This chapter covers power conditioning for notebook and palmtop systems. The systems shown here provide power conditioning with high efficiency and low parts count. Trade-offs between complexity and efficiency have been made to maximize manufacturability and minimize cost. All the supplies operate over a wide range of input voltage allowing great flexibility in the choice of battery configuration. There are figures and examples throughout the chapter to gain practical insights into design techniques and practice.
