For power designers, the main challenge is how to efficiently power and cool this equipment, while ensuring minimal electricity usage. Designers also must balance board power footprints with thermals when using today’s advanced processors, ASICs and FPGAs. This white paper examines the evolution of the multiphase converter architecture from analog to digital implementations, and compares the various control mode schemes.</div> <p><a href="http://electronicdesign.com/white-paper/powering-iot-infrastructure-systems" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://electronicdesign.com/white-paper/powering-iot-infrastructure-systems#comments White Paper Power Tue, 14 Feb 2017 16:40:00 +0000 912241 at http://electronicdesign.com Putting Safety into Li-ion Battery Packs http://electronicdesign.com/white-paper/putting-safety-li-ion-battery-packs <div class="field-deck"> Sponsored by Intersil </div> <div class="node-body article-body">The power FET provides an essential safety function in a battery management system, isolating the battery pack from either a load or a charger in errant conditions. Proper functionality of the power FETs requires the designer to understand the load conditions, the battery pack limitations and to have an understanding of the functional block circuitry. This white paper discusses the detection blocks and how they apply to the state of the power FETs to ensure safe operation of Li-ion battery packs.</div> <p><a href="http://electronicdesign.com/white-paper/putting-safety-li-ion-battery-packs" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://electronicdesign.com/white-paper/putting-safety-li-ion-battery-packs#comments White Paper Power Tue, 14 Feb 2017 16:40:00 +0000 912251 at http://electronicdesign.com
