Wide vin power supply for space-constrained sensors

Wide vin power supply for space-constrained sensors
This reference design from Texas Instruments provides an example of how to power FPGAs, ASICs, or MCUs in industrial sensor applications when space-constraints are a primary concern. The wide six to 60V input voltage range and the use of ultra-small and highly efficient DC/DC converters makes the design well suited for applications like industrial sensors, field transmitters, motor drives, and PLC modules.
