HIGH-PERFORMANCE POWER CONVERSION SEMINAR

Why you should attend this free event ?

Designing high-performance power systems continues to increase in complexity year after year. Utilizing a solid design methodology for high performance power conversion is essential to achieving first-time success. You will learn new techniques for EMI mitigation, thermal modeling, PCB Layout, DC-DC designs and implementing AC-DC Front ends. Real-world applications will be used whenever possible to illustrate the workshops.

During this daylong event you will learn from industry experts and Vicor applications engineers. They will help you identify common pitfalls and guide you on a path to success when designing high performance power systems

11:15 - 11:30 Coffee Break

11:30-12:30 EMI challenges and troubleshooting techniques
Without proper consideration, EMI can derail projects and create costly delays.

With a real-world troubleshooting example, you will learn about basic EMI measurement, common and differential noise sources and identification methods, conducted EMI pre-compliance testing, layout issues, etc.

12:30-13:15 LUNCH

13:15 - 14:15 Avoiding common AC-DC design pitfalls
Design-in of AC-DC front end modules can be complicated.

This session will provide a straightforward approach for success, covering such topics as source impedance considerations, inrush current, filter resonance and damping, PFC, faults, fusing, system stability and safety.

15:30 - 16:00 Wrap up & Networking

11:30 -12:30 Modular DC-DC system design done right
Real-world systems comprise more than just the DC-DC converter itself.

Using a case study to examine the requirements of module integration into a DC-DC system, you will learn topics such as input and output filtering, protections, compatibility with the source and load dynamics.

12:30-13:15 LUNCH

13:15 - 14:15 High-performance PCB layout and thermal design techniques
Our experts will share their optimization techniques addressing the following topics:

applying thermal models and simulation, PCB layout for effective thermal management, power/signal routing and integrity in high density, high current applications to minimize board losses and maximize performance.
