Posted: 10 Feb 2012     Print Version  Bookmark and Share

Keywords:Power Distribution Units  energy measurement 

Several applications and markets employ intelligent Power Distribution Units (PDUs) or power strips for power monitoring and on/off control of data centre equipment, workstations, home entertainment systems, or sub panel circuits. The PDU1 solution for the 78M6618 energy measurement System-on-Chip (SoC) is designed for single-phase systems with measurement on a per outlet or circuit level.

This application note provides hardware and system design guidelines for those implementing the 78M6618 PDU1 solution in their products. These guidelines aim to reduce design cycle times by reviewing the challenges and solutions to achieve minimum crosstalk and greatest accuracy in a multiple-outlet power strip.

This application note starts out describing generic recommendations common to all applications. Then it provides design examples and relevant tips for different implementations of a PDU design. These examples refer to available evaluation boards whose design files are available for download.
