Market Focus: Reducing Cost with Integrated Isolated Auxiliary Supplies
Isolated gate drivers and digital isolators are used in a variety of automotive and industrial applications. System designers often provide a discrete, secondary-side power supply for the isolated side supply requirements for the isolation IC. However, there is a better way! Integrating these point-of-load supplies reduces cost, board space, and design complexity over disintegrated, discrete supply solution. The integrated solution is also tailored well for the application at-hand, rather than taking a generic converter and adding it to the design. Join this session as we discuss the advantages of integrated isolated auxiliary supplies over discrete ones for isolated gate drive and digital communication in various applications.
Technical Focus: Understanding Silicon Labs' Integrated DC-DC Converters
Isolated devices with integrated dc-dc are growing in popularity. However, the techniques to optimize performance from these devices are not clear. New products that may look attractive from the datasheet may present trouble in implementation that cause delay to a designer’s project. This session will provide system designers with the up-to-date state of the integrated dc-dc technologies in isolated devices so that they can make informed selection and avoid unexpected delays to their project. The training will highlight the
challenges to recognize the highest performance from these integrated products.
