    EEVBlog #1116 – The Capacitance Multiplier

    Circuit building block time. The capacitance multiplier and how it gives almost negligible power supply ripple compared to a voltage regulator. Whiteboard theory and then some bench demonstrations and experiments. Plus a twist at the end that proves that the “Capacitance multiplier” is perhaps one of the most mis-named circuits ...
