alimentation à découpage
Explanation:
"A switched-mode power supply (switching-mode power supply, switch-mode power supply, switched power supply, SMPS, or switcher) is an electronic power supply that incorporates a switching regulator to convert electrical power efficiently. Like other power supplies, an SMPS transfers power from a DC or AC source (often mains power) to DC loads, such as a personal computer, while converting voltage and current characteristics."

agree  Yves Fontaine: Techniquement correct. Mais dans une notice grand-public je préférerais "adaptateur secteur à découpage" voire "adaptateur secteur électronique" (par opposition à ferromagnétique, plus lourd et moins performant)

  -> merci!

agree  Antoine Brunel: C'est techniquement correct et Wikipédia confirme de plus l'usage par le grand-public.
