For noise-critical portable applications, such as GPS receivers, connectivity, and sensing, power supply designers always had to choose between longer battery run time (from higher efficiency) or higher signal chain performance (from the increased sensor sensitivity possible with a quieter power supply). For line-powered industrial or communications equipment applications, designers have been forced to dissipate significant amounts of power in LDOs to achieve the desired noise performance. Achieving both low noise and high efficiency was impossible.
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.
Battery life cycle is a key for high-cell-count battery pack-based end-equipment. Low quiescent current (Iq) consumption of DC-DC converters is a major feature that helps achieve longer battery life cycles. TI’s latest buck converters boast low Iq consumption as they maintain high efficiency in the active mode (heavy loads) as well as extend battery life during standby modes. This training will cover an overview of battery powered industrial applications and the specific power consumption requirements for these end equipments.
Join our webinar series, as we explore different industry trends and technologies across our diverse product portfolio. Over the coming months, our experts will cover the latest analog, power management and embedded processing topics, across both automotive and industrial applications.
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.
Voltage supervisors increase the system reliability and robustness by ensuring that power rails are active only during stable power supply. This is achieved through functions such as: precise voltage monitoring, over-voltage protection, power failure indicator, processor monitoring, power sequencing, battery backup, and reset latching.
In this series, you will learn about the:
This training series will highlight what VREFs are, will discuss the values that VREFs bring to different systems, and will review the technical aspects and parameters to consider when designing with VREFs.
The UCD3138 is a digital power supply controller from Texas Instruments offering superior levels of integration and performance in a single chip solution. This training series introduces and overviews the basics of digital power tools, firmware development, and project structure to get started faster using the UCD3138 family.
Each of the tutorials include hands on practice with the Fusion Digital Power™ software suite and Code Composer Studio™ tools, which enable customers to configure and monitor key system parameters.
In this training series you will learn more about the TPS23861 PSE controller in combination with the MSP430 reference code for power port management.
This topic will cover 5 examples of power supply designs for various different industrial applications. Including AC/DC, 24V DC/DC Isolated, Battery Pack Charging, Fly-Buck™s and HV DC/DC. The designs will be covered in depth, including component choices, challenges and solutions.
This 7-part series discusses tips and best practices for selecting the appropriate components for your switching power supply.
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
TI has a variety of both analog and digital sequencers and system health monitors used in a wide variety of applications. Our analog LM388X sequencers are simple to use and easy to design with, to ensure systems consisting of 3 to 9 rails are powered up and powered down in the proper order. The UCD90XXX family of PMBus / I2C addressable digital power supply sequencers are for more complex systems, and enable sequencing up to 32 rails (or more when devices are cascaded).
Learn how to simplify the product selection and power supply design processes for Wide VIN DC-DC step-down ICs in Industry 4.0 applications, and how these processes differ for power modules versus buck converters.
Riding Out Automotive Transients : Architecting Front End Power Conversion Stage for Automotive Off-Battery Loads
With rapidly expanding electronic content in latest generation of cars, there is an ever increasing need for power conversion from the car battery rail. The 12-V battery rail is subject to a variety of transients. This presents a unique challenge in terms of the power architecture for off-battery systems. This presentation introduces the different types of transients that occur in automotive battery rails, the causes of those transients, and the standards and specifications defining the test conditions for those transients.
Why should you understand power management?
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.
