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.
This series provides an overview of the World of Power by Market, by Standard, by Product Type and Topology. It also provides an overview of the design tips and tools related to power design decisions.
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.
You've heard of low quiescent current, or low Iq, but what does it mean for your design? In this training, learn how low quiescent current impacts your power supply performance, along with the benefits of alower quiescent current DC/DC switching converter
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.
Join our webinar series, as we explore different industry trends and technologies across our diverse product portfolio. Over the coming months, our experts will cover the latest analog, power management and embedded processing topics, across both automotive and industrial applications.
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.
Wearable displays systems, including a general understanding between augmented reality and virtual reality, optical architectures used, and system design considerations.
This section categorizes wearable displays, explains each category, and showcases what popular applications are used for each category. The categories covered are: immersive virtual reality, virtual reality, mixed reality, augmented reality, and personal theatre.
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:
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).
This training video will help to understand the UCC2152x's output configuration and grounding consideration when driving FETs and IGBTs with negative voltage bias. Three different implementation methods are introduced, pros and cons of each methods are illustrated.
In this video, you will learn more about:
- the features implemented and high-level architecture of the reference code
- the definition and archteciture of port power management
- how to test and modify the reference code
