Texas Instruments is bridging the gap between power theory and real-world applications for engineering students and industry professionals alike with the TI Power Management Lab Kit (TI-PMLK) series. All electronic systems, without exception, need a power solution. A growth in power needs means there is a surging demand for highly skilled power engineers. TI is addressing this demand with a series of lab kits that provides a hands-on power management learning experience with system-level reasoning.
The TI-PMLK is comprehensive, easy to use and versatile, facilitating a learning environment that results in students applying the practical learning achieved through the lab experience toward designing their power supply solution. Each lab kit includes an evaluation board and an experiment lab book covering key power converter topologies, theory, case studies and a set of unique experiments to jumpstart understanding of power supplies that are required for real-life applications. The TI-PMLK series includes the most common power solutions found in the industry: buck, linear regulator (LDO), boost and coming soon, buck-boost.
The series of boards and experiments can be used to reinforce foundational theories taught in a variety of electrical engineering courses, as well as to train industry professionals on how to make informed power supply decisions for their designs. The TI-PMLK can be holistically taught in modular parts to accommodate curriculum or coursework needs or to facilitate engineering training in the industry to address particular application challenges.
The TI-PMLK aims to equip all current and future engineers with the knowledge necessary to solve real-world power supply issues and to continue creating innovative solutions for our world of evolving technology.
