For noise-critical portable applications, such as GPS receivers, connectivity, and sensing, power supply designers always had to choose between longer battery run time (from higher efficiency) or higher signal chain performance (from the increased sensor sensitivity possible with a quieter power supply). For line-powered industrial or communications equipment applications, designers have been forced to dissipate significant amounts of power in LDOs to achieve the desired noise performance. Achieving both low noise and high efficiency was impossible.
Battery life cycle is a key for high-cell-count battery pack-based end-equipment. Low quiescent current (Iq) consumption of DC-DC converters is a major feature that helps achieve longer battery life cycles. TI’s latest buck converters boast low Iq consumption as they maintain high efficiency in the active mode (heavy loads) as well as extend battery life during standby modes. This training will cover an overview of battery powered industrial applications and the specific power consumption requirements for these end equipments.
This training series will firstly discuss the isolation requirement in power electronics system, and then compare the different driver isolation implementation methodologies. Integrated isolated gate driver shows the best performance in the perspective of size, performance and reliability.
This training video will firstly discuss the configuration of the UCC2x52x gate driver and it featured benefits, then a detailed bench experiment comparison shows that UCC2x52x family gate drivers has better dynamic performance as well as stable and predictable source/sink peak current.

There are quite a bit of system considerations to design a wearable display. We designed this training based on the questions that product development managers, product marketing managers, and systems engineers are asking themselves about this attractive application.
Voltage supervisors increase the system reliability and robustness by ensuring that power rails are active only during stable power supply. This is achieved through functions such as: precise voltage monitoring, over-voltage protection, power failure indicator, processor monitoring, power sequencing, battery backup, and reset latching.
In this series, you will learn about the:
Designing to the tight voltage tolerances of today’s modern central processing units and field programmable gate arrays (FPGAs) is becoming more difficult as their current draw increases and becomes more dynamic. Getting the correct output capacitance mix to ensure first-time power-delivery success is no small feat with >100-A steps and slew rates in excess of 100 A/µs. Standard point-of-load design techniques no longer hold true; we need new methods to choose the output capacitance.
When it comes to MOSFET datasheets, you have to know what you’re looking for. While certain parameters are obvious and explicit (BVDSS, RDS(ON), gate charge), others can be ambiguous at best (ID, SOA curves), while others can be downright useless at times (see: switching times).
