Here we show the waveform of a zero-voltage switching (ZVS) inductive heating circuit and the thermal profile in operation. A typical buck regulator DC-DC is challenging to design when there is a significant voltage difference between the input and the output voltages. A significant voltage difference typically increases switching losses and limits the device’s switching […]
