Designing power systems can be a challenge, especially with the 24V and higher input voltages commonly used in industrial, medical, communications and data-center applications.
Maxim Integrated has partnered with Avnet Silica to bring you a one-day, educational seminar where you will learn how to boost efficiency and cut heat dissipation, while optimizing size, protection and isolation.
If you design power sub-systems for supply rails at 24V or higher – this informative seminar is for you. In one day, you’ll review the theoretical foundation and learn how to solve your power design challenges with a Maxim IC.
Here’s what’s in store:
Understanding the theory of switching regulators and DC-DC isolation
Designing with high-voltage, synchronous buck regulators and isolated topologies
To ensure maximum attention is given each participant, there is a limit of 30 attendees per location. Reserve your seat today!
Cost: Free (Lunch is provided)
Module 1: Designing With 24V+ Buck Regulators (Synchronous DC-DC) and Power Modules This section focuses on the theory behind switching regulators, and explains the various topologies. After discussing common requirements related to efficiency, size, protection, robustness, and standards compliance, we will cover techniques for designing high-efficiency switching regulators, gaining an understanding of thermal performance, loop compensation, soft start, and more. We will then cover how to select the optimal inductors and capacitors for switching regulators, trading off size and performance. We will end with design, simulation and testing of a typical 24V+ buck regulator in a power subsystem.
Module 2: Designing with 24V+ Isolated Power Supplies (DC-DC) This section focuses on two of the most common topologies used to implement isolated DC-DC power subsystems, with an emphasis on eliminating optocouplers. Tradeoffs in design complexity, size, and regulation accuracy will be discussed. We will then delve into the architecture and operation of iso-buck and no-opto flyback examples. We will conclude with the operational details of a typical isolated power subsystem followed by its design, simulation and testing.
