White Paper Explains How to Reduce Power System Size by Eliminating Bulk Capacitance

Although the need is most acute when designing power systems for applications such as aerospace, most systems benefit from smaller and lighter electronics. Bulk capacitance can represent a large proportion of the size and weight of a power chain, but engineers can eliminate it. You can find out more by completing e the form below to download Build Small, Lighter Power Systems by Eliminating Bulk Capacitance.

Flexible Fault Management

The Factorized Power Architecture (using the PRM and VTM) provides an efficient means of providing power under rapidly varying load conditions. In the event of a fault, the VTM module shuts down automatically and remains shut down until restarted by the PRM module. The addition of a Fault Management Circuit allows for much more flexibility in the response to a fault. The Fault Management Circuit described here can be used for a PRM driving one or two VTMs in series or parallel. The circuit is compatible with the PRM / VTM families that support...
