What if stop/start vehicles took 10 seconds to start-up? Would this be seen as a benefit or a nuisance? The reality is, if rapid-start power applications take longer than 10ms to work, they need to be fixed.

To design a reliable rapid-start power system, there are three essentials that you need to consider:

  • Input dV/dt
  • Input capacitance
  • Output capacitance

With perpetual demands to save energy and maximize efficiency, rapid-start technology is becoming more pervasive every day. By focusing on a few critical areas you can design an isolated power system that can start up within 10ms from application of input power source every time.
