Title
(EN) THERMAL ROTATION OF POWER SUPPLY PHASES
(FR) ROTATION THERMIQUE DE PHASES D'ALIMENTATION ÉLECTRIQUE
Abstract
(EN)
Power supply circuitry and enhanced associated techniques are presented herein. In one example, a method includes powering a circuit with a plurality of power supply phases, and monitoring thermal properties of the plurality of power supply phases. Responsive to the thermal properties indicating at least one of the plurality of power supply phases exceeds a thermal threshold, the method includes selecting a dormant power supply phase to supplant the at least one of the plurality of power supply phases.
(FR)
L'invention concerne des circuits d'alimentation électrique et des techniques associées améliorées. Dans un exemple, un procédé consiste à alimenter un circuit avec une pluralité de phases d'alimentation électrique et à surveiller des propriétés thermiques de la pluralité de phases d'alimentation électrique. En réponse aux propriétés thermiques indiquant qu'au moins une phase de la pluralité de phases d'alimentation électrique dépasse un seuil thermique, le procédé consiste à sélectionner une phase d'alimentation en énergie en veille pour remplacer la ou les phases de la pluralité de phases d'alimentation électrique.
