Thanks for a great serries. I thought I knew a lot about this topic and I would say (Humbly) that I do but I am amazed how it has progressed . Thanks Paul, I can begin to be somewhat knowledgible again.
I appreciate knowing about these devices. I had been trying to figure out how to overcome the forward voltage drop of the bridge rectifier at the input (slide 3). I was envisioning round-robin charging capacitors to a few mV and then connecting them in series before emptying them into the load.
Does anyone know of a regulator which is both a step-up and step-down regulator? At one time I was doing a circuit using an ultra cap which decayed from 5V to 0. I wanted to output a constant 3.3V. during the entire decay curve, not just when it was above or below the output voltage.
G'day all ... good class ... Paul N is a good teacher - good choice Anne R Thryft/Design News ...
Paul, would like to see ya write a series of a dozen or so articles and compile them into a neat little how-to booklet ... see if Design News will publish it for ya ... good experience at BBN and Lowell Tech and of course Orchid Tech

Some cars are more reliable than others, but even the vehicles at the bottom of this years Consumer Reports reliability survey are vastly better than those of 20 years ago in the key areas of powertrain and hardware, experts said this week.
Many of the materials in this slideshow are resins or elastomers, plus reinforced materials, styrenics, and PLA masterbatches. Applications range from automotive and aerospace to industrial, consumer electronics and wearables, consumer goods, medical and healthcare, as well as sporting goods, and materials for protecting food and beverages.
While many larger companies are still reluctant to rely on wireless networks to transmit important information in industrial settings, there is an increasing acceptance rate of the newer, more robust wireless options that are now available.
