WEBENCHÂ® Visualizer is a powerful comparison and selection
tool that enables engineers to rapidly select an optimal power system design
from a large array of possibilities. It creates a graphical snapshot of options
across multiple criteria, such as efficiency, footprint and system bill of materials (BOM) cost. Drawing from 25
different switching power supply architectures and 21,000 components, engineers
can navigate through billions of power supply design alternatives in seconds.
Design criteria can be modified and the real-time effects observed, allowing
engineers to select the best DC-DC power supply based on their unique needs. The tool supports a variety of power supply topologies such
as buck, boost, buck-boost, SEPIC and flyback. WEBENCH Visualizer gives design
engineers all of the tools to produce the best possible design in the shortest
time. Instead of a hard coded parametric
table, this tool dynamically calculates key power supply parameters for 70 or
more designs scenarios based on the user's inputs. The results are presented in a
three-dimensional graph which makes it easy for the designer to drive to the
desired solution, shaving days off of the power supply design time compared to
doing calculations for designs one at a time.
At this year's MD&M West show, lots of material suppliers are talking about new formulations for wearables and things that stick to the skin, whether it's adhesives, wound dressings, skin patches and other drug delivery devices, or medical electronics.
The US Congress has extended an important tax credit for solar energy, a move that’s good news for future investments in this type of alternative energy and for many stakeholders in the solar industry.
Focus on Fundamentals consists of 45-minute on-line classes that cover a host of technologies. You learn without leaving the comfort of your desk. All classes are taught by subject-matter experts and all are archived. So if you can't attend live, attend at your convenience.
