Supply Design Tutorial
This series of tutorials explains
in-depth design steps for the buck and the boost topology DC-DC
switching regulators, supplemented by dedicated sessions on PCB layout
and signal edge control for EMI that apply to all switching regulators.
The series is split into several parts providing details, hints
and tips which are useful even to the most veteran power supply
designers. Part 1 is online now.
For the longest time, most of the
attention in engineering was (and a lot still is) directed to a great
extent to the digital parts of electronic design and the related
intelligent subsystems. Power, at best, was given a space on the board
to populate with a supply that met the specs and fit the space, or else.

Within external and internal power supplies working with
230VAC noise filtering is mandatory to comply with European and global
EMI reduction rules. When it comes to filtering through chokes the
magnetic material plays a major role to comply with that. The webinar
will show you which components will help you to reduce size and weight
while keeping the performance of filtering on the same level and you
will learn how to choose the right magnetic filter.
