Texas Instruments Introduces WEBENCH System Power Architect

Texas Instruments (TI) WEBENCH System Power Architect

Texas Instruments launched their new WEBENCH System Power Architect, which is an online tool for speeding the design of multi-output, high-performance DC/DC power supply systems. The tool gives engineers a robust design capability to build and optimize a complete power system from the edge of the card to the smallest point-of-load in just about 60 seconds. WEBENCH System Power Architect includes a variety of hot swap controllers and isolated power products.


WEBENCH System Power Architect enables designers to build and optimize a complete power system from the edge of the card to the smallest point-of-load. In addition to the design and simulation of individual point-of-load converters, the online tool includes the ability to accommodate multiple intermediate bus architectures and safety isolation in conjunction with TI’s hot-swap controllers and isolated power products.
