The LVDS training series is designed for learning the fundamentals of Low Voltage Differential Signalling technology. It begins with an overview of LVDS technology, and then expands on the advantages of using LVDS such as noise immunity, EMI reduction, low power, and etc. Next, M-LVDS and communication typologies commonly used with LVDS/M-LVDS Interface are explained. Typical use case of LVDS interface and how to calculate LVDS data rate are presented in this training series as well.
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:
PT100/500/1000 Resistance Temperature Detectors (RTDs) are widely used in grid infrastructure and factory automation applications where high precision temperature measurement is often required. Technical requirements include either 20 mK precise Differential Temperature Measurement (DTM) for heat and cold meters from 0 to 180°C or better than 400 mK precision over the full range of -200 to 850°C for industrial sensor transmitters.
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.
