This October will see Motiv8 Forums final open events for 2015. Concluding the year with 2 events dedicated to the very latest in Power / Power Management & Sensors / Sensor Technologies.

As always these events are not only FREE to attend, but over the last 6 years have proven to be essential attending for technical staff, from solving problems, finding out new technologies, to sharing best practice and networking with other technical staff from around the UK.

Following on from the attendee survey after the June events, this is was the feedback –

“Still the best events for Engineers in the UK” – “A must for all Engineers” – “The best day I have ever spent at a show” – “Inspirational” – “Todays Forum has helped me solve a problem I have been working on for months” – “Thanks for the invite, I cant believe these events are free”

In October Motiv8 Forums will be holding the following events –

October 15th – Moller Centre – CambridgeREGISTER HERE
October 20th – Williams F1 HQ – OxfordREGISTER HERE

These events will feature as normal AM technical presentations, PM technical workshops, with supporting all day technical exhibition area and networking, these days will feature workshops and presentations such as –
Using Zero Voltage Switching Techniques to maintain better step-down converter efficiency, even with high input voltage

This presentation will explore the Zero Voltage Switching (ZVS) Buck topology; explaining the purpose of the clamp switch and how ZVS uses parasitic circuit elements, that are a nuisance in traditional PWM designs, as an integral part of its operation.  A comparison between the ZVS and traditional PWM switching waveforms will be presented

The theme is to present an overview of different LED driver topologies, such as buck, boost, SEPIC, Cuk, etc., and then to share  experiences of LED driver designs that have gone wrong and how to avoid costly mistakes.
