Webinar: Overcome the challenges of powering FPGAs in space applications


November 10, 2021

As FPGAs are continually upgrading their performance, so too is the need for their power consumption. As a result, designers are requiring systems with increased power density that have a level of reliability needed for the harsh environment in space. This webinar covered:

  • The advantages of using TI’s radiation hardened and space enhanced plastic power components over up-screened commercial or automotive alternatives
  • Designing with buck converters to create higher power density systems for the increasing core power needs of FPGAs
  • Different methods to implement current sharing for LDOs to improve load regulation and accuracy on sensitive analog rails                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                             .


  • TI power solutions (2:00 - 9:20 min)
  • Designing with buck converters for core power rails (9:20 - 16:34 min)
  • Current sharing for LDOs (16-34 - 22:30 min)
  • Q&A (22:30 - 31:00 min)                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                         .
