LTpowerCAD II, A Design Tool for Switching Regulators

May 01, 2014 // By Electronics EETimes

Switching power supply design can often be a challenging and time-consuming experience. Typically this requires knowledge of aspects such as control loop compensation, IC operation and capabilities, filtering and even power loss mechanisms related to DC/DC switching regulators. The LTpowerCAD design tool provides recommendations for component values and performance estimates specific to the user's application with Linear Technology's μModule and monolithic DC/DC regulator products.
