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.
In depth comparison of voltage mode, current mode control vs DCAP2 and DCAP3 control modes for step down DC/DC converters.
Explore several subtle nuances to significantly improve power supply performance. Examples include: the hidden advantages of synchronous regulators, a module that features the best attributes of a switcher AND an LDO, and tips to reduce system noise by manipulating output capacitor combinations.
This training series covers critical power supply design parameters such as EMI mitigation, heat dissipation, and loop compensation. Each training module features guidance using the LM4360x/LM4600x Synchronous SIMPLE SWITCHER® step-down voltage regulator as an example device.
