Intersil Corporation extended its global leadership in digital power technology, introducing a major breakthrough in digital power design — the PowerNavigator™ graphical user interface (GUI). The PowerNavigator GUI lets users design digital power into their systems without writing a single line of code, and its easy-to-use drag-and-drop interface significantly accelerates design time.
The PowerNavigator tool is a free, downloadable GUI that provides the flexibility designers need to quickly set up and control any power supply architecture. Crafting the power architecture in PowerNavigator’s “hardware-free” mode lets users select components prior to hardware development, without design risk. The PowerNavigator GUI provides access to all commands and setup configurations, including the ability to load predefined configurations for common applications. Once the initial hardware is developed, the GUI can apply the saved settings and monitor all the rails. Any number of rails can be displayed with a selection of telemetric data.
Designers make final system adjustments through the GUI with simple and intuitive controls. Sequencing of the rails is now possible through a visual drag-and-drop interface.
