PMBUS MONITORING AND CONTROL FOR MULTI OUTPUT MODULAR - AC-DC OFF LINE CONFIGURABLE POWER SUPPLIES.


Program Description:   PMBus is an open source standard used in the power electronics industry. PMBus uses standard commands on an I2C connection for system wide measurement and control of power converters. Having PMBus accessible to system designers all along a projects life cycle makes measuring parameters such as output voltages and currents on mult-rail power supply lines a valuable development tool - it allows direct measurement without instrumenting the power supply in system. With the IoT becoming a reality what can be done with the ability to measure and control the power supply rails output current, voltage and temperature also for system deployment and field service diagnostic uses?
