone.

    A BJT can be usefully modeled as voltage controlled -> Good for some things...

    Look at EPC GAN fets:

    This half bridge demo board demonstrates 1.3nS rise times at 48V/4A.
  14. Closed: Re: TL431 temperature compensation method question

    Yeah to echo what Klauss said where is this reference going?

    Every part it touches needs to be in the 10ppm territory if this ref is going to help you. That means expensive resistors or matched...
  15. Closed: Re: TL431 temperature compensation method question

    Yeah, not too hard to find a better reference.

    And don't forget the resistor drift.

    It's better in terms of cost/performance to get a fixed voltage reference than to buy low PPM resistors...
  16. Closed: Re: The simplest definition of VOLTAGE you can come up with

    I don't know about definition but the best analogy in my mind is pressure or force.

    Closed: Re: Optimizing case statement with large input

    These two examples will produce identical hardware. By default consider it a mux but as FvM points out the synthesizer will optimize further based on what's in the case/if statements.

    Closed: Re: if/else vs. if/if in combo logic

    Yes they will synthesize to the same thing.

    I'm personally ok using that coding style but only if there is a reason. In this toy example the first example is better practice. But sometimes the...
  19. Closed: Re: Misconceptions and flaws noticed by the more educated...

    A voltage also needs to have a current. Either in the form of leakage or the parasitic C of the node must have been charged with current in the past.


    As another aside I think it's important to...
  20. Closed: Re: Misconceptions and flaws noticed by the more educated...

    This isn't exactly education but a common practical mistakes I see new people making is that they trust what they see.

    If you measure a node and the multimeter reads 5.2V it means the node you...

    And what’s the efficiency? Do you think it’s better or worse compared to a boost or totem pole pfc paired with an LLC or full bridge?

    What other details are you willing to share about that?
  25. Closed: Re: Best topology DCDC adjustable output

    To be clear I think theory is important. There is a fine line between education and training and I believe schools should focus on education first.

    But I think many fail that. Theory is like a...
