In today’s computing environment, CPUs, FPGAs, ASICs and even peripherals are growing increasingly complex and, consequently, so do their power delivery requirements. To handle the higher demands, multiphase regulators are becoming increasingly common on motherboards in many areas of computing--from laptops and tablets to servers and Ethernet switches. Designing with these regulators is more challenging than using conventional switchers and linear regulators, but the benefits of multiphase outweigh the complexity for high-performance power applications.
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.

The Ethernet ecosystem is evolving with the introduction of the IEEE 802.3bt standard. Regardless if you’re an expert in PoE or just getting introduced to the technology, the below trainings provide a good starting point for understanding how TI’s portfolio of 802.3bt Powered Devices (PDs) and Power Sourcing Equipment (PSE) Controllers can be used in traditional and emerging Ethernet applications.
For noise-critical portable applications, such as GPS receivers, connectivity, and sensing, power supply designers always had to choose between longer battery run time (from higher efficiency) or higher signal chain performance (from the increased sensor sensitivity possible with a quieter power supply). For line-powered industrial or communications equipment applications, designers have been forced to dissipate significant amounts of power in LDOs to achieve the desired noise performance. Achieving both low noise and high efficiency was impossible.
