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.
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.

As switching converters have evolved, they have taken on a host of new features to operate more efficiently and quietly. To some, however, all these new features listed on the front page of the datasheet may seem foreign. This training series dives into those features to explain the true benefits of each and help you decide which are necessary for your power supply design. Specifically covered in this series are the buck converter topics of:
The Phase Shifted Full Bridge (PSFB) has always been considered the best design for high power DC/DC conversion. However, a newer technology called Full Bridge LLC (FB-LLC) has recently been used and accepted for high power DC/DC conversion. In this 3 part series, we will go in-depth in discussing the pros and cons of both the PSFB and FB-LLC. We will then compare the basic problems between the PSFB and FB-LLC and give ideas on how to choose between the two given a certain application. Lastly, we will review some Reference Designs.
In this 3 part series, we will discuss PCB Layouts for Switched Mode Power Supplies. The purpose of these videos will be to give the designer some insight into the issues that need to be considered when laying out a PCB. Topics that will be discussed in these videos include schematic diagrams, parasitic components formed in a PCB layout, effects on EMI, and examples of real TI reference designs.
The Ethernet ecosystem is evolving with the introduction of the IEEE 802.3bt standard. Regardless if you’re an expert in PoE or just getting introduced to the technology, the below trainings provide a good starting point for understanding how TI’s portfolio of 802.3bt Powered Devices (PDs) and Power Sourcing Equipment (PSE) Controllers can be used in traditional and emerging Ethernet applications.
