Analog Devices ADIsimPower

Analog Devices, among other tools, offers a dc-dc power management design tool called ADIsimPower.


Makers of integrated circuits offer guidance and tools so device manufacturers can upgrade designs, avoiding power vampires that drain power from a line or facility, and making upgrades and system integration easier. Is it time to upgrade your device's power-management design?

For example, Analog Devices, offers a dc-dc power management design tool called ADIsimPower , which allows users to:

- enter your design criteria;
- view all design solutions;
- view solution details; and
- build your design.

Texas Instruments power management IC solutions include standard ICs to high performance plug-in, power brick, digital power, MOSFETs and integrated power modules.

Rohm Semiconductor has Power Management ICs, including linear, LDO, standard, secondary, CMOS LDO, and switching regulators, along with switches and power supply ICs.
