Layout Tips & Tricks – Multirail Power Supply Design For Successful Application Boards

Power supply design can be broken down into three main stages: (a) design strategy and IC choice, (b) schematic design, simulation, and testing, and (c) placement and routing. Investing time into the (a) design and (b) simulation stages can prove the efficacy of your design concept, but the real test requires putting it all together and testing it on the benchtop. In this article, we’re going to skip to step (c), as there are a significant number of resources that cover Analog Devices’ simulation and design power tools, all free to download, such as LTpowerPlanner®, LTpowerCad®, LTspice®, and LTpowerPlay®. Part 1 of this series covered (a) strategy.
