Who have a better Idea on a fullwave bridge
Custom design UPS and Inverters, and Power Line conditioner and pc board layout
What do you consider better?<p>A switching power supply has better regulation and is more efficient but has a more complex circuit<p>A half wave rectifier is is very simple and least expensive but has more ripple but is fine if the application circuit dosen't care. Generally requires filtering<p>A half wave rectifier reasonably priced and has good ripple characteristics and efficiency but still needs a filter and may need a regulator<p>A battery has no ripple but is expensive and they go dead.<p>A power supply should be matched to the circuit it is powering such that it is least complex and least expensive. It should be compatible with the source (AC or DC) and provide just enough power to the circuit to avoid wasted power.
