TI empowers design engineers at APEC 2017

Texas Instruments gives design engineers the “Power to Do Anything” through a series of demonstrations and presentations at the Applied Power Electronics Conference (APEC), March 26-30, in Tampa, Florida. TI will reveal new products and unveil end-to-end power-management system solutions including hardware, software and reference designs that give designers the power to:

  • Innovate:
    • See how the industry’s first end-to-end gallium nitride (GaN) solution revolutionizes data center AC-to-processor power density by over 3x, with TI’s GaN technology clocking in at over 7 million device reliability hours.
    • Experience the design simplicity that power modules provide as TI takes the wraps off its new high-current PMBus™ module with telemetry for communications applications.
    • Watch two new low quiescent current (IQ) step-down DC/DC converters power the next evolution of automotive USB Type-C™ and industrial heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) applications.
    • View the industry’s first multiphase bidirectional current controller efficiently transfer power between 48-V and 12-V automotive dual-battery systems.
  • Design:
    • Analyze and interpret designs with new WEBENCH® Power Design tools. Go beyond the traditional concerns of performance, footprint and cost with tools that mitigate electromagnetic interference (EMI) noise and handle noise-sensitive loads.
    • Check out the new TI Power Management Lab Kit (TI-PMLK) buck-boost board and experiment book to better understand the trade-offs related to common power-supply parameters such as power losses, converter efficiency, stability, load and line regulation, and more.
  • Learn:
    • Attend the APEC plenary “Power Semiconductor Technology – Flexibility for Tomorrow’s Solutions” by Ahmad Bahai, Texas Instruments’ chief technologist and senior vice president. From 1:30 to 2 p.m. on Monday, March 27. Bahai will show how the demand for smart, high-efficiency power management is outpacing the average growth rate of the semiconductor industry.
    • Join TI power experts at more than 30 technical sessions covering topics such as renewable energy systems, wireless technology and GaN device reliability validation.
    • Meet Bob Mammano, author of “Fundamentals of Power Supply Design”, your new indispensable reference book for all things power, daily in the TI booth. Enter for a chance to win an exclusive autographed pre-release copy.
    • Grab TI’s new month-to-month power-topology guide in the TI booth while they last.

    Meet Dr. Ahmad Bahai

    Dr. Ahmad Bahai, TI Chief Technologist and Senior Vice President

    Dr.Ahmad Bahai will be kicking off the APEC plenary sessions with his presentation “Power semiconductor technology – flexibility for tomorrow’s solutions” where he will be discussing how today’s systems and future systems are adopting USB Power Delivery.

    Dr. Ahmad Bahai is chief technologist of TI and director of Kilby Labs and corporate research. Ahmad is a thought leader in the technology industry, having co-invented the multi-carrier spread spectrum, which is being used in many modern communication systems, such as 4G and power line communications. He also authored the first textbook on orthogonal frequency-division multiplexing (OFDM) in 1999 and served as the associate editor of IEEE journals for five years.

    Ahmad has been published in more than 80 IEEE/IEE publications and has 33 patents and five pending on systems and circuits. He received his master of science degree from Imperial College, the University of London, and his doctorate from the University of California at Berkeley, all in electrical engineering.

    Attend the session:
