In today’s fast-paced, get it done yesterday world, where the line between work time and personal time seems to have disappeared, staying updated on the latest technology is just one of the many challenges engineers face. And, the last thing you can afford to do is waste what little time you do have on some seminar that doesn’t give you what you need.

That’s why Fairchild developed the Power Seminar Series in the first place. To provide engineers the latest in power supply designs without the sales pitch. Whether you’re looking for the latest advancements in power supply design, or just looking for a refresher, the Power Seminar Series features topics that help our customer’s power amazing electronic products.

In this year’s Power Seminar Series, we’ll cover topics that you can put to use right away. Like: Driving HB-LEDs in High-Power Industrial Lighting Fixtures.

High-power, industrial Light Emitting Diode (LED) fixtures use series-parallel strings of High Brightness (HB) LEDs to produce superior lighting fixtures compared to traditional, “ballast-based” systems. HB-LEDs are configured in series or series-parallel strings and require Constant-Current, Constant-Voltage (CC-CV) power supplies typically operating within the range of 50W-200W. Voluntary and mandated industry requirements such as the need for Power Factor Correction (PFC), extended universal input voltage range, high efficiency, current accuracy, load control and dimming are all met with the usual challenges of reducing cost, size and design complexity. This seminar will address some of the specific challenges designers face when considering power supply design solutions for these unique types of LED lighting applications.

If you’re looking for the latest in power supply designs, or just a refresher, Fairchild’s Power Seminars is a MUST attend seminar! Register to attend a session near in North America and Asia this May and June. (For dates and locations near you, click here.)

Space is limited at each session, so don’t wait, sign up now for this free, one-day seminar which includes a tutorial review of basic design principles and “hands-on,” real-world application examples.
