This book deals with energy delivery challenges of the power processing unit of modern computer microprocessors. It describes in detail the consequences of current trends in miniaturization and clock frequency increase, upon the power delivery unit, referred to as voltage regulator. This is an invaluable reference for anybody needing to understand the key performance limitations and opportunities for improvement, from both a circuit and systems perspective, of state-of-the-art power solutions for next generation CPUs.A VRM is a VR that is plugged into a baseboard (or motherboard) via a connector or soldered in with signal and power leads (see Sect. ... desktop applications primarily due to cost reasons; and so is the case in laptops and slim server computers, where tight height constraints ...
