How Do You Decide the Best Power Chain for Your Application?

The Power Component Design Methodology is an extremely flexible approach to the development of power systems, using power components to produce designs that are optimized for your application. But how can you determine what is the “optimum” solution to your particular design challenge? Consider the following five figures of merit: Highest Operating Efficiency Lowest Component Count Lowest Cost Smallest Footprint Best Fit The demands of the application will determine the figure of merit that is most appropriate. For example Highest Operating Efficiency (the highest overall efficiency of the complete system at its maximum operating...
