The Essential Guide to Power Supplies

23 March 2016 Technical Literature

Written by XP Power’s technical director, Gary Bocock, as a technical guide for equipment design engineers and specifiers of power supplies, this 156-page guide is a reader-friendly reference for understanding all major aspects of AC-DC power supplies, DC-DC converters and their integration into today’s electronic equipment. The guide outlines recent changes in legislation for safety and energy efficiency, including the new requirements for CE marking, the latest Level VI energy efficiency specification and the EU Code of Conduct. In addition, it gives details on the new IEC 62368 standard that replaced IEC 60950 in 2014.
