Discover the benefits of using digital power in complex applications and learn how to integrate digital control methods in your designs.
Eighth-brick converters with higher efficiency, digital control and at lower cost from suppliers including CUI, Vicor, Murata Power Solutions, and more.
This article looks at how the telecommunication system power infrastructure has developed over the years based on technical advances in the industry and some possible solutions to present day distributed power architectures.
Distributed power architectures (DPA) are popular in modern telecom and datacom equipment, as well as in datacenter servers.
DC/DC isolated power converters adhering to a 1/8, 1/16, and 1/32 standardized brick formats offer a number of advantages to design engineers looking for a modular isolated power supply for board mounting.
Wind power has been recognized as a viable source of "free" energy for hundreds of years. Since it pre-dates the petroleum economy or even the industrial revolution, it seems odd to refer to it as an "alternative" energy source.
As electronic systems continue to trend toward lower voltages with higher currents, the power systems designer is challenged to provide small, cost-effective, and efficient solutions that offer the requisite performance.
Modular, high-density POL (point-of-load) power DC/DC converters have some excellent advantages over other power management architectures.
DC/DC converters are a great high-frequency noise source. Designers must take careful steps to minimize and contain this noise near and around the converter to keep it from affecting other system components or the AC mains.
