EMI (electromagnetic interference) mitigation is a critical step in the design process in most electronic systems, and especially so in the automotive world. In many cases, automotive OEM emissions requirements are even more stringent than both national and international standards bodies like the FCC. Unfortunately, by their nature, switching regulators are sources of EMI; but, in order to keep power supply designs small and efficient, switchers are a critical component. So how can you reap the benefits of a switching regulator while still meeting challenging EMI requirements?

Near Field Communication (NFC) is a radio technology enabling bi-directional short range wireless communication between devices to make life easier and more convenient for worldwide consumers by simplifying transactions, digital content exchange, and electronic device connection with a touch.
In today’s computing environment, CPUs, FPGAs, ASICs and even peripherals are growing increasingly complex and, consequently, so do their power delivery requirements. To handle the higher demands, multiphase regulators are becoming increasingly common on motherboards in many areas of computing--from laptops and tablets to servers and Ethernet switches. Designing with these regulators is more challenging than using conventional switchers and linear regulators, but the benefits of multiphase outweigh the complexity for high-performance power applications.
In this training, the audience will learn about the unique challenges faced by automotive system designers today to implement circuitry to detect external switches in a vehicle. The audience will understand the unique features offered by the MSDI and how they help solve these challenges. The audience will also learn about some of the more advanced features offered by the MSDI and how a system designer can take advantage of them in their design. The application of using the MSDI in an industrial system will also be briefly discussed.
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; this means that developers need to achieve higher performance within the same power footprint, if battery life is not to be compromised.
