Need better software support when designing with Xilinx FPGAs? The optimal solution has arrived thanks to Flex Power Designer
In this article we review the challenge and the latest generation of digital PoLs, which allow advanced control techniques for optimized performance using companion software.
Hybrid regulated ratio (HRR) technology – a proprietary technique developed by Flex Power Modules – is a compelling alternative to conventional fixed-ratio or fully regulated conversion in isolated intermediate bus architectures.
For most systems, a single power module will provide the required output power. But sometimes, it’s necessary to use two or more power modules in a parallel configuration. Why? And what benefits does paralleling offer?
Careful consideration is required when selecting power solutions. After all, choosing a power module based on price alone could compromise factors such as performance, quality, reliability and safety.
Flex Power Modules will look at the standards and requirements surrounding power solutions intended for deployment in railway applications as well as looking at some recent products designed specifically for this challenging application.
Outlining several key areas in which direct conversion delivers benefits – improved conversion efficiency, lower loss power distribution, board space savings and compliance with the Open Rack V2.0 standard
