TI empowers design engineers at APEC 2017

Mar 1, 2017

DALLAS, March 1, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Texas Instruments (TI) (NASDAQ: TXN), the worldwide leader in power-management integrated circuits, will give design engineers the "Power to Do Anything" through a series of demonstrations and presentations at the Applied Power Electronics Conference (APEC), March 26-30, in Tampa, Florida.

Find TI power experts in booth No. 701, as the company reveals new products and unveils end-to-end power-management system solutions including hardware, software and reference designs that help power supply engineers get to market quickly.

At APEC, TI will give designers the power to:

  • Innovate:
    • See how the industry's first end-to-end gallium nitride (GaN) solution revolutionizes data center AC-to-processor power density by over 3x, with TI's GaN technology clocking in at over 7 million device reliability hours.
    • Experience the design simplicity that power modules provide as TI takes the wraps off its new high-current PMBus module with telemetry for communications applications.
    • Watch two new low quiescent current (IQ) step-down DC/DC converters power the next evolution of automotive USB Type-C™ and industrial heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) applications.
    • View the industry's first multiphase bidirectional current controller efficiently transfer power between 48-V and 12-V automotive dual-battery systems.
  • Design:
    • Analyze and interpret designs with new WEBENCH® tools that simplify design of isolated and non-isolated, AC/DC and DC/DC power and energy storage subsystems. Go beyond the traditional concerns of performance, footprint and cost to design a transformer, mitigate electromagnetic interference (EMI) noise and handle noise-sensitive loads.
    • Check out the new TI Power Management Lab Kit (TI-PMLK) buck-boost board and experiment book to better understand the trade-offs related to common power-supply parameters such as power losses, converter efficiency, stability, load and line regulation, and more.
  • Learn:
    • Attend the APEC plenary "Power Semiconductor Technology – Flexibility for Tomorrow's Solutions" by Ahmad Bahai, Texas Instruments chief technologist and senior vice president. From 1:30 to 2 p.m. on Monday, March 27. Bahai will show how the demand for smart, high-efficiency power management is outpacing the average growth rate of the semiconductor industry.
    • Join TI power experts at more than 30 technical sessions covering topics such as renewable energy systems, wireless technology and GaN device reliability validation.
    • Meet Bob Mammano, author of "Fundamentals of Power Supply Design," your new indispensable reference book for all things power, daily in the TI booth. Enter for a chance to win an exclusive autographed pre-release copy.
    • Grab TI's new month-to-month power-topology guide in the TI booth while they last.
