    EXPLATION FOR MICOM CIRCUIT 1. Explanation for PWB circuit 1-1. Power circuit Power circuit consists of SMPS (SWITCHING MODE POWER SUPPLY) power. The SMPS consist of the rectifying part (BD1, CE1) converting AC voltage to DC voltage, the switching part (IC2) switching the converted DC voltage, transformer transferring energy of the primary side of the switching terminal to the secondary side and the feedback part (IC3, IC4) transferring it to the primary side.
