Is the power engineer the super hero in a design?

Keywords:ESD? current-limiting? risetime reducers?

We don't expect manufacturers to produce clothes that come in one size that fits everyone. In the same way, one ESD component can't solve all issueseach application has different ESD requirements. Knowing that "one size fits all" cannot apply to power design, the power designer, or the engineering "super hero," must consider all the potential disruptions to a steady flow of power and then various ways to mitigate them. This tutorial describes voltage- and current-limiting devices and risetime reducers to manage the power. It also points to free and low-cost software tools to help design lowpass filters, check capacitor self-resonance, and simulate circuits.
