Techniques to Deal with Beat Frequencies Caused by Paralleling DC-DC Converters

December 6, 2013
By

Power system designers are frequently required to develop solutions that provide more power than can be delivered by a single converter. Paralleling is a common technique, where the outputs of more than one converter are linked together to increase output current, and therefore output power. One problem with this approach is the generation of beat frequencies on the inputs of the converters.

Designing Power Distribution Networks for Automated Test Equipment

January 3, 2013
By

The demands on power architectures designed for automated test equipment (ATE) applications have increased dramatically as these systems become more complex. Only a few years ago, many ATE systems used simple “silver box” supplies, but this is no longer a sustainable approach. Modern ATE circuitry requires more power to operate, whilst voltage and current requirements span a wide range. At the same time, these power systems need to accurately and quickly modulate various voltage rails in order to completely characterize the performance of a device under test (DUT). The power system has therefore become...
