The notes in this document are for a course in the School of Electrical Engi-neering and Computer Science at the University of Newcastle, Australia. Thiscourse covers a number of topics that can be broadly grouped under the title of “switching electronics”. Electronic switching is the unifying factor that providesthe theme for the course. The notes were written because the subject materialcovers such diverse areas as digital logic switching families, switched transmis-sion lines and printed circuit boards, switch mode power supplies (SMPSs), and(to a lesser degree) converters. No single text book covers such material.The general approach of the course is to emphasise the practical aspects of switching and how design has to be changed to account for its effects. Thetheory behind many of these ideas is presented in detail in the appendices. Thisis particularly true in relation to switching in digital systems with transmissionlines.The structure of the course is as follows. The first part will consider a varietyof issues related to switching in digital systems. This will include a review of logic families and interfacing of different logic families. Then issues related tointerfacing logic components on a printed circuit board will be considered. Thiswill include noise issues, transmission line effects, terminations, cross coupling,printed circuit board layout, decoupling issues.The second section of the course will look at switch mode power supplies intheir various forms. The main structures for switch mode power supplies will beconsidered. Again practical issues will be emphasised. Design of the magneticsfor switching supplies will be considered, as well as some control issues. Thecontrol issues are only briefly considered due to the lack of background of somestudents doing the course.The final part of the course considers high powered converter and invertertopologies. At this stage there is only an introduction to high power switch-ing devices, and a brief look at naturally commutate converters, mostly singlephase. Eventually there will be a reasonable treatment of three phase naturallyconverters and forced commutated inverters (using thyristors as well as transis-tors).Robert E.
