A problem is that while everyone agrees that working switching regulators are a good thing, everyone also agrees that they are difficult to get working. Switching regulators, with their high efficiency and small size, are increasingly desirable as overall package sizes shrink. Unfortunately, switching regulators are also one of the most difficult linear circuits to design. Mysterious modes, sudden, seemingly inexplicable failures, peculiar regulation characteristics and just plain ...
