Description

Power Stage DesignerTM is a JAVA based tool that helps engineers accelerate their power-supply designs by calculating voltages and currents of 20 topologies according to the user’s inputs. Additionally, Power Stage Designer contains a Bode plotting tool and a toolbox with various functions to make power supply design easier. Because all calculations are executed in real time, this is the quickest tool to start a new power supply design.

  • Topology Window – Provides topology information and component waveforms based on input parameters
  • FET Losses Calculator – Compares the performance of different FETs
  • Capacitor Current Sharing Calculator – Displays how RMS current is distributed among parallel capacitors
  • AC/DC-Bulk Capacitor Calculator – Helps to select the right bulk capacitance for AC/DC-power supplies
  • RC-Snubber Calculator for Rectifiers – Assists with choosing the right RC-snubber values to reduce ringing across rectifiers
  • RCD-Snubber Calculator for Flyback Converters – Helps to reduce switching node ringing in flyback converters
  • Output Voltage Resistor Divider Calculator – Calculates the output feedback resistor divider
  • Dynamic Analog Output Voltage Scaling Calculator – Provides the resistance values for the output feedback network to support output voltage variation
  • Dynamic Digital Output Voltage Scaling Calculator - Includes the resistance values for the output feedback network to support output voltage variation
  • Unit Converter – Converts different power supply related units
  • Loop Calculator – Helps to determine the compensation network for different topologies
