Texas Instruments TPS780/781 LDOs Designed for MSP430 MCUs
Product Marketing Engineer
Pat Hunter joined Texas Instruments in 2008 as the Product Marketing Engineer - LDOs for Power Management in the Linear Power team. Pat specializes in linear and switching regulators and has a broad understanding of power management applications. He holds a Bachelor of Science degree in electrical engineering from the University of North Carolina.
The TPS780/781 families of low-dropout (LDO) regulators offer the benefits of ultra-low power, miniaturized packaging and selectable dual-level output voltage levels. These devices are designed to be compatible with TI MSP430 microcontrollers. Because these LDOs are stable with any output capacitor greater than 1.0 µF, implementations of these devices require minimal board space.
Join Pat Hunter from TI for a 7-minute Webcast discussing:
• TPS780xx/781xx LDOs
• Dynamic Voltage Scaling (DVS) with TPS780xx LDOs
• MSP430 “F Version” Active Mode Current (IAM) VCC vs. operating frequency
• Runtime calculations
• Battery-life comparison
In less than 7 minutes, developers will gain an understanding of how to shift to a lower voltage level in a battery-powered design when the microprocessor is in sleep mode, which can reduce overall system power consumption.
Together with Avnet, TI is giving away TPS780xx evaluation modules to the first 25 qualified attendees of this Webcast.
