PI Online Learning Centre Has Instructional Videos

Power Integrations has launched PI University, an online technical learning centre featuring practical instructional videos on power-supply circuit design. The PI University courses offered each week will demonstrate new approaches to designing, specifying and testing efficient power supplies.

PI University Season One covers a range of power-supply design topics, including bringing up a power supply for the first time; identifying and troubleshooting problems; complying with energy-efficiency standards; and measurement and testing techniques. A video will be released each week throughout January 2010.

Courses currently available include: Testing Compliance to Energy-Efficiency Standards; Fixing a Flyback Supply with No Output Voltage; and Techniques for Measuring Efficiency Power Integrations. Each IC includes a 700V power Mosfet combined with control and protection circuitry on a single chip.

Features include current limiting and thermal shutdown with automatic fault recovery capability to improve reliability, frequency jittering to reduce EMI and EcoSmart technology to reduce standby energy waste.
