In this training series you will learn more about the TPS23861 PSE controller in combination with the MSP430 reference code for power port management.
Just getting started with LED or need a refresher on what tradeoffs to anticipate with different topologies? The below video provides a quick and easy-to-understand overview of five topologies.
View a broad curriculum of training for designing with various power supply topologies, as well as step by step instructions to build complete power topology reference designs.
This training video will firstly introduce the configuration of TI's capacitive isolation technology, and compare over other methods, like opto-coupler, transformative. Another important benefit - "fail open" of TI's capacitor isolation, will also be discussed.
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.
In testing in the lab, Carmen takes a six phase buck regulator through basic validation testing in the lab with plenty of tips and waveforms shared. Let Carmen show you how to test transient response, input and output ripple, phase stability, and thermal performance. Additionally, TI engineers blog about various lab tricks related to multiphase devices.
This 7-part series discusses tips and best practices for selecting the appropriate components for your switching power supply.
This section will cover issue to consider when choosing your switching frequency
This training video summarizes the content of this gate driver series and the key references.
In this section, a summary of the entire “Anti-tamper Techniques to Thwart Attacks on Smart Meters” training module would be covered. This summary would cover the “Detecting case tamper attacks using inductive switches “, “Detecting magnetic tampering using hall-effect sensors “, and “Hardening a meter against magnetic tamper attacks “ sections of the training series. Links will be provided for the reference designs and design tools that were discussed during this training series.
Quiescent current, or IQ for short, is one of the most critical design concepts for power supply designers to master. IQ, or the amount of current when your IC is in a no-load or non-switching state, may be an easy concept to digest at first, but can come with tradeoff decisions. The resources below can help demystify IQ, as well as provide a path forward with TI’s new starting line-up of ultra-low power management ICs.
Keep these resources in your toolbox, and come back often to ensure you’re effectively optimizing your whole power tree for optimal system lifetime
