Dual 13A μModule Regulator with Digital Interface for Remote Monitoring & Control of Power

July 01, 2014 // By Jian Li and Gina Le, Linear Technology
Managing power and implementing flexibility in a high rail count circuit board can be challenging, requiring hands-on probing with digital voltmeters and oscilloscopes, and often rework of PCB components. To simplify power management, especially from a remote location, there is a trend to configure and monitor power via a digital communications bus. Digital power system management (PSM) enables on-demand telemetry capability to set, monitor, change and log power parameters.
