High Step-Down Ratio Buck Converters With eGaN Devices

The intermediate bus architecture (IBA) is currently the most popular power system architecture in computing and telecommunications equipment. It typically consists of a +48 V system power distribution bus that feeds on-board bus converters, which in turn supply power to nonisolated, dc-dc converters. These nonisolated converters generate the low supply voltages required to power the various logic circuits. Because of their proximity to the circuits they power, these converters are commonly referred to as point-of-load converters (POLs).
