Tutorial

How to design modular DC-DC systems, part 3: stability analysis and decoupling

Thia part addresses stability issues that originate from the interconnection between the power source and power module through the filtering components and distribution line impedances.

Tutorial

How to design modular DC-DC systems, part 4: safety protection systems

This part addresses the next area of concern which is safety. Fuses and transient suppression circuits must be designed into the system to ensure protection from catastrophic failures without making the system unreliable or inefficient.
