Abstract
Switched Mode Power Converters are important building blocks for energy efficient systems. Traditionally we have seen inductive power converter, more recently switched capacitor power converters. Each has their strengths and weaknesses. A new class of hybrid converters tries to combine inductors and capacitors to overcome those weaknesses. This talk presents 4 example designs that show the potential of such hybrids.
