Giveaway ends in !

Overview

Texas Instruments is giving away 10 copies of Fundamentals of Power Supply Design book. Fundamentals of Power Supply Design draws upon decades of experience from Texas Instruments’ Power-Systems experts. It is written by Bob Mammano, a pioneer in the power supply industry and recognized as “the Father” of the Pulse Width Modulation (PWM) controller. The book starts out with power supply basics such as voltage regulation and power component selection, and then addresses advanced topics such as magnetics design, minimizing EMI, and topology selection. The book is a readable resource that contains equations and theories but also chronicles the history of the power supply industry. Actual measurements are also used throughout to illustrate practical example circuits. This book will be your key reference guide whether you are a new or seasoned power engineer.

  • Jabuu 2017-08-14

    My preferred method of learning about power supply design topics would be Books as well as the Training Videos as both of them could be very hand in one way or the other. This I have come to realize that the book has its place which the other technology can not be a substitute.  This we see when the videos in this case may fail when the machine has been attacked be malware which is common these days because of Internet of things. Videos are also very important when it comes to the illustration because you get to see things in real time, which the books can not do. To both technologies are welcome.
    I would like to use the Fundamentals of Design Power Supply to learn to design power supplies of laptops as well as industrial power supplies, personal I have desire to learn but have always found it hard to get thing together . This will be an opportunity to learn all there is to get started to the point of seeing a working product, even to take it to the market
    (3) I would like to believe that i would definitely be in a position to solve a lot of online workbook problems from Fundamentals of Power Supply Design. This I believe as the writer has a lot of experience in this field of power supply design and he is wiling to share that information.

  • JoJahn 2017-08-15

    A primer with minimum components, the calculations involved with a part list, like Mouse part#‘s etc. Then getting to more complex designs , higher frequencies etc…
    Here my thoughts:
    There is a lot of schematics etc on the web. But, when it comes to the basics, it’s difficult to find a - let say - capacitor with low ESR…. what does it mean - “LOW” ?
    And, please - don’t skip any steps….. and explain each step…
    Thanks

    P.S. I build a SPS before, very simple…. I use it to drop the supply voltage low enough to run a linear regulator with a little heat sink.

  • EESCan 2017-08-16

    1) I like learning about design topics generally from books, e-books or videos online. I find it more convenient when problems or methodologies are broken down step by step in videos. However, theory is easier to communicate via a book.

    2) I will use this book as a primer on power supply design and as a future reference.

    3) An online workbook of problems would be a great supplement to materials covered in the book.

  • modelworks 2017-08-16

  • Krunal Gandhi 2017-08-16

    1. Generally I used to go with books as it provides the all required information from basic to advanced level for designing. For robust, reliable design of power supply, one need to have a basic theoretical knowledge and mathematical calculations for their power supply and this kind of information is available in specific books. Some times I use the white papers or design notes from the reputed firms whenever I have to troubleshoot any circuit and I will be very helpful to troubleshoot.
    2. Here, I would like to go with the overall power supply primer as it provides the whole information related to power supply.
    3.Yes, It help a lot to troubleshoot the problem

    Books ( A great book will last forever, as it is either passed to the next generations or kept as references )

    2. How do you plan to use Fundamentals of Power Supply Design?

    As overall power supply premier ( I always forces myself to complete reading every books I have )

    3. Would you find an online workbook of problems to solve from Fundamentals of Power Supply ?

    Nope, I would rather depend on designing my own power supplies from scratch, so that I could see the real design problems and integrate the knowledge from books and the experience from power supply products.
    However, online workbook problems are good help too. smile
