Abstract/Description:
University of Central Florida College of Engineering Thesis; Evolution in microprocessor technology poses new challenges for supplying power to these devices. To meet demands for faster and more efficient data processing, modem microprocessors are being designed with lower voltage implementations. More devices will be packed on a single processor chip and the processors will operate at higher frequencies, exceeding IGHz. New high performance microprocessors may require from 40 to 80 watts of power for the CPU alone. Load current must be supplied with up to 30A/us slew rate while keeping the output voltage within tight regulation and response time tolerances. Therefore, special power supplies and Voltage Regulator Modules (VRMs) are needed to provide lower voltage with higher current and fast response.
