High Performance Power Converters on the First Design Pass
By utilizing readily available simulation tools, essential board testing and layout techniques a reliable, high performance power design can be achieved on the first design pass. This webinar describes the design process and performance trade-offs that exist when generating a practical power supply design. Topics include using the modeling tools to reduce development time, testing the evaluation board to verify optimum design and PCB layout recommendations to provide reliable, low EMI designs.
What attendees will learn:
- Intuitive explanation of inductance and capacitance and how to tame these beasts
- Why current mode control techniques provide robust designs
- How to use modeling tools to reduce development time and obtain reliable circuit
- Key tests performed on evaluation board to verify optimum design
- PCB layout recommendations to provide reliable, low EMI designs
