The entire circuit consists of the control IC, two small ceramic caps, an inductor, a diode, and a current sense resistor. The primary power-supply functions and the secondary features such as load disconnect, overvoltage protection, and PWM dimming have been implemented with a control IC and five small surface-mount passive components.
