App note: Active capacitor discharge circuit considerations for FPGAs

Power down sequencing and discharging on FPGAs app note from Diodes Incorporated. Link here (PDF) FPGA’s need the different power rails to be powered up and down in a defined sequence. For power down, each sequenced rail needs to be fully off before the next rail is turned off. With large high speed and high […]

App note: Tracking/Sequence for point-of-load DC/DC converters

Another app note (PDF) for power sequencing from Murata Whereas in the old days, one master switch simultaneously turned on the power for all parts of a system, many modern systems require multiple supply voltages for different on-board sections. Typically the CPU or microcontroller needs 1.8 Volts or lower. Memory (particularly DDR) may use 1.8 […]
