Overview:
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

Duration: 50 minutes + Q&A

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.
