What is the difference between switch mode power supply and regulated power supply?

Published: 8 April 2022

The main difference between a switch mode power supply and a regulated power supply is that the former uses switches to control the flow of energy, while the latter uses linear regulators. This means that switch mode power supplies are more efficient than regulated power supplies, since they don't have to convert all of the incoming energy into heat. However, switch mode power supplies can generate more noise than regulated power supplies, so it's important to choose the right type of power supply for your application.
