New Version of Flex Power Designer Software Released

Flex Power Modules has released version 4.5 of their popular ‘Flex Power Designer’ (FPD) Tool which enables detailed simulation, configuration and optimization of power systems using the company’s DC-DC converter products.

Highlights of the new version are:
• A new 3D visualization tool
• Support for Xilinx Versal Adaptive Compute Acceleration Platform (ACAP)
• A bus voltage optimization feature
• New enhanced thermal models for certain parts
• Support for new products such as BMR313, BMR314, BMR320
• Improvements and bug fixes
• SMBus tool for control and production programming now available as a separate download

The new features add to the existing capabilities of the tool to predict detailed behavior of a power system, including efficiency, power dissipation, transient response and output impedance. Relationships between voltage rails can be defined and displayed including paralleling, phase spreading, sequencing and fault spreading, using the standard PMBus protocol.

FPD is free-to-use software, downloadable from the Flex Power Modules website. Existing users can easily upgrade to the new version 4.5 via an update link in the application.

Anders Sellin, Strategic Product Manager of Flex Power Modules comments: ”This major new revision of our power designer tool will make it even easier for users to visualize the performance of Flex Power Modules products, both physically with the 3D simulation feature and electrically with a range of new functions.”

This tool is downloadable from the Flex Power Modules website.

Gate Driving Your Problems Away
Sponsored by Mouser Electronics and Infineon
Isolated gate drivers are a crucial design element that can protect our designs from over-voltage and short circuits. But how can we fine tune these isolated gate drivers to match the design requirements we need? In this episode of Chalk Talk, Amelia Dalton and Perry Rothenbaum from Infineon explore the programmable features included in the EiceDRIVER™ X3 single-channel highly flexible isolated gate drivers from Infineon. They also examine why their reliable and accurate protection, precise and fast on and off switching and DESAT protection can make them a great fit for your next design.
