The need for improved power density is clear, but what limits designers from increasing power density today? Watch this five-part training series where we outline how to achieve higher power density by examining four critical aspects of high-power-density solutions, as well as relevant TI technologies and products supporting these specific requirements.
Topics in this training series:
TI Precision Labs (TIPL) is the most comprehensive online classroom for analog signal chain designers. From foundational knowledge to advanced concepts, our logical, sequenced and comprehensive teaching approach is both intuitive and practical. The training series, which includes videos and downloadable reference materials, will deepen the technical expertise of experienced engineers and accelerate the development of those early in their career.
For anti-tampering, it is common to try to detect the presence of a strong magnet. In this section, we will cover the use of hall sensors for low-power detection of strong magnetic fields in three dimensions. Details on our magnetic tamper detection reference design, TIDA-00839, will be provided as well as some of the design considerations that were kept in mind when creating this reference design.
In this section, we will cover how to harden a meter against these magnetic tamper attacks by using shunts for current sensors. For poly-phase implementations, I will go over how to use isolated delta sigma modulators to add the necessary isolation to use shunt current sensors and create magnetically immune poly-phase energy measurement systems. The TIDA-00601 and TIDA-01094 reference designs, which show how to implement a poly-phase isolated shunt measurement system, will be discussed as well as the associated AMC1304 high-side power supplies used in these designs.
In this training series, we will touch the gate driver applications, fundamentals of low side gate driver, high- and low side gate driver and isolated gate driver. And we will surely go deep and help you understand the gate driver design considerations with TI reference design and the corresponding critical waveforms.
The first section will discuss the applications where the different kinds of gate driver will be used, and we will also identify the gate drivers location used in each typical system architecture.
This training video will be introducing Popular Power Semiconductors - Si-MOSFETs, IGBTs, SiC-MOSFETs and GaN, and identify the differences among this devices in the perspective the gate driver design and select consideration.
This training video illustrates the operation fundamentals for the low side and half-bridge gate driver.
This training video discusses the gate driver select considerations and key specifications, and also introduces the novel gate driver specs for high end gate driver.
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.
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.
