Power Supplies Evaluate Battery Power Management Systems

Figure 1: Power management system functional block diagram.

Today’s power management systems utilized in new mobile phones and laptops incorporate unprecedented levels of capabilities. A bewildering array of implementations is available, ranging from ICs partitioned into discrete functional blocks, to full systems on a single mixed-signal IC. It is no less bewildering for the engineer to select and subsequently evaluate potential power management systems for new designs.
