Please note: this video is slightly out of order from how it was created. Chris references “the stuff we were just looking at”. Those are the videos in the next lesson (part choice). We felt it was better to get the explanation up front.
- Chris explains buck and boost switching converters, trying to not delve too deep into the physics.
- Viewing components like capacitors and inductors as energy storage mechanisms (using electrical and magnetic fields) helps to understand how the circuits work.
- MOSFETs and diodes act as the switching mechanisms that shuttle current to different parts of the circuit.
