ON SEMICONDUCTOR SHARES DESIGN EXPERTISE WITH EUROPEAN POWER MANAGEMENT DESIGN ENGINEERS DURING TWO-DAY POWER SUPPLY SEMINARS Friday 6 April 2001 PDF Print Collaboration with world-recognised instructor and power design expert Dr. Ray Ridley enables faster and more sophisticated power supply designs ON Semiconductor today launched a series of European power supply seminars, building on the success of the seminars held in the United States during the last four months. Partnering with Dr. Ray Ridley of Ridley Engineering, ON Semiconductor is offering two days of application specific training to engineers designing power supplies and power management systems. ON Semiconductor selected Dr. Ridley, one of the top consultants in the power electronics industry, to collaborate with the company's in-house technical expertise to support power supply engineers by using his proven design expertise, software tools, and tool development efforts. Dr. Ridley's services will be available to ON Semiconductor for a two-year period and include lectures with ON Semiconductor's applications engineers on power management topics, as well as power conversion EDA software enhancements to Ridley Engineering's successful Power 4-5-6 EDA software. "With the limited availability of analogue designers with extensive experience in this area, learning the tricks of the trade from an expert, such as Dr. Ray Ridley will prove to be valuable to both designers and their companies.", said Dominique Dumortier, Director of ON Semiconductor's Analog Division in Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA). "Through our European design centres located in Toulouse and Grenoble, France and Roznov pod Radhostem, Czech Republic, we offer our customers system knowledge and product design expertise focussed at developing intelligent power management systems for portable and wireless applications as well as computers and any appliance used to access the Internet." The European switching power supply design seminars continue the series of seminars started in San Jose in December last year and will be held in London, England and Munich, Germany: - June 25-26, 2001 - The New Connaught Rooms - London, England; - July 4-5, 2001 - Hilton Munich Park - Munich, Germany. "Leading products like our new NCP1200 PWM Current-Mode Controller, developed in our European design centres, demonstrate our company's continuing strategy to lead the power management market," said Alistair Banham, President and General Manager of the Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA) region at ON Semiconductor. "The initiative underlines our position as second largest supplier for power supply and power management integrated circuits in 2000 in Europe (*)". The topics presented on the first day of the seminar include modelling, magnetics, power stage characteristics and voltage/current-mode feedback loop design. The topics addressed on the second day will be flyback topology, multiphase buck converters and power factor correction pre-converters. The seminar cost is EURO 105 excluding VAT, with pricing varying by country. Included in the fee, attendees of the seminar will receive production copies of Dr. Ridley's Power 4-5-6 software, the only power supply design software on the market today that offers components design, large-signal simulation feedback control design and small-signal analysis in one package.
