The Achille’s Heel of Electronics

Power supply design has often been called the Achille's heel of electronics. Great ideas are borne out of innovation. However, development of the great ideas often hits a stumbling block when it comes to the supply of power. It is responsible for much aggravation, cost overruns, and schedule delay in the development cycle. Find out how to better plan them into your product.

Low Ripple Power Supply Design

True Power Research is a power electronics consultant and provider of custom power supply designs. Low ripple power supply design is one of our specialties. It is common for power supplies, particularly of the switch mode type, to inject excessive and undesirable noise not only into the load, but also back into the source, potentially introducing problems in the system. Ripple and noise reduction in AC/DC and DC/DC converters is not as simple as basic filter design. Parasitic elements must always be considered, especially for ultra low ripple and noise requirements.

Circuit Simulation

Electric circuit simulation with SPICE and other simulation tools such as SIMPLIS provides an essential verification tool for the development of electronic power supplies. It should not be used as a primary design tool. The design of a power supply must have its foundation in solid design relationships which SPICE and SIMPLIS cannot properly illuminate. However, SPICE and SIMPLIS find their main usage in performance verification of an existing design and for studying the effects of power supply circuit parameters.

LED Driver Designs

True Power Research is a power supply consultant providing custom light emitting diode (LED) driver designs. We are skilled in the difficult demands of compact, long life, high temperature environments commonly found with LED applications -- both offline and DC input.

Design Reviews

We provide power supply design review services of new and existing designs for original equipment manufacturers. In general, the design review is a critical milestone task in the development of any engineering project and should be accomplished at the completion of the paper design, and prior to beginning any printed circuit board layout, ordering parts (long lead time parts excepted if the schedule is compressed), or beginning any prototype build.
