Designing Highly Efficient Power Supplies for Smart Factories

Figure 1: Non-synchronous buck converter

As sensors and communication modules send factory processing intelligence to the edge, routine decisions can be made faster without involving the main processor. The additional intelligence, however, must use the same or even less space on the factory floor. This, in turn, calls for more product functionality
