Webcast: Design Techniques for Reducing Power Consumption and Harmful Thermal Events in Industrial Designs

Analog Devices will host a webinar about design techniques for reducing power consumption and harmful thermal events in industrial designs. The webcast will present new technology that reduces the power dissipated in the module, regardless of what output load is connected. It will also look at the performance of these devices when the supply is run from a switching regulator rather than with a linear regulator. The ADI webinar will take place next Wednesday on October 19, 2011 at 2:00 PM EDT.

The webcast will also look at the performance of these devices when the supply is run from a switching regulator rather than with a linear regulator. The Analog Devices online seminar is ideal for engineers involved in industrial control design.

Overview

As industrial control system complexities increase, module case sizes are reducing and channel counts are increasing. With reducing module size come a reduced power budget; there is only a limited amount of power dissipation that the system can handle. Designers often need to trade off other specs in the system (such as reducing the output load that the system can handle) or reduce the numbers of channels in the system.

This webcast will present a typical analog module configuration and show how to calculate the maximum ambient temperature that the system can tolerate, based on maximum output load requirements. We then look at a new technology to reduce the power dissipated in the module, regardless of what output load is connected, and especially under a fault conditions on the output. Finally, we will look at the performance of these devices when the supply is run from a switching regulator rather than with a linear regulator.
