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.
Learn the features and benefits of TI's new DC/DC power topology, the series capacitor buck converter, and get started using it in your space-constrained design.
Series discusses provides an introduction and subsequent details on how to power the PMBUS.
Learn about solutions that pair the flexibility of digital power control with C2000 MCUs and in-line current sensing with the high-power efficiency of GaN.
In this training series you will learn more about the TPS23861 PSE controller in combination with the MSP430 reference code for power port management.
EMI (electromagnetic interference) mitigation is a critical step in the design process in most electronic systems, and especially so in the automotive world. In many cases, automotive OEM emissions requirements are even more stringent than both national and international standards bodies like the FCC. Unfortunately, by their nature, switching regulators are sources of EMI; but, in order to keep power supply designs small and efficient, switchers are a critical component. So how can you reap the benefits of a switching regulator while still meeting challenging EMI requirements?
We live in a world where design engineers are on a seemingly constant pursuit for higher efficiency. Everyone wants to do more with less power. Higher system efficiency is a team effort that includes (but is not limited to) better-performing gate drivers, controllers and new wide-bandgap technologies. In this multi-part video series, we will focus on the gate drivers and how choosing the right driver can help your whole system design. You will learn about important gate driver specs, why they’re important, and how they can influence the systems around them.
Non-technical losses (“theft”) account for billions of dollars of revenue loss for utility providers around the world as individuals are able to hack meters to slow or stop the accumulation of energy usage statistics. This loss has driven increased requirements for enhancing the protection designed into new smart meters. This training session will discuss different methods of attacking smart meters and how TI’s analog portfolio can be used to detect or even prevent these attacks. In one scenario magnets are used to saturate any transformers present in the system.
