Professional Educational Seminars

 This introductory course covers the basics of power management technology including switch mode converters and battery chargers. The first part of the course discusses the basics of switch mode converters including inductor based converters and switched capacitor converters. This part covers: topologies, passive and active elements, drivers, controllers and supervisory units. The second part of the course examines the issue of control including both analog and digital options. The third part covers specific issues related to VLSI implementations with particular emphasis on the digital control approach, and includes examples of recent advanced power management chips

    The course is authored and will be presented by Prof. Shmuel Ben-Yaakov (SBY) who has vast experience in the analog and power electronics fields both as an educator, designer and consultant to many companies in Israel and abroad

  The presentations will be in Hebrew, the ppt slides and handout in English.
