Live Webinar in Russian Explains How to Reduce EMI and Minimize Filter Size

Reducing EMI is a key task for power system designers. With the pressure to increase density of modern electronic systems, engineers have limited PCB real estate for power supplies and EMI filters, putting pressure on engineers to achieve maximum filtering efficiency in minimal space. Lev Slutskiy, Technical Sales Engineer at Vicor, will present the second in a series of Russian-language webinars explaining how to meet the challenge of EMI on Wednesday, January 29, 2014 at 12:00 (Moscow). There is no charge to attend the webinar, but participants must register in advance. The webinar covers...

Back to Basics: How do I Ensure Correct Power Rail Sequencing in a Multi-Rail Power Architecture?

For a graphic illustration of why power sequencing is essential, consider what could happen in a large industrial system if its motors and actuators became energized before its control electronics. Clearly, the potential for such unpredictable and dangerous scenarios must be eliminated with carefully-designed power start-up sequences. And shutdown sequences are equally as important. Incorrect power sequencing can cause problems at the semiconductor as well as at the system level: these conditions could lead to unexpected reverse bias across a CMOS device. This can damage or destroy the device, or latch it into an...
