A few days ago, one of the readers – Murugesh had commented asking for help to identify an IC he had with him. He sent a picture of it to me. I was not able to identify the IC on my own. I turned in to the amazing fellows at edaboard and got two correct answers within an hour. Thanks foes to those two wonderful people. Here is a link to the thread on edaboard.
Here is the picture Murugesh sent me (All the copy rights or copy lefts belong to Murugesh 😉 )
The IC turned out to be a PWM IC used for PC Switch mode power supplies. while composing the post on SMPS circuit diagrams, I had actually came across a circuit with this particular IC, but ignored for it being not so popular. But the guys at edaboard even posted a link to that circuit diagram.
I have downloaded and attached the datasheet of IC CG8010DX16 – PWM controller.
