A power supply is a critical component in electronic devices, responsible for providing a steady and reliable electrical output to various circuits and systems. One popular type is the Hi-link power supply module, also known as an SMPS (Switched-Mode Power Supply). This efficient module employs advanced switching techniques to convert input voltage into regulated output power, minimizing energy loss and heat generation.
Unlike traditional linear power supplies that use transformers, SMPS operates at high frequencies, enabling compact and lightweight designs. However, both traditional and modern power supplies may incorporate transformers to step up or step down voltage levels, ensuring proper power distribution and safe operation of electronic devices across a diverse range of applications.
