1.3 Digital Power - PMBus POL power: what is the value anyway - Session 3
PMBus has continued to gain popularity in the implementation of POL (Point-Of-Load) solutions in more and more end applications in the wired and wireless communication, enterprise server and storage, and even industrial segments such Factory Automation, Machine Vision, Test & Measurement, and Software Defined Radios. PMBus offers ease of design, lack for the need to write software, real-time diagnostics, as well as data collection for routines to improve data center efficiency and power utilization effectiveness (PUE). In this webinar you will learn the basics of the PMBus interface, how it helps with rail monitoring and Adaptive Voltage Scaling (AVS) of today’s high-performance DSPs, ASICs, and FPGAs, and be given an overview of TI’s PMBus POL solutions. There will be a live demo of a PMBus SWIFT dc/dc converter using TI’s Fusion GUI.
