SiC Schottky diodes dramatically reduce the importance of switching frequency, making it possible to find a new optimum in boost converter design with simultaneous reduction of the system's size and power loss.
As bricks and single-in-line packages (SIPs) continue to evolve to deliver more juice from smaller space at lower cost with higher efficiency and reliability, suppliers of dc-dc converters are planning the next move. The drive toward sixteenth...
As the dynamic and static load current increases, there's a need to increase the number of phases in the multiphase converter system to improve the transient performance for next-generation processors.
The modular system of power conversion components employs a flexible design concept that consists of OEM components for thermal management, electrical, and mechanical interconnection and interfaces between power unit and control.
Turning on a power source into a highly capacitive load can wreak havoc on circuit elements and protection devices. Foldback current limiting allows circuit elements to withstand transient currents without over-designing for maximum load conditions.
Higher current demands and higher operational speeds are placing greater demands that switching power supply EMI be suppressed at its source before it is allowed to propagate into other circuits and systems.
Today's portable battery-powered equipment calls for compact and highly efficient power conversion solutions. The LTC3251 from Linear Technology is an inductorless, spread spectrum step-down dc-dc converter that delivers up to 500mA of continuous...
