Supervisees the vendors for Production of 4.5W and 20W converter dc-dc converter
Supervises the vendors and troubleshoot all problems when encountered during production of fly back topology based 4.5W converter and forward topology based 20W dc-dc converter.
Involved in modification of 20W converter to work as 60W converter.
LINEAR REGULATOR LDO
Requirement: Subsystem are facing problem with imported LDO like OM7764 is whenever 1553 transient is there, they observe change in output voltage that degrade the performance of their package. For improvement they are forced to use high value of capacitors which results in oscillation for some users. This is the driving factor for us to develop current control based indigenous LDO which support 1553 transition of no load to 3A also without any overshoot and with less capacitor of 22 uF instead of 680 uF.
Two versions of LDO were designed. One with Mosfet as a pass element and the other was Transistor as a pass element.
Both the circuits were simulated using PSPICE.
The MOSFET based circuit is used in 10W DC-DC converter for output voltage of +5V.
The transistor based LDO is hybridized and realized as an off the shelf product.
The pin configuration and the size of the hybridized LDO package is maintained similar to existing imported package OM7764 (IR LDO)
The HMC was tested for various specifications at ambient temperature and -40 to +65 at thermovac.
Interacted with SRG for carrying out the derating analysis.
