Rectifier Circuits

Circuit offers improved active rectification: 02/06/03  EDN-Design Ideas / Rectifiers convert ac signals to dc. You can combine a diode and a load resistor to create a half-wave rectifier, provided that the amplitude of the ac source is much larger than the forward drop of the diode (typically 0.6V). Unfortunately, you can't use this method to rectify signals that are smaller than a diode drop...

High Speed Rectifier uses No Diodes: 03/30/95 EDN-Design Ideas

Method provides self timing for synchronous rectifiers: 05/16/2002  EDN - Design Ideas / Synchronous rectifiers are MOSFETs, driven in such a way as to perform a rectifying function. They often take the place of diodes in the output-rectification stage of switching power converters, because of their lower on-state power loss. In power circuits, synchronous rectifiers are often complicated to use because of timing issues..
