TI launches the industry’s first online classroom for analog design

Texas Instruments unveiled TI Precision Labs, the electronics industry’s first comprehensive online classroom for analog engineers. The on-demand courses pair theory and applied lab exercises to deepen the technical expertise of experienced engineers and accelerate the development of those early in their careers.

The free, modular curriculum includes more than 30 hands-on trainings and lab videos covering analog amplifier design considerations with online coursework. View TI Precision Labs – Op Amp course offerings and enroll: www.ti.com/precisionlabs-pr.

TI Precision Labs incorporates a variety of tools to bring the online training experience to life. A TI Precision Labs – Op Amp Evaluation Module (TI-PLABS-AMP-EVM), which is available for purchase for US$199, provides the opportunity for engineers to complete each demonstrated learning activity along with the trainer. The curriculum also provides access to free design tools, such as TI Designs reference designs and TI’s TINA-TI SPICE model simulator.

Engineers can evaluate circuits and small-signal AC performance created during the trainings with National Instruments’ (NI) VirtualBench all-in-one instrument and TI’s Bode Analyzer Software for VirtualBench, as well as standard engineering bench equipment.

“By combining TI Precision Labs and VirtualBench, TI and NI are providing a more immersive and accessible way to learn and apply analog concepts,” saidChad Chesney, director of data acquisition marketing at NI. “Viewing and interacting with multiple instruments in a single, intuitive user interface provides a better understanding of real-world design performance.”
