Riding Out Automotive Transients : Architecting Front End Power Conversion Stage for Automotive Off-Battery Loads
With rapidly expanding electronic content in latest generation of cars, there is an ever increasing need for power conversion from the car battery rail. The 12-V battery rail is subject to a variety of transients. This presents a unique challenge in terms of the power architecture for off-battery systems. This presentation introduces the different types of transients that occur in automotive battery rails, the causes of those transients, and the standards and specifications defining the test conditions for those transients.
Linux is well-adopted within embedded systems. But debugging Linux system issues can be overwhelming. This training series teaches the techniques of debugging kernel issues that may be encountered in embedded Linux systems. This training series explains the Linux kernel logging system and logging API, illustrates how to locate a particular device driver, and demonstrates how to read kernel oops logs.
Certain end-equipment, like communications, server, industrial, and personal electronics have design challenges solved by the DC/DC converter’s control-mode. This session will compare and contrast 3 different devices using 3 different control modes under the same design criteria to see how each control mode solves particular size, efficiency, external component, ripple and transient response design challenges.
This training series provides background on embedded systems startup to enable users of the AM3x/AM4x/AM57x Sitara processors to make choices that reduce boot time during system design of a selected processor. It introduces the boot time components of the catalog processors, system, and the Processor Linux Software Development Kit (PLSDK). It provides first steps and capabilities to reduce boot time using the Processor SDK without significant customization. This presentation also gives developers a look beyond just the initialization of the selected OS.
