Phoenix, Arizona - June 8, 1999 - Designers of switching power supplies will get major design assistance using a new SWITCHMODE Power Supply Reference Manual and Design Guide published by Motorola. The new guide is a complete source of both product and design information which will prove useful for anyone interested in designing SWITCHMODE power supplies (SMPS).

The guide offers such a broad range of information, it will prove invaluable for anyone ranging from a new switching power supply designer, to an experienced power supply designer, or a manager responsible for a make / buy decision on power supplies. A SWITCHMODE power supply is a switching power supply designed with Motorola's rugged line of power components.

Written specifically for designers, the book covers the theory of SMPS, examines the fundamentals of designing switching power supplies, lists applications and provides a selector guide of Motorola SMPS products in a clear, concise and easy to read manner. The new reference manual and design guide also contains useful background information on switching power supplies, provides real SMPS examples, highlights several application notes and provides information about design resources available from Motorola. Included, is a list of helpful books from various publishers and useful web sites that provide data on the subject.

Specific power supply applications are detailed with emphasis on applications ranging from 15W to 110W along with the recommended SMPS components for designing. An extensive list with brief descriptions of analog ICs, power transistors, rectifiers and other discrete components available from Motorola is provided. Included on this list is Motorola's newest GREENLINE (tm), Easy Switcher and Very High Voltage ICs (VHVICs) - as well as high efficiency HDTMOS(r) and HVTMOS(r) power FETs and a wide range of discrete products in surface mount packages. Also included is a selector guide for analog and discrete semiconductor components with information on packaging descriptions.
