Design considerations for powering industrial non-isolated 24V rail applications
In today’s industry 4.0 applications, engineers strive to bring innovative approaches to creating solutions that can tolerate higher voltage and higher temperatures while shrinking PCB footprints and lowering total cost of ownership. TI’s SIMPLE SWITCHER® portfolio with over 25 years of history is the broadest dc-dc step-down portfolio for industry 4.0 applications such as robotics, industrial ethernet, machine vision, motor control, machinery, and industrial CPU modules. In this session you will learn how and when to position a dc-dc regulator versus a module solution. It covers the technical details for inductor and capacitor selection and calculation, solution size comparisons for regulator and module designs, performance comparisons of both options with the purpose of maximizing total application coverage with SIMPLE SWITCHER® solutions. The presenter is a Systems and Applications engineer.
