Mouser Electronics, Inc. is announcing an exciting and informative Exhibitor Seminar Session with Texas Instruments (TI) on Tuesday, March 22, at this year’s Applied Power Electronics Conference and Exposition 2016 (APEC 2016) at the Long Beach (California) Convention and Entertainment Center.
Mouser welcomes Allen Y. Chen, Product Marketing and Applications Manager, from TI’s Battery Management Solutions – Monitoring and Protection, on Tuesday, March 22, from 1:30 p.m. to 2:00 p.m. in room 203AB for Big Batteries: Take a Walk on the High Side with TI’s 100-V FET Driver, an in-depth look at consumers’ increasing desire for advanced high-voltage power protection and control.
Drones, cordless robotics, energy storage systems, and light electric vehicles all share one key thing in common: They rely on big batteries, and consumers expect a premium product to match the premium price tag. TI’s new bq76200 is the first high-side battery FET driver for such high-voltage battery applications, offering flexibility to battery pack designers looking for robust, low-power protection FET control. The bq76200 eliminates the struggles associated with building complicated, reliability-constrained discrete charge-pump circuits to achieve a high-side FET drive, and is a useful complement to many of TI’s existing battery monitors and companion fuel gauges. It gives designers the best of all worlds: an intelligent battery, capable of collaborating with a system 24/7 while maintaining protection and ensuring longevity.
APEC is an annual technology event that focuses on the practical and applied aspects of the power electronics industry, as well as new power electronics components. The conference features electronic exhibits, expert-led courses, special presentations, and the opportunity to network with other engineering professionals. Follow in-depth discussions that combine practical application with theory, focusing on important power electronics topics like the future of semiconductor technology development, power electronics for the Internet of Things (IoT), and advanced refuelling technologies for electric vehicles (EVs). APEC 2016 registration is available at multiple rates, but there is no cost to view exhibits, attend exhibitor seminars and lecture sessions, and compete in the annual Micromouse contest.
