A magnetic angular sensing system has a magnet magnetized radially and a magnetic angular sensor for sensing the angular position of the magnet. The magnetic angular sensor is mounted in parallel to the axis of the magnet and is non-coplanar with the magnet. The magnetic angular sensor senses an angular position of the magnet based on a detected axial magnetic field component and a tangential magnetic field component of the magnetic field vector where the sensor mounted. This invention provides a flexible sensing system.

A computer provides a graphical user interface for displaying a virtual representation of a voltage regulator and for accepting a user requirement for the voltage regulator. The computer automatically determines an internal calibration setting of the voltage regulator that meets the user requirement. The computer simulates operation of the voltage regulator as calibrated with the internal calibration setting. The internal calibration setting is downloaded to the voltage regulator. A calibration controller of the voltage regulator receives the internal calibration setting and outputs digital calibration bits in accordance with the internal calibration setting. The digital calibration bits works in conjunction with interface circuits to adjust circuits of a voltage regulator core to digitally calibrate the voltage regulator.

A current source generating a charging current and a supply voltage by charging a capacitor with the charging current. The current source has a conversion circuit converting a line voltage into a second voltage, a current generation circuit generating the charging current based on the second voltage, and a control circuit controlling the current generation circuit based on the supply voltage. The charging current is controlled to be at a first current value when the supply voltage is lower than a first threshold voltage, the charging current is controlled to be at a second current value when the supply voltage is higher than a second threshold voltage. The first threshold voltage is lower than the second threshold voltage, and the first current value is lower than the second current value.

A buck-boost power converter and a control circuit for the buck-boost converter. The control circuit includes a buck cycle pulse width modulation module and a boost cycle pulse width modulation module respectively having a first controllable hysteresis and a second controllable hysteresis. The buck cycle pulse width modulation module can regulate the first controllable hysteresis during the buck-boost power converter transits between a buck mode and a buck-boost mode so as to eliminate or at least reduce sparks in an output voltage. The boost cycle pulse width modulation module can regulate the second controllable hysteresis during the buck-boost power converter transits between the buck-boost mode and a boost mode so as to eliminate or at least reduce sparks in the output voltage.
