Article: “New Thermal-design Options Drive Power Density”

The market is demanding ever increasing functional densities, which needs to be supported by significantly increased power densities.  The trade-off is the challenging thermal-design task to minimize heat generation throughout the power subsystem design.  In a recent article in PowerElectronics, Gary Gill discusses what approaches are available to system designers to address these issues and looks at how power conversion topologies such as ZVS (zero-voltage switching) and ZCS (zero-current switching) will help improve thermal efficiency and power density.

Article: Tap Online Design Tools To Improve Your Power Subsystem Designs

Historically, power components and their manufacturers competed largely on datasheet specifications and price. Power subsystem designs were mostly either discrete, one-off implementations that demanded substantial power-design expertise and effort or generic designs that supported rapid development but yielded less than optimal performance. Evolution in online design-support tools has broken this binary model and, in recent years, done so in ways that bring substantial value to system-design programs and mark an essential differentiator for power component providers. Read the full article, ‘Online Design Tools To Improve Your Power Subsystem Designs’ by Vicor’s Stephen Oliver, which appeared...
