Optimising base-station operation

Base-station power designs must make trade-offs among size, efficiency and performance. New power solutions based on digital telemetry are simple, flexible, and scalable. Base-station systems designed around the MAX15301 point-of-load (POL) controller will be more integrated and flexible.

Base-station power-supply engineers encounter numerous design challenges. Wireless operators want them to reduce power consumption and reduce size. They are also asked to minimise the complexity of the sub-systems performing sequencing, monitoring, margining, and numerous other tasks. To optimise application requirements, they must make several trade-offs, including power conversion efficiency versus size and performance complexity versus cost. This article will explain how a new, highly integrated power solution offers the flexibility and optimised performance to simplify these design challenges.
