Reversed dots?

The second circuit with split windings for reduced capacitance reverses the dots. This would make this a forward converter, not flyback. Is that intentional or just bit of a mishap?

Robert, nice article (and the tps61175 is a nice chip!). What can you tell us about the PA3392NL transformer? Google doesn't seem to reveal anything about that p/n.

It is a good article for the applications where the voltage is being boosted-up. Utilizing this paracitic would be even greatful theme.

Sorry about that. Didn't see the low voltage input, before posting the previous comment. RL

Turns ratio reflected impedance to the primary is increased, not reduced, by the turns ratio. This includes capacitive reactance. You should pull this article before the misinformation spreads too widely. RL

The 1 watt waste for a 4W supply is amazing. Thanks for a good basic article with enough technical information to be useful. This will help in the decision process for the next set of power supplies we select.

NEXT UPCOMING BROADCAST
In conjunction with unveiling of EE Times’ Silicon 60 list, journalist & Silicon 60 researcher Peter Clarke hosts a conversation on startups in the electronics industry. One of Silicon Valley's great contributions to the world has been the demonstration of how the application of entrepreneurship and venture capital to electronics and semiconductor hardware can create wealth with developments in semiconductors, displays, design automation, MEMS and across the breadth of hardware developments. But in recent years concerns have been raised that traditional venture capital has turned its back on hardware-related startups in favor of software and Internet applications and services. Panelists from incubators join Peter Clarke in debate.
