Texas Instruments Announces Unitrode Power Supply Design Seminar Schedule

February 21, 2001 by Jeff Shepard

Texas Instruments Inc. (TI, Dallas, TX) announced the schedule for its worldwide Unitrode Power Supply Design Seminar Series for 2001. TI will conduct these one-day seminars in 36 North American markets beginning on April 3, 2001. Seminars in Europe will begin on May 28, and the dates and locations for seminars in Asia will be announced late this year. TI reports that this new series continues the Unitrode tradition of technical presentations that contain a blend of advanced power supply concepts, tutorial review of basic principles, and "hands-on" application examples.

Topics for this year's discussion include the design of stable control loops, implication of synchronous rectifier to the design of isolated, single-ended forward converters, design and application for high-speed power MOSFET gate drive circuits, minimizing winding loss in magnetic drives, and whether internal compensation is a boon or a bane. Topics further include an analytical comparison of alternative control techniques for powering next-generation microprocessors, new power supply control products from TI and high-efficiency, regulated charge pumps for high-current applications.

The cost of the day-long seminar in North America is $95, excluding VAT. Pricing includes a continental breakfast, lunch, a copy of the seminar manual, and presentation materials. More information may be accessed on the TI website.
