SAN JOSE, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--
Staying updated on the latest technology is one of the many challenges
engineers face today. To help designers meet this challenge, Fairchild
Semiconductor (NYSE: FCS), a leading global supplier of high
performance power and mobile solutions, is pleased to begin its eighth
season of worldwide technical power seminars.
Starting in September 2013 in Europe with 13 locations, the seminars
will also include 13 cities in the Americas and 4 in Asia in early 2014.
This seasons’ power seminar series – themed “Engineering Energy
Efficiency” – is a comprehensive one-day seminar providing rich
technical and practical presentations that combine new, advanced power
supply concepts, tutorial review of basic design principles, and
“hands-on” real-world application examples.
The focus of Fairchild power seminars is on technologies and techniques,
not products. The new topics for 2013-2014 range from:
The seminars are ideal for engineers looking for the latest advancements
in power supply design, as well as those looking for a refresher. The
attendees will receive in-depth theoretical and practical discussions on
each topic and pros and cons of different solutions to improve energy
efficiency and system performance. Each of the presentations is
accompanied by a technical paper with the full in-depth treatment of the
topic for reference.
Power Seminar technical sessions include:
The LLC Resonant Converter: Design Issues and Solutions – highlighting
the critical design issues of the LLC resonant converter including
synchronous rectification and discussing potential solutions to solve
Driving HB-LEDs in High-Power Industrial Fixtures – addressing some of
the specific challenges designers face when considering power supply
design solutions for HB-LED lighting applications.
Current Shaping Strategies for Buck Power Factor Correction (PFC) –
discussing two possible control techniques for a buck PFC converter,
where the input current is indirectly shaped by shaping the inductor
Improve Flyback Design Performance with a Rapid Iteration Approach –
highlighting capable design software that enables an engineer to
optimize a circuit by comparing the performance of many different
design alternatives in a short time.
Evolution in Packaging for Optimum Efficiency and Size in Low Voltage
DC-DC Applications – focusing on the advantages of co-packaging two
power MOSFET die along with a gate driver IC die to form a low
voltage, high current multi-chip module (MCM) synchronous buck power
