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.
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:
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.
The HART of the Current Loop: Designing SMART Field Transmitters and PLCs with TI's Very First HART Modem
TI's Resonant Sensing Technology is changing the landscape of the white goods market and home appliances by providing sleek new interfaces, enhanced system awareness, and improved system efficiency metrics. This training session covers the Resonant Sensing fundamentals, application deep dives, and finally tricks and tips for designing with the technology.
The Phase Shifted Full Bridge (PSFB) has always been considered the best design for high power DC/DC conversion. However, a newer technology called Full Bridge LLC (FB-LLC) has recently been used and accepted for high power DC/DC conversion. In this 3 part series, we will go in-depth in discussing the pros and cons of both the PSFB and FB-LLC. We will then compare the basic problems between the PSFB and FB-LLC and give ideas on how to choose between the two given a certain application. Lastly, we will review some Reference Designs.
In this 3 part series, we will discuss PCB Layouts for Switched Mode Power Supplies. The purpose of these videos will be to give the designer some insight into the issues that need to be considered when laying out a PCB. Topics that will be discussed in these videos include schematic diagrams, parasitic components formed in a PCB layout, effects on EMI, and examples of real TI reference designs.
Shunt sensors are rapidly replacing current transformers as the preferred current sensing solution for electricity meters(e-meters) around the world.
TI’s op amp specs are generally better than or equal to nearly all of the legacy part specs. Whether your focus is on personal electronics, industrial or medical, every engineer interested in learning how to combat the problem of why our higher performance, lower cost op amps sometimes don’t work in legacy sockets should view this training. Learn from a training structured “definition by example”, based on real world cases to de-mystify these “TI doesn’t work in my legacy socket” occurrences.
The report illustrates a differentially driven signal fed into TI’s 20 bit SAR ADC. This results in raw data available for data processing. This has zero latency and high linearity.
This TI design illustrate the CW Doppler signal conditioning for an ultrasound machine. The input signal bandwidth up to 100KHz and 128 differential signals from AFEs are summed together in a differential high speed amplifier and digitized with TI SAR ADC.
