PC-board layout determines the success or failure of every power supply project. It sets functional, electromagnetic interference (EMI) and thermal behaviour. Switching power supply layout is not black magic, but is often overlooked until it is too late in the design process. Fortunately, physics is on your side.
Low-power operation of electronic apparatus has become increasingly desirable. Medical, remote data acquisition, power monitoring and other applications are good candidates for battery-driven, low-power operation. Micropower analogue circuits for transducer-based signal conditioning present a special class of problems. Although micropower ICs are available, the interconnection of these devices to form a functioning micropower circuit requires care.
Jim Wallace of Seaward Solar looks at the reasons why electrical testing and inspection of solar PV installations is a fundamental requirement for system safety and performance.
