Learn how to achieve higher switching frequency operation with a smaller solution size using a monolithic solution for DC/DC Buck Design, cover power management improvements achievable with COT control, and show solutions for working with Magnetics.

This half-day course will be taught by Hebberly Ahatlan, Field Applications Engineer at Wurth Electronics Midcom, and Robert Halbach, Director, North America Field Applications Engineer at Monolithic Power Systems. 


8:30am Welcome coffee and breakfast

9:00am - 9:45 Section 1:  Monolithic Power Systems - DC/DC Buck Design Basics 

Understand how to achieve a higher switching frequency with a smaller solution size using a monolithic solution for DC/DC Buck converter design.

9:45am - 10:30am Section 2:  Wurth Electronics Midcom - Magnetics basics

How does inductor construction affect switch-mode power supply performance and why? Not all inductors are created equal. Learn why .

10:45am - 11:30am Section 3:  Monolithic Power Systems - Digital Constant On-Time (COT) Controls  

Learn how COT Control simplifies design and eliminates complicated compensation network efforts.

11:30am - 12:15pm Section 4: Wurth Electronics Midcom - Inductor Applications

Use inductors the right way. Every inductor is created for a particular purpose. Learn how to pick the right one for your application. 

12:15pm - Lunch
