Switched-mode power supplies (SMPS) have the advantage of high efficiency compared to traditional low-dropout (LDO) regulators. Due to its switching nature, an SMPS emits noise at its switching frequency and its harmonics. This article illustrates the procedure of designing filtering to achieve ultra-low output voltage noise with SMPS regulators.
Board level loads create greater challenges for the voltage regulators that power them. Verifying operation of these regulators requires a different approach and different form factors for test equipment
The use of EEE parts in Space missions involves several considerations that are not usual or critical in other industrial fields. Some typical examples of this are outgassing and radiation characteristics. However, another critical aspect that is not always considered is physical space. In Space applications
