Power Stage Designer? Tool of Most Commonly Used Switch-mode Power Supplies
This product has been released to the market and is available for purchase. For some products, newer alternatives may be available.
Power Stage DesignerTM is a JAVA-based tool (requires JAVA 8 or OpenJDK 8) that helps engineers accelerate their power-supply designs by calculating voltages and currents of 20 topologies according to the user’s inputs. Additionally, Power Stage Designer contains a Bode plotting tool and a toolbox with various functions to make power supply design easier. Because all calculations are executed in real time, this is the quickest tool to start a new power supply design.
