Lattice releases electronic publication of power supply management designer guide
April 26, 2010 // Paul Buckley
Lattice Semiconductor Corporation has released an electronic publication of Power 2 You a book that guides board designers in the implementation of board power supply management solutions that reduce costs, improve reliability and manage risk.
Lattice has also announced four additional reference designs and the new Hercules Development Kit, which will enable customers to accelerate time to market for these power management applications.
“Customers are finding that the Lattice programmable Power Manager technology is helping them reduce their bill of materials and the number of board re-spins,” said Gordon Hands, Lattice’s Director of Marketing for Low Density and Mixed Signal Solutions. “Power 2 You shares our experiences with applications where programmable technology delivers these benefits.”
Approximately 100 pages, Power 2 You details the use of programmable technology in a wide variety of applications such as power supply sequencing, monitoring, trimming, hot-swap and power feed. Many of the techniques outlined in the book are demonstrated using reference designs.
To aid in the rapid prototyping of designs using Power Manager devices, Lattice will provide the new Hercules Development Kit, which features the Power Manager 1220AT8 device. The development kit will allow easy evaluation of the hot-swapping, monitoring, control and trimming applications discussed in Power 2 You.
Documentation and source code for these designs can be downloaded free from the Lattice website at: www.latticesemi.com/products/intellectualproperty
Details of the Hercules Development Kit, which will be available in June 2010 and priced at 109.00 US Dollars, are available from:
