Webcasts: Intelligent power supply design; integrating measurements, simulations in circuits
Those involved in designing power supplies or circuit design might appreciate several sponsored, archived Webcasts available from Design News, another Reed Business Information publication.
"Designing Intelligent Power Supplies" is sponsored by Microchip. Increased use of digital controls provide more ways design power supplies. Understanding the four levels of microcontroller integration possible in a power supply design, and the features and functions possible with each level can simplify the decision process. The Webcast covers impact of each level on the analog design, how each level shifts issues associated with control and reliability, traditional hardware design, the microcontroller, and software design.
"Integrating Measurements and Simulations throughout the Circuit Design Process" is sponsored by National Instruments. Shrinking product development cycles and increasing circuit complexity require engineers to rethink electronic circuits design. To meet these challenges, engineers have turned to using measurements and simulations throughout the design process. By combining these saves time and money by reducing the number of prototypes and improves quality by integrating real measurements into the simulation process.
The session covers how to use measurements and simulations to help at the board level, select your next electric component, and improve the circuit verification process.
