Signal Chain Power (SCP) Hardware Evaluation Platform

The Signal Chain Power (SCP) hardware platform enables signal chain designers to quickly develop, prototype, and evaluate complete power solutions for instrumentation, test & measurement, and industrial automation precision signal chains. The central design philosophy behind SCP is to box up Power by Linear™ design expertise and share it with signal conditioning systems engineering groups using an easy-to-configure plug-and-play system. Along with the SCP hardware platform and SCP Configurator software tool, SCP includes complete schematics, BOM, and PCB artwork for the system designer.

The SCP hardware platform features:

  • Easily produce multirail configurations via plug-and-play terminal boards
  • Swap out boards in seconds for comparative testing and noise optimization
  • Compact form factor keeps system small
  • Configuration resistors are 0805 with oversized pads for easy rework
  • Supported topologies include:
    • Boost, Buck, Buck-Boost, SEPIC, and Inverting switching regulators
    • Positive and negative linear regulators
  • Silent Switcher® and ultra-high PSRR LDO products available for noise-critical applications

Signal Chain Power Platform Simplifies Evaluation

Developing custom power trees for instrumentation applications using modified standard demo boards can be time intensive. Signal Chain Power (SCP) is a specialty power supply evaluation system that snaps together for fast noise performance.
