7.3 Rapidly design your isolated power supply and battery chargers using WEBENCH tools
Designing isolated AC/DC or DC/DC power supplies is challenging due to the need for designing the Flyback transformer, which is the key to its operation. Designing the Flyback transformer requires extensive knowledge of magnetics and combining it with the design requirements and constraints. WEBENCH tool designs the custom transformer for you. Using this tool you can select your core-bobbin combination and create a detailed Flyback transformer assembly report that you can hand over to your manufacturing department to fabricate. The second part of the video demonstrates the WEBENCH Battery Charger designer. We show how you can easily design and prototype your customized battery charger. After you input your system and battery specs, you will first see all the possible solutions that can satisfy your requirements in the visualizer. From this visualizer list you can filter the solutions based on your system needs and create a customized battery charger for your battery-operated system. The WEBENCH Battery Charger tool will also compute the charging time profile for your solution, which will give you an estimate of the time to fully charge the battery. Both these tools will help you prototype your designs rapidly.
