Fairchild Semiconductor’s Sixth Annual Worldwide Power Seminars Provide Design Solutions to Enable Energy-Efficiency
Fairchild Semiconductor (NYSE: FCS) will begin its sixth season of worldwide technical seminars starting in September. These one day comprehensive seminars provide power design engineers design techniques, product technologies and industry trends to develop energy-efficient applications.
The 2008-2009 full-day Power Seminar technical sessions include:
-- BLDC Ripple Torque Reduction via Modified Sinusoidal PWM.
-- Board Level Evaluation of Power Quad Flat No-Lead (PQFN) Packages.
-- Design Considerations for Asymmetric Half-Bridge Converters.
-- Designing Auxiliary Power Supplies for High Efficiency and Low Standby Power.
-- From Powder to Transformer.
-- MOSFET Selection to Minimize Losses in Low-Output-Voltage DC-DC Converters.
-- Understanding Interleaved Boundary Conduction Mode PFC Converters.
Fairchild's Power Seminars will initially be held in more than twenty cities across North and South America and Asia beginning in September. A list of these locations, schedules and descriptions of each technical session, as well as registration information is available at: www.fairchildsemi.com/powerseminar/. Power Seminars are also scheduled to begin in February, 2009 across Europe.
"Fairchild's in-depth Power Seminars are presented by energy-efficiency experts in the field of power electronics. These experts will discuss methods to optimize system power with specific analog, discrete and optoelectronic solutions. Design engineers can expect to learn techniques to improve system performance, comply with energy-efficiency regulations and achieve significant overall system-level cost savings," said Andrea Mirenda, Fairchild's vice president of Marketing. "We're pleased to again offer these Power Seminars. They are part of our Global Power Resource(SM), a network of worldwide power design centers, online design tools and system design experts who partner closely with customers to optimize and innovate designs for electronic applications."
