    voltage Stability factor of voltage regulation circuits

    Here a shunt voltage regulator circuit with two zener diodes One zener diode Z give the reference voltage at the comparator for the feedback signal . But I can't explain the role of the second zener diode Z1 I've to calculate Voltage Stability factor (Sv) . Any Suggestion is welcome.

    Tips for bipolar power supply

    Hello, I need to design a linear regulated supply to power an dac output stage based on op amp. It must be a negative + ground + positive one. The problem I encounter is that I don't know wich topology to select between the first and second arrangement. I suppose that the first one induce a...

    DC Switching linear regular design question

    Hello, I am fairly new to electronics design (I have a mech e background), and am designing a board that requires dropping 12v to 5v with a large current requirement (up to 8A@5V). In a bid to save on BOM, I took a shot at creating my own design vs buying one off the shelf, using the...
