Analog Power Supply Design Workshop

The workshop begins from first principles and looks at the fundamentals of switching power supply design covering Bode plots and control theory. All theory is supported with numerous hands-on labs and all attendees should leave the workshop feeling conformable with stable compensator design for both voltage mode control and current mode control. There is also detailed study of robust "isolated" power supply design using industry standard optocouplers and programmable references such as TL-431.
