Power Designs for MCU controlled, Low-power Portable, Industrial and Metering Applications
Battery efficiency is a major focus for portable electronics where battery life is a premium. All of the portable devices use DC-DC conversion to get the required voltage for the components used in their designs. These components typically consist of MCUs, ASICs, display drivers and memory, which require different voltage levels and also have different current consumption requirements. In addition, these components have varying load profiles and are expected to use the battery charge very efficiently over a long period of time. Conflicting power conversion requirements in portable designs need careful analysis of the available analog and digital loop techniques and an understanding of currently available device technologies for efficiency optimization.
What attendees will learn:
Attendees will become familiar with the analog and digital loop control concepts and how these concepts are used to optimize light/heavy load efficiency in portable electronics designs. Specifically, the following topics will be covered.
- DC-DC power conversion concepts
- Analog vs. digital loop control
- Efficiency optimization in light and heavy load conditions
- Optimizing power consumption for MCU standby modes
Who should attend:
DC-DC Power Converter Designers for portable applications who are trying to optimize their designs for both light load and heavy load efficiency.
