ELMG Digital Power design PCB for
PCBs for power converters require microelectronic circuits and power devices on the same PCBA. The interface between the low voltage digital control and the high voltage power electronic switching devices has mains safety isolation compliance requirements such as those from IEC/EN60335 or EN50178.
ELMG use Protel and Altium PCB design tools.
PCBs are designed for test (DFT) and are designed for manufacture (DFM).
PCB layout for FPGA used to control power converters require high speed digital techniques to meet EMC and signal integrity requirements. Power supplies and PCB planes are laid out to meet the ripple and impedance requirements.
Meeting lower cost FPGA power control requirements using quad flat pack parts meets aggressive consumer focused power converter price points.

Analogue and Power Layout
ELMG precision analogue design requires sophisticated and subtle PCB layout for EMC and noise immunity.
Power switching devices like triacs and IGBTs dissipate heat when they are operating so the PCB provides heatsinking. To design these requirements for power converter and other PCBs.
Power converter isolation and safety requirements are met with PCB spacings that are often enhanced with slots.
Power converter and analogue PCB layout from ELMG Digital Power ensures systems that are reliable robust and cost effective.
Communications Link Layout
The ELMG PowerComms links high speed digital communication systems for power converters have differential transmission lines on the PCB alongside switching power supplies. Potential signal integrity issues are managed with careful layout. Other design features include well managed EMC and protection against power supply overvoltage.
ELMG high speed digital PCB layouts operate successfully in PowerComms links in power converters around the world.
