Introduction, Q&As-lim10-2 -  Application Note __ MiniCircuits.com

Limit Inrush Current In High-Power Applications -  02/03/11  EDN-Design Ideas Protect circuits from high current until a capacitor charges.  A high-power offline supply is nothing more than a half- or full-bridge dc/dc converter.  Rectifying the ac line yields a dc voltage that feeds the converter.  At power-supply turn-on, the bulk capacitor of the uncontrolled rectifier is completely discharged.  It results in a huge charging current for a high instantaneous line voltage because the discharged bulk capacitor temporarily short-circuits the diodes of the rectifier stage. Design by JB Castro-Miguens, Cesinel, Madrid, Spain, and C Castro-Miguens, University of Vigo, Vigo, Spain


Limit Inrush Current In Low- to Medium-Power Applications -  11/04/10 EDN-Design Ideas A MOSFET and IGBT guide current to safe places. Design by JB Castro-Miguens, Cesinel, Madrid, Spain and C Castro-Miguens, University of Vigo, Vigo, Spain

Limit switches control dc-motor H bridge -  03/05/09  EDN-Design Ideas Mechanical and electronic switches provide interlocks, preventing motors from overrunning their bounds Design by Andreas Grün, Wedemark, Germany

Limiting Amplifier is Digitally Programmable -  06/04/98 EDN-Design Ideas To generate high voltages with proper insulation between  "hot node" and  rest of  circuitry, a car ignition coil can function in place of a high-voltage transformer.  se coils have voltage ratings of approximately 20 kV,. Design by V Manoharan, Naval Physical and Oceanographic Laboratory, Kochi, India


Limiting Amplifier Makes Efficient A/D-Converter Drive -  09/02/96 EDN-Design Ideas  Limiting amplifiers are useful for protecting circuitry that has a limited input range.  A classic example is an input buffer for an A/D converter.  Many A/D converters are susceptible to damage if the input significantly exceeds the specified range.  In addition Design by Mark Amarandos, Harris Semiconductor, Costa Mesa, CA
