Electronic system designers, engineers, program managers and original
equipment manufacturers (OEMs) must address numerous challenges in
the selection or development of an appropriate power supply for their
systems. These challenges include a multitude of aspects related to the
product development cycle, time-to-market, reliability and warranty,
parts availability, and life cycle costs. In some cases, an existing power
supply can be readily adapted from a different application. In other
cases, it may be necessary to develop a new or custom power supply.
Let’s examine the five major challenges faced in the design of power
supplies and determine the solution.
