It seems that there must be at least two distinct groups of people working in power, writes our power supply guru. One group consists of academicians who invoke integral calculus equations to describe a buck regulator. Another group of power supply professionals may wonder if this is going to really help them design better products. Sanjaya Maniktala says the math CAN translate into a better product, not just some yellowing seminar material fighting for immortality on a dusty shelf.
