Power Electronics Hardware Design for Manufacturability
September 15, 2022 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm
With a small diverse team of engineers, Magna-Power Electronics can offer over 160,000 different configurations of programmable power supplies and electronic loads, spanning current levels up to 10,000 Adc, voltage levels up to 10,000 Vdc, and power levels up to 3,000 kW. While Magna-Power has nearly fully in-sourced manufacturing operations under one roof, the strategies presented can also be implemented through close manufacturing partners by understanding the constraints imposed by various production processes and machinery. The presentation shares an overview of some of Magna-Power’s prototyping techniques, design automation software, team management tools that were developed iteratively over its 40-year history. Topics include printed circuit board (PCB) design and vendor selection, production and design controls, and electro-mechanical integration. New content, beyond the original article, now includes recent progress in programmatically defined assembly models.
