Abstract
In this project the concept of digital power was examined. Though not a new phenomena, the concept was new to Micropower. The company develops a wide array of battery chargers and wanted to include this concept in future generations of their products. The reasoning behind the decision is the possibilities of smoother development, better error handling and more communication.
As a first step different microcontrollers were examined to see which would fit the requirements of the company best. When an appropriate controller was chosen a development kit was ordered to confirm that the functionality was possible to implement. After that, an adapter card was manufactured to fit the digital power controller card in one of Micropowers chargers.

This worked well and the digital power solution provided the same functionality as before but now with more possible future improvements. (Less)
