Comparing the Merits of Integrated Power Modules versus Discrete Regulators
More InfoLess Info
Modern integration technologies have brought about improvements to the modular DC-DC voltage regulator. Time to market, cost, size constraints, reliability, and design capabilities are among the motivating factors in choosing modular power versus a traditional controller plus external components design. Each approach has its advantages and disadvantages. This article examines design criteria, performance, and BOM cost to predict the best choice for individual projects.
