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.
Delta-sigma analog-to-digital converters (ADCs) are oversampling converters typically used in applications requiring higher resolution. However, ADCs do not work by themselves. In fact, they require several key components around them, including a front-end amplifier, a voltage reference, a clock source, power supplies, and a good layout. Many devices integrate these features together with the ADC to offer a complete system solution, which simplifies the design for customers and minimizes board space.
This training series provides background on embedded systems startup to enable users of the AM3x/AM4x/AM57x Sitara processors to make choices that reduce boot time during system design of a selected processor. It introduces the boot time components of the catalog processors, system, and the Processor Linux Software Development Kit (PLSDK). It provides first steps and capabilities to reduce boot time using the Processor SDK without significant customization. This presentation also gives developers a look beyond just the initialization of the selected OS.

Linux is well-adopted within embedded systems. But debugging Linux system issues can be overwhelming. This training series teaches the techniques of debugging kernel issues that may be encountered in embedded Linux systems. This training series explains the Linux kernel logging system and logging API, illustrates how to locate a particular device driver, and demonstrates how to read kernel oops logs.
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:
Current sense amplifiers have been implemented in applications used for current and power measurement. These simple and affordable solutions enable designers to achieve real-time overcurrent protection, system optimization and current measurement for closed-loop circuits with excellent linearity and accuracy.

More and more end equipment start to use proximity sensors to detecting the presence of nearby objects without physical contact by using electromagnetic fields, light or sound, e.g. major appliances, cell phones, robot and so on. There are many types, each suited to specific applications and environments. The object being sensed is often referred to as the proximity sensor's target. Different proximity sensor targets demand different sensors. By analyzing the basic principle of different types of sensor, comparison result with advantages and disadvantages can be achieved.
