Analog eLab Videocasts

Avnet Electronics Marketing, Texas Instruments (TI), and Xilinx have teamed together for a new eight-part, weekly video series emphasizing power supply design techniques for field-programmable gate arrays (FPGAs). The new Analog eLab video series features engineering subject matter experts from Avnet, TI and Xilinx, discussing and demonstrating innovative solutions and best practices for typical design considerations. Each video is approximately 5-15 minutes long, and helps solve challenges in various stages of power supply design, such as analyzing system requirements, researching compatible devices, circuit design and verifying completed hardware. New eLab videos will be launched weekly through January 28, 2009.
