Diode Dl prevents negative spikes from occurring at the MOSFET gate, the 100 ohm resistor is a parasitic suppressor, and Z1 serves as a dissipative voltage regulator for the output and also clips the drain voltage to a level below the rated power FET breakdown voltage.
Low-power converter uses the core characteristics to determine frequency. With the transformer shown, operating frequency is 250 kHz.
Self oscillating circuit with self resonating transformer.

EDN Europe (registration) (blog) LTC3896 is a high inverting switching regulator controller that drives an all N-channel synchronous power MOSFET stage. Most low to medium power inverting DC/DC use a coupled inductor or transformer: this de
Elektor (blog) Texas Instruments has presented the first step-down for powering low- circuits from a 12 V supply rail with a package so small that it achieves a current density of more than 50 A/cm³ – four times as much as all
Electronics EETimes (registration) When used with a hold-up capacitor, SynQor's AC line filter and SynQor's high efficiency DC-DC , each of these PFC modules draws a nearly perfect sinusoidal current (with a Power Factor greater than 0.99) fr
ECNmag.com The analog low-pass filter can remove high noise and interference from the signal path prior to the ADC avoiding contaminating the signal with aliased noise. It also eliminates the effects of overdriven signals beyond the bandwid
