<emphasis role="bold">Introduction</emphasis> As new integrated circuits lead to more electronic functions in smaller packages, it becomes essential for power supplies to become smaller. Power supplies get smaller mainly by increasing their operating frequency to decrease the size of the power transformer and output LC or capacitive filter. Supplies also get smaller by increasing their efficiency so as to require smaller heat sinks.
