How to Design Rapid-Start Power Systems

March 20, 2018

The time to power-up a system is a critical metric for many applications, particularly as engineers increasingly use stop/start technology to save power in applications from industrial control to automotive.

Rapid Start Power System White PaperBy focusing on a few critical areas you can design isolated power system that can startup within 10ms from application of input power source every time. To design a reliable rapid-start power system, there are three key things that you need to consider:

  • Input dV/dt
  • Input capacitance
  • Output capacitance

Rapid-Start Power Systems for Defense Applications

Rapid Start Power Systems for Defense ApplicationsThe cornerstone of successful military maneuvers is precision. In the field of battle, seconds save lives.  Milliseconds can be the difference between a successful mission and a failed mission. Rapid-start power applications therefore play a critical role in numerous military applications, where “good enough” is not an acceptable standard.
