To help power design engineers evaluate digital power components for medical devices, as well as industrial, telecomms and datacomms use, GE Energy has released its Digital Power Insight kit. It is a portable evaluation tool that allows engineers of all knowledge levels to explore, evaluate and experiment with digital power modules such as the popular DLynx PoL and the Barracuda DC/DC bus converter series. It can turn a PC or laptop into a virtual evaluation lab, says the company. It provides access to information such as current and voltage to monitor power consumption at a high resolution. The kit helps engineers with limited digital power experience explore how a digital power module can impact the energy-efficiency of the finished product. It requires only one field to be populated by the engineer.
