Four DC/DC μmodule regulator systems current share

Application note: powering FPGA systems using DC/DC μmodule regulators — part 2 download

Linear TechnologyThu, 28 Aug 2014

The approach described in this application note from Linear Technology uses four DC/DC µmodule regulators in parallel to increase output current while sharing the current equally among each device. This solution relies on the accurate current sharing of the µmodule regulators to prevent hotspots by dissipating the heat evenly over a compact surface area. The solution casts no thermal shadow on its surrounding components, further optimising thermal performance of the entire system.

Application note: powering complex FPGA systems using DC/DC μmodule regulators download

Linear TechnologyFri, 22 Aug 2014

In a recent discussion with a system designer, the requirement for his power supply was to regulate 1.5V and deliver up to 40A of current to a load that consisted of four FPGAs. This is up to 60W of power that must be delivered in a small area with the lowest height profile possible to allow a steady flow of air for cooling. The power supply had to be surface mountable and operate at high enough efficiency to minimise heat dissipation. Such a solution requires an innovative design, ...

Application note: high-voltage, low-noise DC/DC converters download

Linear TechnologyTue, 19 Aug 2014

Photomultipliers (PMTs), avalanche photodiodes (APDs), ultrasonic transducers, capacitance microphones, radiation detectors and similar devices require high-voltage, low-current bias. Additionally, the high voltage must be pristinely free of noise. This application note from Linear Technology describes a variety of circuits featuring outputs from 200V to 1,000V with output noise below 100µV measured in a 100MHz bandwidth.

Application note: developments in battery stack voltage measurement download

Linear TechnologyWed, 30 Jul 2014

Automobiles, aircraft, marine vehicles, uninterruptible power supplies and telecommunications hardware represent areas utilising series-connected battery stacks. These stacks of individual cells may contain many units. In such systems, it is often desirable to accurately determine each individual cell’s voltage. Obtaining this information in the presence of the high ‘common-mode’ voltage generated by the battery stack is more difficult than might be supposed.

White paper: IEC 62310 for static transfer systems — ensuring performance and safety download

Socomec UPSTue, 22 Jul 2014

Before the IEC 62310, prior to 2008, there was no product standard for the ‘static transfer system’ (STS). The closest standard used by manufacturers was the IEC 62040 (uninterruptible power systems, or UPSs). Indeed it is a good reference, but the weak points are definitions and tests. This paper from Socomec explains why users should ask for IEC 62310-compliant STSs.
