Applications and Marketing with both Agilent Technologies and Hewlett-Packard in Colorado. He holds a BSEE from Iowa State University and an MSEE from the University of Arizona. Hertz is an Eta Kappa Nu electrical engineering honorary recipient, has published over 50 articles in the field of test and measurement, and has been awarded 6 U.S. patents in oscilloscope measurement design.


Address:Michigan, United States


This seminar covers the measurements of interest for designers of switched-mode power conversion circuits and devices. With the goal of high efficient and reliable designs, we review the acquisition of voltage and current, their relationship in switched-mode power conversion circuits.  We review specific power circuit performance areas including the analysis of power device switching losses, conduction losses, dynamic on-resistance, control loop response, power quality, conducted emissions, best practices for probing power circuits, and power rail integrity measurements. This presentation is especially targeted toward design and test engineers involved in switched-mode power circuit design, design verification and power device characterization, AC/DC, DC-DC, DC-AC, single and three-phase power circuits, power distribution, motor drives and power rail integrity measurements.
