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.
The Internet of Things (IoT) is now part of the smarter grid through the adoption of IPv6 communications networks. These 6LoWPAN-based networks address key concerns such as standards-based interoperability, reliability, low power, and long-distance connectivity.
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.
While the market requires better power performance, it also continuously demands more functionality from devices. The challenge many developers face today is maintaining or improving battery operating life while simultaneously increasing a device’s capabilities. For many devices, it is not feasible to increase battery size or capacity.
TI's PGA460-Q1 is the industry’s most flexible ultrasonic sensor. It supports wide distance detection range at low power, enabling automotive park assist and industrial applications.
Ultrasonic sensing techniques have been popular in smart water meters because the technology avoids any moving parts which are prone to degrade over the lifetime of the product. The MSP430FR6047 microcontroller (MCU) family takes ultrasonic sensing solutions to next level of performance delivering <25ps of accuracy, detection of low flow rates <1 liter/hour and high precision of <5ps.
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 6-part training will provide technical overviews of various features on the TM4C129x Series Microcontrollers developed specifically for applications that simultaneously connect, communicate and control.
The intent of this workshop is to be a place where a person with a few C skills and some microcontroller experience can familiarize themself with the Tiva TM4C123x series parts, Code Composer Studio, TivaWare for C Series and the process of programming these microcontrollers. If you lack C programming skills, there are many courses on the Internet where you can gain them ... that knowledge can form the basis for a rewarding career.
