The convenience of a smaller, reversible connector makes USB-C attractive for charging and powering portable devices, including those that traditionally used AC-DC barrel adapters. Advanced features like 5G and 4k displays in portable devices are driving up power consumption over 15W, and higher battery capacities are needed to support longer runtimes. For these gadgets, USB Power Delivery (PD) enables fast charging that gets these products back in operation with little downtime. For designers, however, compliance with the USB-C and USB PD standard typically requires complex firmware development and additional hardware components. This webinar examines how Maxim’s USB-C chargers and out-of-the-box compliant, standalone USB PD controllers reduce development time by eliminating complex firmware and minimize the solution size through greater integration and high performance.

Sagar holds a Master of Science degree in Electrical Engineering from Stony Brook University and a Master of Business Administration from Arizona State University.

Accurate battery state-of-charge (SOC), long runtime and shelf life, and safety are critical considerations when developing highly reliable Li+ battery-powered portable devices. This webinar explores how to address these challenges using one of Maxim’s latest highly integrated fuel gauges. By implementing the ModelGauge™ m5 EZ algorithm, this fuel gauge eliminates battery characterization for most popular Li+ cells, greatly improving time-to-market. The algorithm leads to an accurate prediction of SOC that improves the user experience as well as enhanced safety across a wide range of benign and harsh operating conditions. Furthermore, the low quiescent current of the IC allows for longer shelf life and longer run-time. Integration of fuel gauge, protection control, and authentication enhances safety and minimizes the bill-of-materials (BOM) and PCB area.
Speaker: Bakul Damle
Bakul Damle is a Business Director at Maxim Integrated, responsible for the battery management product line. His current interests include battery and power management such as fuel gauges, battery safety, protection, and authentication, wireless and USB Type-C/Power Delivery battery chargers.

Space constraint, battery life and highest signal fidelity are common challenges when designing precision vital monitoring devices and gadgets that raise the bar in the pro-wearables space.

Our next-generation family of low power SIMO PMICs master these design challenges by providing the world’s smallest solution size with precision signal integrity and highest system efficiency. During this webinar, we will explore a live demo built around the SIMO PMIC featuring:
  • Cut your solution size by half
  • Deliver highest system efficiency to extend battery life by 20% 
  • Provide lowest ripple rejection of 20mVpp
The live demo being showcased is relevant to the current world since it tracks vitals which play a key role in determining COVID-19 symptoms. In addition, the design is applicable for multiple Low Voltage battery applications such as Smart Homes, Artificial Intelligence Assistants, portable at home medical equipment and more. Lastly, the webinar will cover in-depth the SIMO architecture and how it enhances battery life for Li+ applications.

The demand for highly flexible and adaptive PMICs that power Application Processors (APs) is growing thanks to new Artificial Intelligence (AI) applications like AR/VR, embedded vision, speech processing, 3D image reconstruction, pedestrian detection, and gesture recognition, all of which require deep learning algorithms. APs must be highly flexible and configurable to implement the newest and most efficient algorithms. This mandates having a power solution that adapts and delivers to the dynamic system needs while maintaining low power consumption and maximizing run time. 

In this webinar, Gaurav Mital and Stan Bochenek discuss the challenges of powering APs in AI applications and provide a PMIC example which is best-in-class for size and efficiency. During the webinar a demo featuring NVidia's Jetson™ platform, shows how a computationally-intensive object recognition platform can be powered by Maxim’s high-performance PMIC solution. Learn how to drive your highest energy power needs efficiently for the next wave of AI applications.

Although adding new features to our systems is very important to keep an edge over the competition, there are many situations where improving our system’s reliability is just as important. What’s the point of having a system with many fancy features if it keep breaking in the middle of operation? This webinar will go in-depth on why adding Error Correcting Code (ECC) to the system’s memories is a must to build a robust product.

Automotive USB ports have a problem. Although vehicle OEMs invest in quality charging technology, passengers bring unsuitable cables into the car. They blame the car for the poor performance since they don’t have the same problem at home. This common scenario is a frustration point for OEMs, but a low-voltage power supply gives them a way to fix it. The technology, called VCONN, communicates with passenger accessories and cables and is a key differentiator for a positive passenger experience. This webinar explains the importance of adding VCONN to OEM RFQ requirements for automotive USB-PD ports as the market shifts from traditional standard A receptacles to newer USB Type-C™ receptacles. It also discusses how adding VCONN to USB-C ports makes it possible to detect and query passenger’s type-C cable identity and performance features.
