Webinar Overview

As higher efficiency topology drives both system efficiency and new design challenges, switch mode power supplies are a leading component. When measuring magnetic devices, many engineers face such challenges as proper inductor and transformers selection, and reliable in-circuit magnetic power measurements to optimize a design.

The Tektronix 5 Series Oscilloscope and its new magnetics measurement capabilities allows designers to precisely and reliably measure voltage, magnetized current, and magnetic power loss.

In this webinar, you will learn to:

Identify and overcome measurement challenges on selecting and qualifying the right magnetic components (inductors/transformers)
Reliably measure magnetized current and magnetic power loss with B-H curve, inductance plots.
Determine overall system impact and considerations
Who should attend:

Analog design circuit engineers, test engineers, system integrators.

Attendees will come away with better understanding of how to properly select and qualify their magnetic components like inductors and transformers, and reliably measure their magnetic devices in their switch mode power supplies while in operation.
