  • Patent number: 10686381
    Abstract: In some boost converter applications, an input voltage normally exceeds a regulated output voltage. The operation of the boost converter in this condition can be referred to as a pass-through operation. Using various techniques, the efficiency of a pass-through operation of a synchronous boost regulator circuit can be greatly improved. For example, a synchronous boost regulator circuit can include an input voltage VIN to output voltage VOUT voltage comparator that can accurately monitor the output voltage to detect the pass-through operation. In a pass-through operation, the high-side switch can be kept ON to maintain high efficiency, and the quiescent current of the regulator circuit can be minimized by setting portions of the control circuit into a sleep mode.

  • Patent number: 10666139
    Abstract: During a load transient or load current step, an error amplifier of a regulator circuit can be temporarily pushed to saturation and a compensation capacitor can be discharged. The present inventor has recognized, among other things, that the transient response performance in such a case can suffer due to the slow rising rate of the error amplifier caused by the slow charging of the compensation capacitor. Using various techniques, a switching regulator circuit can include a proportional-integral (PI) compensation network clamp circuit that can provide a fast system transient response and a low quiescent current, which can reduce power consumption.

  • Publication number: 20200155876
    Abstract: The present disclosure describes a pressure support therapy device valve that enables a subject to safely supplement therapy pressure support with low flow oxygen while using a heated (or non-heated) tube. The valve conducts a pressurized flow of breathable gas and the low flow oxygen to the heated tube. The valve includes electrical components configured to pass power from the pressure support therapy device to the heated tube, and a plunger biased to close a flow path from the pressure support therapy device when a pressurized flow of breathable gas is not provided (or is below a predetermined pressure threshold). Closing the flow path stops oxygen gas from flowing back through the valve toward the pressurized gas source.

  • Patent number: 10644591
    Abstract: Techniques for operating a power supply under light load conditions are provided. In an example, a frequency of an oscillator can be adjusted based on a feedback signal indicative of a voltage error of the power supply when the feedback signal falls below a first threshold. In certain examples, a peak inductor current command can be kept constant and a slope compensation ramp can be based on the frequency of the oscillator when the feedback signal falls below the first threshold. In some examples, various circuits of the power supply can be disabled when the feedback signal further falls below a second threshold. The feedback signal can be indicative of a load on the power supply.
