How to Design Modular DC-DC Systems, Part 1: Four Stages of Design

When designing a modular DC-DC system, it is important to look at the entire power-delivery system from source to load to achieve the desired functionality and performance. This tutorial series examines the modular DC-DC system design process and walks through an example set of system loads and the process to supply those from a given source

This series also addresses overall system integration of DC-DC modules and the support circuitry necessary for a complete power system design. This includes considerations for the power source and decouplingfiltering and stability analysisoutput filtering and transient response, driving specialized loads (i.e., pulse loads), safety and protection, current sharing, and fault-tolerant arrays, as well as signal-level input/output.

Advantages of modular design

DC-DC power modules enhance the overall system design process and offer three main benefits to the designer.
High performance – DC-DC modules present a prequalified solution that enables designers to deliver power reliably and efficiently, which is of paramount concern for the demanding load requirements of today’s power systems. A variety of module classes are available, and these offer numerous benefits in terms of their power density, integration and efficiency
