Digitalize your power supply the easy way

April 27, 2016 // By Julien Happich
This month, Würth Elektronik eiSos is giving away ten of its XMC Digital Power Explorer evaluation kits, worth 119 Euros each, for EETimes Europe's readers to win.

The kit jointly launched with Infineon Technologies last January offers a synchronous step-down converter which can be assembled with two different control cards (XMC1300 - ARM Cortex-M0 MCU and XMC4200 - ARM Cortex-M4F MCU). This makes an easy introduction to the world of digital power supplies for developers of analog power supplies and embedded software programmers. The kit comes as a complete solution with hardware, software and switchable resistance load bank. Developers can compare two performance classes using two different control cards. The high-performance XMC4200 family offers a high-resolution PWM unit (with 150 ps resolution) and intelligent analog comparators with precise slope compensation that can considerably simplify power supply design. The XMC1300 family, on the other hand, is cost-optimized to provide excellent cost effectiveness for simpler power supply applications.
