Burst-Mode Operation: A Double-Edged Sword

Introduction

In response to ever evolving power supply efficiency standards, power supply manufacturers are using burst-mode operation (amongst a sea of other energy saving strategies) to decrease the standby power consumption of external power adaptors. Efficient conversion techniques do not come without some cost. Burstmode operation can have adverse, and often unforeseen effects on RF emissions and on end-product compatibility. This article will provide a brief overview of the potential issues and some possible solutions.  Read more (view pdf) >>
