Abstract

An assembly language subroutine is described for use in a microprocesso that is regulating the voltage level of a switching power supply. The routine provides a standardized method of digitally powering up a switching power supply. The subroutine is useful in conjunction with a microprocessor-controlled power supply such as that described in the article appearing on pages 4401-4406.
