Overview and Comparison of Power Converter Stability Metrics

By 'Abe' Hartman, ‘Alex’ Miranda, Kavitha Narayandass, Alexander Nosovitski, and Istvan Novak

Power conversion circuits with control loop(s) are everywhere in electronic systems. We must establish stability and performance metrics for control loops and their circuits. However, generally accepted metrics may not be good enough. Is a crossover frequency with 45 degrees of phase margin and 10 dB of gain margin enough? How can we relate phase margin to peaking in the impedance profile and transient noise requirements? This article aims to answer these and other questions.


Hybrid Active Optical Cable Assembly From Hirose Supports up to 12.5gbps and 3.3v

Hirose, the designer and manufacturer of connector solutions, has designed an intrafacility fiber cable (IFC) assembly system that supports bidirection optical transmission of 6.25Gbps and unidirection up to 12.5Gbps (6.25Gbps x 2ch). The high-speed BF4-IFC Series cable assembly integrates the BF4M Series active optical connector into a rugged circular shell with a superior push-pull design for quick and easy mating/unmating operation.
