Find Parts

I'm going to go ahead with the next step and show you a Find Part. So, I'm going to go with this optimized layout here that we just did, and I'm going to hit "Find Parts." This will take a minute to run here. So, when it finishes, it's now suggested all parts and it's telling us that from each one of these sections we can select up to five different devices for each output to compare performance on. That allows to do a deeper dive before we actually go to generating the schematic.

So, I click "Okay" on that. So, we scroll down and you can see it's broken into sections. So, this is the section here is all related to the core. So, in this case I'm just gonna... We have one part only, in this list, we only have one part that is schematic-enabled, that would mean that we could go directly to a Schematic Generation for the parts. So, I'm just gonna select that one in this case and on some of the other ones I'll select multiple devices so we can compare.

Okay, on the next two rails, it actually found a dual solution that can do the VDD 1.8 and the LDO Supply in a dual output part. So, that simplifies your system and, you know, saves cost there. So, we're going to check that ISL85033, as well as... Also, if you needed single output options, it gives you single output options as well. So, we'll look at single output option for each one of these as well. I'm gonna just look at the ISL85033, and we'll select the module as well to look at.

So, you can select multiple things, up to five different for each rail. So, this is one rail here, each one of these you could select up to five devices for that, then do a comparison. Okay? And then, the next to last rail here is the VCC 3.3. We have a couple options, some of them schematic enabled. I will go ahead and just grab something that's schematic enabled, just so we can see that process when we generate it. I'll select one more. Unfortunately, none of the linear regulators are showing that are schematic enabled. So, if we can select them now, we can still take a look at some of 'em.

And also, I forgot to mention here, what you'll notice in this efficiency estimation, estimated efficiency. It is giving estimated efficiencies of this part under the conditions that we've specified what the efficiency will be. And that is at a percent load, and that is adjustable. When we ran this, we had 100 percent load selected. You could select different values of load. Default for this is 100 percent, but you can see the different efficiency points based on your initial selection.

So, once you've selected devices like I have done here, then what you would do as your next step would be perform a summary analysis on selected parts below.
