In designing with multiphase, Carmen works through a six-phase design for powering the core voltage of a networking ASIC, Marketing Manager George Lakkas explains why multiphase converters are ideal for high currents, and TI engineers blog about common concerns and use contexts.
In testing in the lab, Carmen takes a six phase buck regulator through basic validation testing in the lab with plenty of tips and waveforms shared. Let Carmen show you how to test transient response, input and output ripple, phase stability, and thermal performance. Additionally, TI engineers blog about various lab tricks related to multiphase devices.
PCB layout tips to manage heat dissipation with your switching regulator
Another way to manage thermals is through IC packaging. Smaller and smaller packages continue to be introduced as output currents trend upward. Learn more about the packaging technologies that aid heat dissipation under these challenging conditions and enable high power density.
Introductory video highlighting the topics reviewed in the LDO Basics Training Series. We will go over what LDO's are and analyze the important characteristics of LDO's. This series will also explain the impact of LDO's in power management and give examples of LDO applications. For more information go to http://ti.com/ldo. Stop by the "Support & training" tab for more LDO videos and visit the E2E forum to read what our experts have to say about LDO's.
In order for an LDO to operate normally, you need an output capacitor. A common issue when designing LDOs into an application is selecting the correct output capacitor. In this video, Wilson will explore the different considerations when selecting an output capacitor and how it may affect your LDO.
You can further improve your application’s performance when you consider thermals. An LDO’s nature is to regulate a voltage by turning excess power into heat, making this integrated circuit a good fit for low-power or small VIN-to-VOUT differential applications. With this in mind, choosing the right LDO with the right package is crucial to maximizing an application’s performance. Watch this video to understand how the smallest available package isn’t always the best match for the desired application.
How aggravating is it to pick up an electronic device that you’ve barely used, only to find that the battery is nearly or completely dead? If your device was just on standby or asleep, this may have happened because of a small but crucial specification: quiescent current. In this video, Wilson explores how LDOs are a simple solution to help boost the run time of any battery-driven device - for a few more seconds, minutes, hours or even days.
In this video, we will explain and define the important input specifications that pertain to voltage supervisors. Specifically, this video will cover voltage threshold, hysteresis, power-on reset (POR), and manual reset.
