App note: Limiting inrush current

Aimtec’s app note on inrush current on power converters and their solution. Link here


Inrush currents can be problematic in circuits that utilize overload protection devices such as fuses and circuit breakers. The selection of overcurrent protection devices is made more complicated when high inrush currents are present. False overload conditions can trigger unwanted protection events.
