Title: PRIORITIZED SEQUENCING OF DEVICE INRUSH CURRENT
Abstract:
Input power sequencing implementations for electronic, processing, and computing systems are presented herein. In one example, a method of providing power to operational elements of an electronic system is provided. The method includes maintaining sequencing information for the operational elements that indicates relative priorities and inrush delays for each of the operational elements. Responsive to ones of the operational elements requesting transition to a powered state, the method includes placing at least indications of the ones of the operational elements into a queue, establishing a power sequencing process for servicing the queue based at least on the sequencing information associated with the operational elements in the queue, and initiating the power sequencing process to provide input power to the operational elements in the queue.
