Common mistakes in flyback power supplies and how to fix them

Learn some of the most common mistakes in the design and troubleshooting of flyback power supplies.

When you run into a problem in your power-supply design, the odds are that someone else has already solved the same problem on another design. Wouldn’t it be great if you could learn from their mistakes? This five-part video series focuses on some of the most common mistakes in the design and troubleshooting of low-power AC/DC power supplies, specifically focusing on the flyback topology.

Presenting the material in an engaging and interactive format promotes brainstorming and the logical thought processes needed to be successful at debugging power supplies. This video series presents the symptoms of each problem, followed by possible causes, solutions and tips on how to avoid similar issues.

Why should I take this training?

  • Many concepts are not unique to the flyback, and can be applied to other topologies
  • These design challenges can serve as an introduction to isolated power supplies

What will I learn?

  • Critical debugging skills
  • Tips and tricks on a wide variety of topics including startup, protection, thermal management, gate drive, layout, compensation and much more
