Efficiency Standards and Ratings for External Power Supplies
A power supply’s efficiency is simply the ratio between the energy it consumes and the energy it supplies. No device can be perfectly efficient; there will always be losses in heat or electromagnetic fields. The leading causes come from active component losses (MOSFET and diode switching losses) and, to a lesser extent, from passive component losses (resistors, capacitors, and inductor impedance losses). It moves towards utilizing higher

The Mysterious 50 Ohm Impedance: Where It Came From and Why We Use It
50 Ohm impedance became the standard impedance used in RF transmission lines long ago, but it is still useful today and is a standard reference impedance used in test equipment.
S-Parameter Measurements and Errors in Power Integrity
No matter where you look, it seems S-parameters never go away! They are mandatory tools for understanding some systems, such as an interconnect or antenna, while other network parameters can sometimes give a better conceptual understanding of electrical behavior. These parameters are normally reserved for signal integrity among electronics engineers, but if you look hard enough, you’ll find that S-parameters are also used for power integrity
