Synchronous rectifiers can improve power efficiency, particularly in low-voltage, medium power applications. By using power MOSFET with low Ron resistance in parallel with classical diode, the diode function is closely to ldquoideal dioderdquo. The paper presents the simulation results of a full wave rectifier circuits with control circuit made by the known IC (charge pumps, CMOS analogue switches and MOSFETpsilas). The known IC can be used to design a new IC for full wave synchronous rectifier… CONTINUE READING
