We'll take an in-depth look at how spread spectrum can be an effective tool to reduce EMI in a power management design. EMI expert Christian Kueck will present case studies on the effects of switching frequency and duty cycle on EMI, what spread spectrum can accomplish for optimum EMI performance, and provide insight to some commonly asked questions about spread spectrum.

In this second episode of our ongoing Automotive EMI series, we explore how PCB design can greatly impact a DC/DC power supply’s emissions performance. EMI expert Jens Hedrich reviews a PCB design in its three dimensions to explain general circuit placement, cover how parasitic board elements can be used as noise filters, and address controversial layout questions such as, “should I place copper under my inductor?”

|Webinar: Automotive AEC-Q100||
Automotive quality guru Richard Oshiro, MPS Director of QMS-Automotive and our representative on the Automotive Electronics Council (AEC), provides an overview of the reliability tests involved in AEC-Q100 automotive qualification. This quick, insightful 30-minute webinar also covers how MPS qualification and production tests go above and beyond AEC-Q100 requirements to deliver optimum reliability for today’s automotive applications.
|Webinar: Web Programmable Power Modules||
MPS web programmable DC DC power modules allow for rapid prototyping and getting products to market faster. Learn how using web based software allows quick hardware changes. Our website configuration and simulation tool allows you to easily enter your load requirements, change your output voltage, adjust your passive component parameters and instantly evaluate your design performance. Changes to design can be made immediately, eliminating time consuming system verification and board rework, dramatically reducing design time.
|Webinar: Automotive EMI Demystified||
Meeting strict automotive EMI/EMC standards can be a big headache for today’s hardware engineers working on cutting-edge infotainment, ADAS, and lighting systems. This Automotive EMI Demystified webinar tackles this hot topic, explaining just exactly what is EMI, its sources in a power supply design, and how to reduce it.
