Real Power Density: 26A μModule Regulator Keeps Cool in Tight Spaces

November 29, 2012 // By Eddie Beville, Linear Technology
Each generation of high end processors, FPGAs and ASICs demands more power, but even as power supplies are expected to carry significantly heavier loads, they are given less board space to do so. It is now common for POL (point-of-load) supplies to produce multiple voltage rails at tens of amps to over a hundred amps at low, ≤1V, output voltages, and in less space than the generation before.
