High Power Density DC-DC Converters

Single-chip DC to DC converter next to a quarter to indicate how small it is.

A power system incorporated on a single chip can significantly improve the efficiency, reduce circuit profile, and reduce the cost. In addition, the power density of the power supply can be increased dramatically, which will further reduce the cost and improve performance.

UCF researchers have developed the world’s first low-power switching devices for DC-DC conversion systems to reduce the power loss and significantly increase the over all system efficiency. Researchers are now working on an integrated power supply chip, which includes control circuits, devices, and components.
