In the past the selection between an LDO and DC/DC converter centered on solution size and generated noise. If these were the only considerations, the LDO would usually win “hands down”. However, with the advent of the new NanoModule DC/DC converters from Texas Instruments, the designer now has greater flexibility when deciding on the best power system solution. This webinar will explore the pros and cons between an LDO and DC/DC converter, such as solution size, generated noise, efficiency, and ease-of-use. Examples of how to select between these two power solutions will be given.
