Our power supply reference designs are proven circuits built to support common application parameters. Each design has been built and performance tested and comes with comprehensive, standardized documentation, including: detailed design note, verification test results, schematic, bill of materials, and PCB artwork.

But, wait, there’s more! You can now further reduce your circuit design time thanks to new reference designs available in any of 7 popular CAD formats, including

  • Altium
  • Cadence Allegro Design Entry
  • DesignSpark
  • DesignSpark
  • KiCaD
  • Mentor DxDesigner
  • OrCAD

Download the design directly into your preferred CAD design environment and move on to more valuable design work. Simulation models are even available for some of our reference designs, plus a free version of the EE-Sim® OASIS Simulation Tool to simulate your circuit.

Whether you use the file set as is, or want to first tweak the design to fit your specific needs, you’ll significantly reduce development risks while accelerating time-to-market for your designs.
