Shrinking a power supply and the challenge to maintain high reliability
Shane Callanan, Director of Applications Engineering, Excelsys Technologies considers the challenges associated with reducing the overall size of a power supply while at the same time maintaining the high reliability of the solution you come up with.
In the last few years, as the technology of power supplies has changed we have seen tremendous improvements in the power density of solutions being offered by many leading companies. This is in direct response to customer demands of smaller solutions, lower cost and increased reliability. However, as you reduce the size of your power supply you need to ensure that component temperatures are kept low, or run the risk of reduced reliability. This paper will look at the challenges facing a power supply designer and how we can achieve this.
