Winchester, UK - Specialist in energy-efficient power conversion, Power Integrations (San Jose, Calif.) has launched PI University, an online technical learning center featuring practical instructional videos that build to form a complete how-to tutorial in power supply circuit design.
PI University Season One will cover a broad range of power supply design topics, including bringing up a power supply for the first time; identifying and troubleshooting problems; complying with energy-efficiency standards; measurement and testing techniques. A new video will be released each week through January 2010; courses released today include:
- Testing Compliance to Energy-Efficiency Standards
- Fixing a Flyback Supply with No Output Voltage
- Techniques for Measuring Efficiency
"Power Integrations' engineering team has decades of hands-on power supply design experience," said Peter Vaughan, director of applications engineering at Power Integrations. "PI University allows us to share that expertise with the design community through step-by-step video tutorials. Whether you are designing your very first power supply or are already an expert, the PI University courses offered each week will demonstrate new approaches to designing, specifying, and testing highly efficient power supplies."
PI University courses are available online now at www.powerint.com/piUniversity
