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.
The Internet of Things (IoT) is now part of the smarter grid through the adoption of IPv6 communications networks. These 6LoWPAN-based networks address key concerns such as standards-based interoperability, reliability, low power, and long-distance connectivity.
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.
IPv6-based communications are becoming the standard choice in industrial markets such as smart meters and grid automation. The universal data concentrator design provides a complete IPv6-based network solution integrated with Ethernet backbone communication, 6LoWPAN mesh networking and more. The 6LoWPAN mesh networking, which adopts an identical layering architecture to the WI-SUN FAN, addresses key concerns such as standards-based interoperability, reliability, security and long-distance connectivity.
Ultrasonic sensing techniques have been popular in smart water meters because the technology avoids any moving parts which are prone to degrade over the lifetime of the product. The MSP430FR6047 microcontroller (MCU) family takes ultrasonic sensing solutions to next level of performance delivering <25ps of accuracy, detection of low flow rates <1 liter/hour and high precision of <5ps.
This training series demonstrates the usage of TINA-TI, the free SPICE simulator from Texas Instruments. The course has 12 videos, beginning with an introduction and showing the basic usage of the GUI and the simulator. The course shows several examples of the basic features and some of the more complex features that TINA-TI provides. Additionally, the course shows several practical applications of the tool and how it can be used to solve engineering problems.
Sub-1GHz gives you kilometers of range with very low power consumption. The RF bands are license-free and the robust co-existence technology solves the increasing problem of interference from other wireless systems. Sub-1GHz is suited for applications running on small batteries: Metering and smart grid, alarm and security and home automation.

While motor topologies have remained relatively unchanged over the past century, control techniques by comparison have experienced explosive growth. This has been driven in large part by technology advancements in the semiconductor industry. This seminar focuses specifically on advancements in the control of motors, with an emphasis on field-oriented principles with brushless AC motors.
TI's Jacinto TDA2/TDA3 System-on-Chip (SoC) family offers scalable and open solutions based on a heterogeneous hardware and common software architecture for Advanced Driver Assistance System (ADAS) applications including camera-based front (mono/stereo), rear, surround view and night vision systems in addition to multi-range radar and sensor fusion systems.
This training series provides an overview of the evaluation and development platforms as well as getting started with the software and development tools offered by TI on the Jacinto TDA2/TDA3 processors.
One of the key systems in a solar energy harvester is a solar inverter. A solar inverter, or any kind of inverter for that matter, will take a Direct Current voltage input and convert it to an Alternating Current output that can be used to power standard appliances and electronics in a home or business. While just about any high power DC source can be used, the largest sector of inverter growth is in renewables, particularly solar applications. Watch this series to help you mitigate multiple solar inverter design challenges.
Although motor drives have been around for many years, trends in Industry 4.0 such as TSN, industrial IoT, and functional safety are revolutionizing the role a drive takes in the Smart Factory. Where typically its main function was to drive a motor, a servo drive now must include other features to conform with the needs of Industry 4.0. This paired with the rapid growth of the robotics market has created a need for Smart Servo drives with multi-axis capabilities.
Hundreds of millions mechanical water meters are deployed around the world today. Market pressure pushes water utilities to add intelligence and allow for automated readout and billing on top of water waste control. RF-enabled electronic flow measurement modules provide a cost-effective solution without full meter replacement and are the main building block for fully electronic smart water meters with impeller principle.
This presentation will focus on the voltage and current monitoring solutions within HEV/EV system – specifically on overcoming the challenges of high voltages and maintaining an isolation barrier. Afterwards, we will discuss specific op amp parameters to consider for monitoring within the on-board charger (OBC), battery management system (BMS), DC/DC converter, and inverter end equipments.
