Analog Devices’ Technical Webcast ‘Powering Your Circuit’ Focuses on Power Supply Design Considerations
-- Scheduled for July 13, 2011, the Webcast is the latest in a series of tutorials from Analog Devices
to focus on fundamentals of designing with semiconductors for signal processing applications.
NORWOOD, Mass.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--
Analog Devices, Inc. (ADI), a world leader in semiconductors for high-performance signal processing
applications, will broadcast its “Powering
Your Circuit” webcast on July 13, 2011, at 2:00 pm EDT. This 60-minute webcast is the first dealing with the
important – but often overlooked subject – of power supply design.
About The ‘Powering Your
Circuit’ Webcast The webcast will explore power supply operation, including the different types of
power supplies, various conversion methods, how power supplies affect the signal chain and how to select the best
regulator for your circuit. This webcast will additionally explain phenomenon such as noise, ripple, line and load
regulation, power-supply rejection ratio, the effects of temperature change and other specifications that affect
power supply performance.
Who Should Attend Engineers and students new to the field, as well as those more
experienced engineers looking for a refresher on power system design and component selection, will find this
webcast very useful.
The Presenter Andy Jenkins is an applications engineer in ADI’s
Power Management Group. Andy has a B.Sc. Degree in Electronics from Southampton University in the U.K., holds two
U.S. patents and has authored several technical papers on the subject of power management.
Fundamentals of Designing with Semiconductors For Signal Processing Applications Webcast Series From
Throughout 2011, Analog Devices is presenting the “Fundamentals of Designing with
Semiconductors For Signal Processing Applications,” a monthly webcast series that guides participants through each
stage of the basic signal chain, from amplifiers to data converters – those components that convert the analog
electronic signal into a digital stream – then to the heart of many modern circuits, the digital processor, and
then back to the analog domain. The series also covers what is needed to power today’s circuits, how to make them
portable, how to lay them out, as well as provide an introduction to design tools, tips and techniques that help
solve design challenges quickly. Each webcast is followed by a Q&A with a technical expert. To learn more about
