Do subjects like high peak load capability and high voltage safety testing keep you awake at night?
Worried about the California Energy Commission’s (CEC) requirements for efficiency and no-load power consumption? Confounded about why two seemingly-same power supplies can possibly perform differently?
If power supply selection, power supply repair, or other power supply issues are concerning you, then you will want to obtain the new, third edition of the Power Supply Technical Guide by XP Power. The plan was to boil all this information down for you right here to make it easy, but having just read this new guide myself, I can tell you… it is so jam packed with useful information that I have thrown my hands up and am just giving you the link.
You can find out current, need-to-know info about:

Best of all, it is FREE. You can download it as a PDF or print it out if you are one of those paper-lovin’ folks (I admit, I like to turn a page and haven’t yet succumbed to the Kindle’s wiles). Here it is guys…tear it up! http://www.xppower.com/pdfs/TechGuide2010.pdf.
