Power supply designs are going digital. It is now common to see what would have once been a completely analog design incorporate some combination of Digital-Signal Processing (DSP), microcontroller (uC), and/or Field-Programmable Gate Array (FPGA) technologies. This paper illustrates how the SystemVision simulation environment can be used to design and analyze this class of power supply on a 150 W, 100 KHz half-bridge converter.
