Single 48V to 1V, 200A Converter Powers Microprocessors (Part 2) (.PDF Download)

This converter utilizes a resonant capacitor in series with the primary winding. All power must be transferred from input to output by current passing through capacitor Cr. Capacitor Cr’s voltage rating is approximately 1V and yet it converts input voltage of 50V. Therefore, its voltage rating is 50 times lower than the input source voltage. In addition, the required capacitor value is in the order of 100µF, so a very small size capacitor is needed for this 100W, 1V @ 100A
