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.
Here, you will find a series of design and application notes, blogs, and videos that showcase how the sequencers can be used in a number of applications, and hopefully address some issues you might encounter when using this family of devices.
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.

Understand the performance and tradeoffs of the traditional low noise and high efficiency approach of using a DC/DC followed by an LDO. Visualize other systems that could use the same approach, with the appropriate DC/DCs and LDOs in different packages and with different features.
This training series will firstly discuss the isolation requirement in power electronics system, and then compare the different driver isolation implementation methodologies. Integrated isolated gate driver shows the best performance in the perspective of size, performance and reliability.
EMI/EMC and isolation standards for motor drives provide surge, EFT, ESD and EMI protection for longer lifespan and higher reliability of your application. Watch this to understand the different standards from the system level—down to the component level.
You've heard of low quiescent current, or low Iq, but what does it mean for your design? In this training, learn how low quiescent current impacts your power supply performance, along with the benefits of alower quiescent current DC/DC switching converter
This training video will firstly discuss the configuration of the UCC2x52x gate driver and it featured benefits, then a detailed bench experiment comparison shows that UCC2x52x family gate drivers has better dynamic performance as well as stable and predictable source/sink peak current.
