Toroidal Transformer

5 Benefits of Using a Toroidal Transformer

Toroidal transformers are favored as long-term solutions for multiple reasons, due to their high efficiency. The small size and light weight are major factors that add to their high quality performance. They are about half the size and weight of more traditional toroids, making them ideal for compact power supplies.

Ferrite Core Transformers

Ferrite Core Transformers: Types and Benefits

Transformers are driven by the flux linkage between primary, secondary and tertiary windings. For maximum performance, the transformer provides one low reluctance magnetic path, usually in the core. Here are considerations on how different materials are used for different types of ferrite core transformers.

Electronic Silicon Diode

What Are the Characteristics of an Ideal Silicon Diode?

A diode is an electrical switch commonly made of semiconductor material, such as silicon. It consists of two terminals: positive (anode) and negative (cathode). It is often used as a rectifier, which is a device that converts AC to DC with current flowing in one direction. Rectifiers can be found in electronic components such as radios, DC power supplies and high-voltage transmitters. Diodes take on many forms, such as vacuum tube diodes, semiconductor diodes and mercury-arc valves. A diode operates in conjunction with a resistor within a circuit.
