Distributors EBV Elektronik, Solid State Supplies, Rutronik, Ineltek and APC Hero are all lining up at two events covering LED & Lighting and RF and Wireless in Cambridge and Oxford next week.
The Cambridge event takes place at the Moller Centre on Tuesday March 24 and thge Oxford event will be staged at the Williams F1 Conference Centre near Oxford on Thursday March 26.

EBV Elektronik will partner Analog Devices in an interactive workshop dedicated to RF Design Tools and Support. The recent acquisition of Hittite Microwave complements ADI’s RF and signal conversion expertise with Hittite’s strength in RF, microwave and millimetre wave technology.
Analog Devices supports its broad RF-IC portfolio with a comprehensive suite of design tools, reference designs and local support. Tutorials with examples will be provided on ADIsimRF and ADIsimSRD Design Studio.
The morning conference session will be opened by Simon Simmons, Field Applications Engineer at Linear Technology. He will present an overview of latest leading I/Q Mod, De-Mod, Mixer and Synthesiser products from Linear Technology.
The presentation will show examples of new market leading wireless devices from Linear Technology Corporation, including key specifications versus competition in each of the mixer/modulator and synthesiser arenas.
Using Coilcraft Design Tools to Demonstrate Effects of Inductance Value in a Buck Converter is the title of a presentation from Business Development Manager Richard Cooper.
He will discuss using Coilcraft design tools to demonstrate the feasibility of using a lower inductance solution compared to the theoretically calculated value in a buck converter design. It shall be shown that using a lower inductance value allows the buck converter to operate in higher ripple conditions with the respective losses discussed.
The aim is to find the best compromise with respect to efficiency, response time, stability and physical size using different inductor technologies. This will be demonstrated using different magnetic materials.
The effects of ambient temperature will also be presented.
Factors that determine power consumption and range in wireless communication will be addressed by Rob Graham, Field Applications Engineer at Microchip.
This presentation will highlight the factors that contribute to the power consumption in Wi-Fi & Bluetooth communication, and how using alternate modulation schemes, it is possible to achieve extreme range in a Low-Power Wide Area Network.
The one day forums are free and include lunch and coffee. Alongside the conference hall is an exhibition where demonstrations take place and further discussions can be pursued.
Companies on parade include Rutronik, Ineltek, EBV Elektronik, Solid State Supplies, APC Hero, Linear Technology, Coilcraft, Microchip, Binder, Yokogawa, Analog Devices TUV Sud and Outsource Electronics, iED, Nanotherm, WES, and Universal Science
