TI’s op amp specs are generally better than or equal to nearly all of the legacy part specs. Whether your focus is on personal electronics, industrial or medical, every engineer interested in learning how to combat the problem of why our higher performance, lower cost op amps sometimes don’t work in legacy sockets should view this training. Learn from a training structured “definition by example”, based on real world cases to de-mystify these “TI doesn’t work in my legacy socket” occurrences.
The topics will cover system design issue and solution for Building Automation, Power Delivery and Test & Measurement. TI experts introduce the latest technology and innovation system reference design. Discover ways to enhance the time-to-market and create safer and efficient industrial systems.
The linear amplifier troubleshooting guide highlights various techniques to assist with application problem-solving, debugging and datasheet measurements on TI specific products. The hands-on courses aid in circuit analysis, isolate the root cause of an application non-conformance and provide detailed product level information to a TI representative. Industry experts present each topic in order to help reduce debugging time and move quickly through troubleshooting to production.
