New Techniques for Testing Modern Power Supply Designs
and Solving EMI Challenges

Learn from the Tektronix experts, receive a complimentary lunch, and have a chance to Test Drive the newest products on the market!

IoT and low power devices are expected to exceed 20 billion units by 2020. Many of these devices will be wearables, portable medical devices, and battery-operated sensor/transmitters requiring long battery life. Designers need to be able to determine the total power that the end device will consume and how the device can be efficiently powered.

Wide Bandgap designs such as SiC and GaN are now being used in demanding applications such as automotive and RF communications because they can operate at higher frequencies, voltage and temperatures with lower power loss making these devices preferred in power converters over traditional Silicon however this comes with several important considerations. Benefits of the half bridge technology can only be realized when all stages of the circuit are properly designed and optimized to ensure measured results agree with expected results.

Did you know that 50% of projects fail EMI/EMC testing the first time? This can be due to a failure in applying EMC principles, lack of knowledge, unpredicted interactions among circuit elements, or using non-compliant modules into the final product.

What will you learn?
• New methods on how to characterize storage systems
• How to precisely measure the power and load profiles
• New tools for defining the characteristics of the Wide Bandgap device
• Take the mysteries out of EMI/EMC test setup
• Test to US, EU and worldwide EMI standards
• Debug EMI problems by localizing the source of emissions
Compile a complete pre-compliance test solution for conducted and radiated emissions
