LTpowerCAD Design Tool :
• A power supply design tool instead of simulation tool.
Searches for a solution / LTC part for given power supply spec.
• Guides users to select power stage components.
• Provides detailed power efficiency / loss analysis.
• Provide quick loop bode plot stability and load transient analysis.
• Only supports selected power products (mostly buck & modules).
•Desi
