Introduction

Automotive, distributed power and battery-powered applications often operate at a voltage that is derived from a widely variable bus voltage. Frequently the operating voltage falls somewhere in the middle of the bus voltage range, such as a 12V automotive operating voltage, from a 4V to 18V bus. These applications require a DC/DC converter that can step up or step down, depending on the voltage present on the bus. Flyback and SEPIC designs are commonly used single-switch ...
