How to Design a High-Current Buck Converter


Date: March 19, 2015

Computing, Cloud Infrastructure, and Communications systems such as Rack or Blade Servers and Ethernet Switches, have several high-current rails up to 30A that require precise voltage regulation, high power density, high efficiency, low part count, and excellent thermal performance. Traditionally, a step-down PWM controller with external power MOSFETs has been used to regulate these rails.

However, in this video Strategic marketing manager, George Lakkas will discuss how to use TI’s NexFET process and PowerStack packaging technology to power the same rails using one integrated FET converter (iFET).
