The TI-PMLK is the first collection of power management curriculum, coursework and labs for education. It is intended to educate students on electronic theory and TI power supply design. Students will learn the theory behind switching power supplies and linear regulators and, through hands-on experiments using different boards, go deeper into power issues such as modes of operation; efficiency; accuracy; power magnetics; control; and transient response.

The series was developed in partnership with Dr. Nicola Femia, a respected power expert and faculty member at the University of Salerno in Italy. Together with Dr. Femia, we are committed to providing educators with a hands-on learning platform to teach students power supply for real world applications.

What's covered?

The Power Management Lab Kit series is comprised of five boards, each offering unique experiments and accompanied by an experiment lab book covering four key power topologies and case studies demonstrating different aspects of power supply design tradeoffs.

The boards cover a variety of possible tests and measurements which can be performed in teaching labs. The boards are designed to investigate the influence of physical parameters and operation conditions of a power supply on its own performance.
