Voltage supervisors increase the system reliability and robustness by ensuring that power rails are active only during stable power supply. This is achieved through functions such as: precise voltage monitoring, over-voltage protection, power failure indicator, processor monitoring, power sequencing, battery backup, and reset latching.
In this series, you will learn about the:
If you are brand new to PoE, we recommend watching all four videos at your own pace for a complete overview. If you’re more experienced with the technology and just need a refresher on various concepts, jump right into the topic that meets your needs. Or consider watching our more advanced series below on all things related to the IEEE 802.3bt design.
The new IEEE 802.3bt standard has introduced the capability for designers to utilize PoE for high-power applications (up to 90W at source and 71.3 at input). The below videos provide insights into whether the .bt standard is right for you, but if you’re already evaluating or compliant to .bt, we’ve also shared resources to help you navigate working with non-standard PD types, response to power demotion events and more.
Quiescent current, or IQ for short, is one of the most critical design concepts for power supply designers to master. IQ, or the amount of current when your IC is in a no-load or non-switching state, may be an easy concept to digest at first, but can come with tradeoff decisions. The resources below can help demystify IQ, as well as provide a path forward with TI’s new starting line-up of ultra-low power management ICs.
Keep these resources in your toolbox, and come back often to ensure you’re effectively optimizing your whole power tree for optimal system lifetime
