DC-DC Converter Design for Embedded Power Management System
Due to the continuous growth of the power management for highly integrated systems, the design of the DC-DC converters becomes very challenging. This short course starts with a brief overview on the fundamental of switching converter design together with the design consideration for these converters for embedded applications. A detailed explanation on the operation and design of switching converter will be presented. The practicing engineers taking this course will learn the integrated circuit designs of the power stage, gate drive circuit, and different control mechanisms with their implementations. Analog circuit techniques for on-chip current sensor, slope compensation for current-mode control DC-DC converter will be covered. Some advanced converter topologies and techniques will also be discussed.
CMOS Low Dropout Regulators
This short course starts with a brief overview on the fundamental of linear regulator and low drop-out regulator (LDO) design together with the design consideration for these regulators for embedded applications. A detailed explanation on the operation and design of LDO design will be covered. The practicing engineers taking this course will learn the stability and compensation techniques of the CMOS LDO. Some advanced fast-transient LDO topologies and techniques will also be discussed.
In this short course, bandgap reference (BGR) fundamentals and the development of CMOS BGRs will be covered. Topics include op-amp based and non-op-amp based BGRs. The practicing engineers taking this course will learn the stability issues arose from negative and positive feedback; loop frequency response and power supply rejection; and startup issues, trimming and design of resistor strings. Some special advanced low-voltage BGR topologies will also be discussed.
