Engineer It is an educational, “how-to” video series where TI experts provide customers with fundamental knowledge and solutions to overcome design challenges. Here, you can learn how to spin your motor in minutes, avoid amplifier input/output swing limitations, test and isolate power supplies and more from industry experts.
All the content from the 4-part webinar series launched last November 2018 is now available as an open source in our Training Portal for all of the users interested in the motor drives and control topic.
ESD (electrostatic discharge) and surge transients are some of the most common events to plague ICs. However, just because your system is likely to encounter an event doesn’t mean that decisions related to protection should be rushed. We’ve put together two series of trainings to cover critical considerations regarding ESD and surge. Watch all of the short videos in order for a comprehensive overview, or learn at your own pace and choose the specific topic you need a refresher on.
This training series outlines key measurements for audio products, specifically signal-to-noise ratio, crosstalk and gain, intermodulation distortion, frequency response and phase, THD+N and level. These videos explain the basic principles of each measurement, why it is significant and how to test and calculate correctly.
This 7 Part Series with the MSP430 5xx Experimenters Board will cover the following topics:
- Active and low power mode operation
- Mixed signal application example
- Hardware timers to conserve power
- Implementing a fully optimized ADC12 routine
- MSP430 tools, resources, and conclusions
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.
Series discusses provides an introduction and subsequent details on how to power the PMBUS.
TI has a variety of both analog and digital sequencers and system health monitors used in a wide variety of applications. Our analog LM388X sequencers are simple to use and easy to design with, to ensure systems consisting of 3 to 9 rails are powered up and powered down in the proper order. The UCD90XXX family of PMBus / I2C addressable digital power supply sequencers are for more complex systems, and enable sequencing up to 32 rails (or more when devices are cascaded).
While motor topologies have remained relatively unchanged over the past century, control techniques by comparison have experienced explosive growth. This has been driven in large part by technology advancements in the semiconductor industry. This seminar focuses specifically on advancements in the control of motors, with an emphasis on field-oriented principles with brushless AC motors.
InstaSPIN-FOC is a sensorless field-oriented motor control algorithm which runs on select C2000 devices. This presentation is intended for customers who are currently using or considering InstaSPIN-FOC.
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?

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.
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. This curriculum will discuss how to monitor the status of an HEV/EV battery using current sense amplifiers.
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:
