Würth Elektronik eiSos and Infineon Technologies recently launched the jointly developed XMC Digital Power Explorer evaluation kit. The synchronous step-down converter can be assembled with two different control cards: XMC1300 ARM Cortex-M0 MCU and XMC4200 ARM Cortex-M4F MCU. Intended for developers of analog power supplies and embedded software programmers, the XMC Digital Power Explorer Kit is a complete solution with hardware, softwaren and switchable resistance load bank.
The high-performance XMC4200 family offers a high-resolution PWM unit (with 150-ps resolution) and intelligent analog comparators with precise slope compensation that can considerably simplify power supply design. The XMC1300 family is cost-optimized for simpler power supply applications.
The Digital Power Explorer Kit costs approximately $130 .
