One embodiment is directed towards an encapsulated device. The encapsulated device includes a device, and a first encapsulation covering the device. The first encapsulation has one or more exterior surfaces. One or more recesses in one or more of the exterior surfaces is configured to receive a second encapsulation.


In an embodiment, a power-supply controller includes a control circuit, a drive circuit, and a signal-drop-reducing circuit. The control circuit is configured to generate a drive signal having a duty cycle, and the drive circuit is configured to cause a phase circuit of a power supply to generate, in response to the drive signal, an output signal having a magnitude. And the signal-drop-reducing circuit is configured to disable the driver circuit in response to the duty cycle corresponding to a signal magnitude that is lower than the magnitude of the output signal. For example, where a power supply has a non-zero residual output signal (e.g., output voltage) on its output node after the power supply is deactivated, such a power-supply controller can reduce or eliminate a drop in the residual output signal caused by, or that would be caused by, a restarting of the power supply.


In an embodiment, a method includes generating a pulse-width-modulated signal having a duty cycle, and isolating a power-supply output node in response to the duty cycle corresponding to a signal magnitude that is less than a magnitude of an output signal on the power-supply output node. For example, where a power supply has a non-zero residual output signal (e.g., output voltage) on its output node after the power supply is deactivated, a power-supply controller can use such a technique to reduce or eliminate a drop in the residual output signal caused by, or that would be caused by, a restarting of the power supply.


An electronic system, DC-DC voltage converter, method of operating a buck-boost DC-DC converter, and method for power mode transitioning in a DC-DC voltage converter are disclosed. For example, one method includes receiving a compensated error signal associated with an output voltage of the DC-DC voltage converter, determining a power mode of operation of the DC-DC voltage converter, and if the power mode of operation is a first mode, outputting a first control signal to regulate the output voltage of the DC-DC voltage converter. If the power mode of operation is a second mode, outputting a second control signal to regulate the output voltage of the DC-DC voltage converter, and if the power mode of operation is a third mode, outputting a third control signal to regulate the output voltage of the DC-DC voltage converter.
