Does your project require wide input voltage parts? Whether you’re working Wide-VIN DC/DC converters, controllers, modules, LDOs, or FETs, you need to understand how to reduce cost and solution size without sacrificing reliability or performance.

Questions answered in this session:

  • What is needed for efficient Wide-VIN designs?
  • What are applications where Wide-VIN is a “must have”?
  • What are potential design challenges?
  • What wide-input compatibility, dropout and power dissipation details should I keep in mind?
  • How do I determine current limit and protection?
  • What’s the best way to approach thermal layout?
  • What resources are available to help with Wide-VIN designs?
