Automotive EMC Standards and Best Practices
The EMI certification procedures and tests for the Automotive market can be complicated and difficult to understand at first glance. This video and presentation goes into the detail of the tests for the major North American and German car manufacturers, and ways to help pass each of them with high-level advice. RF emissions (Conducted and Radiated), as well as RF immunity are described, while also describing which automotive manufacturers use which test to begin evaluating the device.
At the end of the presentation, IC design and PCB design techniques are described to help with overall better device performance, but especially EMI mitigation.
Engineer It: Leverage TI’s online toolbox to tackle thermals before touching a soldering iron
For every 10 degrees in junction temperature rise, the chances of your IC failing doubles. With megatrends like increasing power levels, shrinking PCB area, and smaller and smaller package sizes, how can you protect your design against heat and ensure long-term system reliability?
In this thorough training, learn about how to optimize your DC/DC switching regulator design for thermal performance. The LM73605/6 and LM76002/3 synchronous buck converters serve as the example devices. Topics discussed in this video include:
- Packaging options and what to look for to maximize thermal performance
- Thermal resistance metrics from the datasheet and what they mean
- Calculating PCB area requirements for heat sinking
