Poll: What Did You Find Most Informative About This Article on Digitally Controlled DC Power?

This poll concerns the following article: Tech Spotlight: The Benefits of Digitally Controlled DC Power

 

Introduction

The compact size and cost-effectiveness of Switched-Mode Power Supplies (SMPSs) have made them workhorses of efficient power conversion.  Traditional SMPS designs are purely analog, as these are simple to implement and help to maximize power supply efficiency. The past two decades have seen the rise of digital control methods and Digital Signal Controllers (DSCs), based on general-purpose or dedicated microprocessors, Digital Signal Processors (DSPs), or programmable logic devices for SMPS design. The design flexibility, superior performance, and inherent low cost in digital control systems have significantly increased the popularity of digital controllers.
