Power distribution for SoC and FPGA applications
June 20, 2018
Microprocessors and FPGAs require several voltage supply rails, each with tight regulation accuracy and sequencing requirements. Because of the software and application-dependent current consumption of these point-of-load rails, customers often look to customize their solution to get the best blend of performance, size, cost, and simplicity. At the same time, the required regulation performance narrows the field of suitable devices. Thus, it is of critical importance to identify which specifications should be the top priority when choosing power devices.
