Buck Converters: The Voltage Step-Down Specialists
A buck converter, also known as a step-down converter, is a power electronics device designed to reduce the input voltage to a lower, regulated output voltage. It operates by storing energy in an inductor and then releasing it to the load at a controlled rate. This makes buck converters incredibly useful in applications like power supply units for computers, where you might need to convert the 12V supply down to a 3.3V or 5V level for certain components.
