Fairchild Semiconductor Hosts Power Seminars in China

Fairchild Semiconductor (NYSE: FCS) will highlight solutions to drive energy-efficiency at its popular power seminars, which will be hosted in four cities across Greater China in November 2007 (Taipei, Beijing, Shanghai and Shenzhen). These seminars will provide design engineers with techniques to improve system performance, comply with energy efficiency regulations and achieve significant system-level cost savings by focusing on how to optimize system power with specific analog, discrete and optoelectronic solutions.

The 2007 Power Seminar technical sessions include:

  • Design Considerations of LLC Resonant Converter.
  • Design Review: Power Stage Design for a 200W Off-Line Power Supply.
  • Application Review and Comparative Evaluation of Low-Side MOSFET Drivers.
  • Low Cost, Isolated Current Source for LED Strings.
  • Understanding Diode Reverse Recovery and its Effect on Switching Losses.

The Greater China Power Seminars will begin on November 2 and run until November 7. A list of locations, full schedule and description of each technical session, as well as registration information, is available online.

“Fairchild’s power seminars are part of the company’s Global Power Resource(SM), providing a network of worldwide power design centers with a suite of online tools and system design experts who partner closely with customers to optimize and innovate designs,” said Rexin Wang, Fairchild’s vice president of the Technical & Applications Support Centre, Asia Pacific. “We’re pleased to be able to offer these very popular technical power seminars in Greater China, marking our fifth consecutive year.”
