One of my former Intersil coworkers, Philip Harris, is presenting a webcast next week on high-performance power converters. He is pitching this webcast as “giving you the design tools and the knowledge that you need so that you can get it right on the first design pass.” I've worked with Harris before. He knows what he's talking about, and he's good with customers, so it should be a good presentation.
The webinar is scheduled for Thursday, April 18, at 2:00 p.m. EDT (11:00 a.m. PDT).
Here's the quick overview from Intersil:
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.
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
