PSMA Power Supply Software/Firmware Reliability Improvement Report (2019)
$ 2490.00

Power Electronics are transitioning from analog control to digital control. Power supply designers now need to create and embed software in power supply products.  Moving from power electronics with analog control to power electronics with digital control is a significant transition and this report presents key findings related to the challenges and solutions to reliability in the digital control of power electronics.Software reliability is the ability of software to repeatedly preform intended functionality for defined operating conditions over extended periods of time. While the focus here is on software reliability, hardware variations and evolution over time impacts software reliability and legacy software function. High quality software with high reliability requirements is typically implemented following a standards-based regulatory process. Software engineering best practices are being adopted for digital power electronics control for power supplies to ensure reliability does not suffer with the transition to digital control. Some of the best practices are relatively new, evolving and unfamiliar to the power electronics world. This report examines a wide array of problems and challenges in the field of digitally controlled power supplies then proceeds through observed and proposed improvements and best practices.

Technology Report - 3D Power Packaging with Focus on Passive Embedded Components and Substrate Technologies (2018)
$ 3490.00

This is the third in a series of reports focusing on using 3D packaging to reduce the size and improve the performance of Power Sources.  The focus of this report is on passive and substrate technologies. Georgia Tech Packaging Research Center under contract from the PSMA Packaging Committee have systematically surveyed the recent advances in passives-active embedding and 3D passive-active integration to generate this report. Emerging nanomaterials and processes are described for inductors, capacitors and resistors. Key enabling building-blocks are described for each technology. The manufacturing challenges are also highlighted. Roadmaps are projected for passive component advances and active embedding technologies.

Technology Report – Current Developments in 3D Power Packaging with Focus on Embedded Substrate Technologies (2015)
$ 2990.00

This report is the Phase 2 report on 3D packaging of power sources and is a follow up to the previous report published by the PSMA Packaging Committee.  The report begins with a discussion of PCB embedding technologies which are now in high volume production and together with 3D packaging technology predominately provide a significant performance and size reduction enhancement opportunity rather than a means to reduce costs. Also presented is information on high temperature die and component attachment technologies that are evolving rapidly in the research labs. However, high power-density component embedding and 3D packaging of power semiconductors also have to overcome a ‘thermal barrier” - since it is more challenging to remove heat generated within the body of a 3D integrated system than from a planar surface. To execute an embedded power design is very dependent on the availability of passive components optimized for PCB embedding and the report includes some of the available sources. The report also includes the results of a worldwide literature search of R&D published by participating organizations. These technologies, combined with wide-bandgap semiconductor devices will literally re-vitalize the entire power electronics infrastructure block by block, module by module, for the twenty-first century.

Transformers for Electronic Circuits by Nathan R. Grossner – Second Edition Reprint (2011)
$ 110.00 each

This is a reprinted edition of one of the classic design texts on magnetics design! It is a complete, one-stop guide to transformer and inductor design and applications for everyone who designs, builds, or uses power magnetics components. Throughout this book, the author, Nathan R. Grossner, combines analysis and synthesis, and all theory is related to the solution of real-world problems. Sections of the text provide guidance in the use of transformers and inductors in power electronics and in digital and pulse circuits. Also included is design information about other forms of high-frequency magnetics such as transmission-line transformers, hybrid transformers, ferroresonant transformers, flyback converter magnetics and inductors used in switch mode power converter designs. Special attention is given in the book to the proper control of dielectric stress, corona and thermal factors in high-voltage magnetics designs. Modeling methods for magnetic parts are also included and treated in some detail. This book is an essential reference book for any engineer involved in the design and development of modern-day magnetic components. 

Soft Ferrites - Properties and Applications by E.C. Snelling - Second Edition Reprint (2010)
$ 150.00 each

This is the second in a series of classic magnetics texts offered to designers and students in the power electronics industry. The book was initially published in 1969 and was extensively revised by the author, E.C. Snelling, in 1988 to bring all eleven chapters in line with current design practices and applications of ferrite cores used in modern-day inductors and transformers. The aim of this unique 366-page reprint is to provide all the information on ferrite properties and wound-component design necessary for efficient applications of these materials. Data in the book are represented by means of extensive use of graphs and tables, and design procedures are supported by many working examples of inductors and transformers.

Modern DC-TO-DC Switchmode Power Converter Circuits by Rudolf Severns and Ed Bloom - REPRINT (2009)
$ 150.00 each

This book focuses on the fundamental behavior and characteristics of switchmode power converters and on the relative merits of many popular topologies. The first 11 chapters present the basic theory of switchmode power converter circuits with minimal use of mathematics. Chapter 12 focuses on converter circuits with integrated magnetics and concludes with an extensive bibliography and helpful lists of suggested reading materials for reference and research purposes.

Applications Of Magnetism by J. K. Watson - REPRINT (2008)
