For Consumer / IoT
DC/DC Switching RegulatorsHow to use
The efficiency of a DC/DC converter is calculated by the formula below:
Efficiency : η (％)
＝ Output Power (W) / Input Power (W) x 100
＝ (Output Voltage x Output Current) / (Input Voltage x Input Current) x 100
By measuring the parameters above respectively and applying them to the formula, the efficiency can be calculated.
Points you should take care of at measurement are as follows:
