San Jose, Calif.—Fairchild Semiconductor's sixth annual Worldwide Power Seminars, starting in September, cover design techniques, product technologies, and industry trends specifically focused on energy-efficient applications.
"Fairchild's in-depth Power Seminars are presented by energy-efficiency experts in the field of power electronics," said Andrea Mirenda, vice president of marketing. "These experts will discuss methods to optimize system power with specific analog, discrete, and optoelectronic solutions. Design engineers can expect to learn techniques to improve system performance, comply with energy-efficiency regulations, and achieve significant overall system-level cost savings."
The 2008-2009 program for these comprehensive one-day sessions include:
•BLDC Ripple Torque Reduction via Modified Sinusoidal PWM
•Board Level Evaluation of Power Quad Flat No-Lead (PQFN) Packages
•Design Considerations for Asymmetric Half-Bridge Converters
•Designing Auxiliary Power Supplies for High Efficiency and Low Standby Power
•From Powder to Transformer
•MOSFET Selection to Minimize Losses in Low-Output-Voltage DC/DC Converters
•Understanding Interleaved Boundary Conduction Mode PFC Converters
The seminars will open up in more than twenty cities across North and South America and Asia. They'll be presented across Europe starting in February. Click here for a list of the locations, schedules, and descriptions of each technical session, as well as registration information.
