The Getting Started with Current Sense Amplifiers series helps engineers learn how to maximize the performance achieved when measuring current with a current sense amplifier (also called a current shunt monitor).
This is a series of short videos, each addressing a different topic. While intended as a series to be viewed in order, each session is stand-alone and can be viewed without the need to watch it all if there is a specific topic you are interested in learning more about.
Explore several subtle nuances to significantly improve power supply performance. Examples include: the hidden advantages of synchronous regulators, a module that features the best attributes of a switcher AND an LDO, and tips to reduce system noise by manipulating output capacitor combinations.
Power electronics impacts our lives in so many ways - from new power circuits that extend battery life to voltage regulators that help manage and distribute energy more efficiently from the grid to the consumer. This four-part Power 101 fundamentals course covers several topics that a design engineer needs to understand when it comes to power management design.
These training videos will be used to better understand LDOs, and includes more information on designing the best ADC power supply, stabilizing an LDO, measuring LDO noise and power supply rejection ratio, sourcing 5-A or more with current sharing regulators, measuring thermal resistance between junction temperature and ambiance, and measuring the ADC power supply rejection.
MSP430 MCUs featuring CapTIvate technology are the most noise-immune capacitive touch MCUs, and first to feature an IEC61000-4-6 certified solution.

In-field firmware updates are becoming an increasingly popular feature supported on products that are deployed to the field; however, this feature is also very commonly exploited by attackers, and if vulnerable, can compromise the security of the system. In this series we will discuss the various security concerns for in-field firmware updates, and a solution for increasing the security of in-field firmware updates in ultra-low power MSP microcontrollers - called the Crypto-Bootloader.
As more and more IoT products are being connected to the internet, the security of these devices is becoming increasingly important. A security-focused approach should be taken when building IoT products to protect users’ privacy and block any malicious activity.
