This 7-part series discusses tips and best practices for selecting the appropriate components for your switching power supply.
EMI (electromagnetic interference) mitigation is a critical step in the design process in most electronic systems, and especially so in the automotive world. In many cases, automotive OEM emissions requirements are even more stringent than both national and international standards bodies like the FCC. Unfortunately, by their nature, switching regulators are sources of EMI; but, in order to keep power supply designs small and efficient, switchers are a critical component. So how can you reap the benefits of a switching regulator while still meeting challenging EMI requirements?
We are all well aware that the demand for Electric Vehicles (EV) is increasing rapidly. This eight-part training session begins with a description of a typical EV system in part 1. Part 2 is a brief description of how both Lead Acid and Lithium Ion batteries are charged. Part 3 focuses on the types of power factor and harmonic currents. Part 4 discusses power factor correction and the typical boost PFC stage. Part 5 concentrates on the Phase Shifted Full Bridge topology, including the reasons why it is used and a detailed description of how it operates.
This sections covers tips for selecting the appropriate capacitors for your switching power supply.
This sections covers tips for selecting the appropriate inductors for your switching power supply.
The presentation addresses the design consideration of USB Type-C power delivery. USB Type-C is the new trend of Industrial, automotive and personal electronics devices. In the training, audience will be able to learn more about USB Type-C power delivery (PD) requirement and understand architecture of USB Type-C PD, AC/DC power source.
The presentation addresses the Precision DAC Architecture overview, DAC spec parameters and the theory of operation & Design example. All the information is importer for engineer when work on the system design.
Building automation system is a communication network infrastructure that manages the building service. This training will introduce the environmental sensor black diagram, key reference design and the solution for IC temperature sensor, power saving analog temperature sensor, digital temperature sensor … etc.
The training provides a very comprehensive introduction of the commonly-used interfaces including RS-485, RS-422, ProfiBus, RS-232, IO-Link, CAN and LIN. These interfaces are used in the application of Factory Automation and some other industrial applications. For the engineer who needs to deal with interface system design, this is a very useful training.
The topics will cover system design issue and solution for Building Automation, Power Delivery and Test & Measurement. TI experts introduce the latest technology and innovation system reference design. Discover ways to enhance the time-to-market and create safer and efficient industrial systems.
How many times have you said, “I would like to prototype an idea with TI silicon but I can not get software resources" or “I don’t know how to prototype/program.”
This training shows you how to get started prototyping on TI solutions with minimal or no programming, including the following tasks:
Control theory is often thought to be difficult to understand and theoretical approaches usually have lots of Mathematics and talk about Loop Gain, complex frequency, H(s), G(s) and so on.
Applications Engineer Jason Tao discusses PFC basics, topology comparisons and design considerations to achieve a cost-optimized and efficient PFC design.
The Phase Shifted Full Bridge (PSFB) has always been considered the best design for high power DC/DC conversion. However, a newer technology called Full Bridge LLC (FB-LLC) has recently been used and accepted for high power DC/DC conversion. In this 3 part series, we will go in-depth in discussing the pros and cons of both the PSFB and FB-LLC. We will then compare the basic problems between the PSFB and FB-LLC and give ideas on how to choose between the two given a certain application. Lastly, we will review some Reference Designs.
