Dear customer,

There is a first time for everything.

If it's your first time to develop the power supply on a carrier board I hope you will find this issue's white paper interesting. It's a practical introduction to the subject by one of our engineers. It’s definitely not his first time.

Designing power supply circuitry
for carrier boards

Carrier board design - Power supply circuitry

The power supply is typically based on a combination of linear and switching voltage regulators. The former is uncomplicated and inexpensive but inefficient. The latter saves power but is somewhat challenging to the designer and costs more.

This article is about designing the power supply on a carrier board. The purpose is to share some of our experiences and give an introduction to the subject.
