Fairchild Semiconductor’s Power Supply WebDesigner design and simulation tool provides complete designs in under a minute and includes complete continuous conduction mode (CCM), non-isolated active PFC buck and buck LED driver designs. From user-specified design inputs, the Power Supply WebDesigner (PSW) tool allows designers to choose all the components used in a design or have the tool automatically recommend the design values – providing Fairchild part numbers where applicable. PSW can automatically recommend design values, or allows the user to evaluate their own component choices. Designers can accept default recommended values, or spend time optimizing the important details to their unique design needs. Designers can get quick, accurate estimates on design performance, and refine design choices as they go. The tool also allows them to spend the time to perform detailed simulation analysis and learn the insights of how their design and its hardware prototype will work with higher degree of confidence. When a design is complete, PSW creates a BOM which can be sent to their procurement department or instantly procure the components online, saving time on documentation or sourcing parts elsewhere.
