Digital power software tool unlocks new levels of flexibility to optimize energy consumption
November 08, 2012 // Paul Buckley
Ericsson has unveiled an advanced industry-first toolkit that provides board-power designers with highly advanced software to configure, implement and monitor power conversion devices — from a single unit to a complete system.
The software includes two essential parts a design tool and a production tool. The Ericsson Power Designer design tool is based on a simple and intuitive interface and offers board-power designers a wide range of possibilities to configure standalone 3E POLs, 3E ABCs and 3E PIMs, or a combination of multiple products as integrated in the final application. The production SMBus-based tool makes it possible to upload configuration files into a set of modules during manufacturing: not only reducing inventory costs, but also increasing flexibility to upgrade configurations with the implementation of new power schemes.
The Ericsson Power Designer software has been developed in close cooperation between board-power designers and power-systems architects to deliver an advanced tool that truly unlocks the high level of flexibility offered by digital power architectures. Addressing power novices right up to highly experienced power system engineers, the Graphic User Interface has been designed for intuitive learning. Each screen is optimized for easy readability, reducing the time-to-learn and improving productivity as the user learns more about the software tools advanced functionalities.
The software includes three major features: Project Mode, which makes it possible to save multiple projects for future use; Offline Mode, which is based on the integrated Ericsson 3E product-profile library and does not requires any connected hardware, thereby simplifying pre-configuration prior to implementation; and Online Mode with connection to 3E Design Kit boards or to end-user applications, making it possible to configure and monitor 3E POL regulators and 3E ABCs. Board-power designers can also build their system in Rail Mode, which provides the ability to specify individual profiles for each rail, save the configuration, and combine rails or modify rails later following implementation in customer applications.All news
