Newest Generation of Power Modules Further Simplifies Power Design


Abstract: A sound discrete power supply design requires a high level of expertise and is time consumingto design. Power modules offer an easier path, in a ready-to-use plug-and-playreliable design for rapid prototyping or end use.A new generation of power modules on the market today offers greater integration, for asmaller system-in-package power solution. New process and packaging technologies haveenabled these devices to become more compact and operate with higher efficiency, whileeliminating the daunting task of designing a worry-free power supply. This enables systemdesigners to spend greater time on the core design, for faster time to market.
