60V 2MHz Buck-Boost Controllers Regulate High Power Voltage and Current with High Efficiency and Low EMI

Keith Szolusha - Applications Engineering Section Leader Aug 24th 2017
Design Note DN567: Introduction Synchronous buck-boost controllers are versatile and highly efficient. They can produce high power as both a boost and a buck with a single inductor, keeping power supply design simple. Normally, a buck-boost controller in a high power application is operated at a standard or low switching frequency, ...

80V Synchronous 4-Switch Buck-Boost Controller Delivers Hundreds of Watts with 99% Efficiency

Keith Szolusha - Applications Engineering Section Leader
Tage Bjorklund - Senior Applications Eng
Apr 2nd 2014
Introduction A DC/DC converter’s efficiency and component temperature are important considerations in high power applications where high current could overheat the catch diode used in an asynchronous buck or boost topology. Replacing the catch diode with a synchronous switch can significantly improve overall converter ...
