“I really enjoyed the workshop as it provides me hands on training with combination of some practical theories, instead of complicated equations and rules, which is very hard for me to remember and apply in the real world.”
“I've designed switching converters for many years, and those designs were successful, but I can only imagine how much easier my life would have been if I had taken this class 20 years ago.” 
"This course holds great value. RidleyWorks is a powerful design tool. RidleyBox simplifies test equipment and is offered at a reasonable price. Dr. Ridley is a good professor, both theoretical and practical knowledge is off the charts.” 

SwitchBitCropRidley Engineering has led post-university practical education in power electronics design since 1991. In 1999, we developed a hands-on, very personal approach to education. In our 5-day workshops, we teach engineers how to design, build, test, debug and solve problems in our teaching lab. Our methodology is captured in our software, which is provided for each engineer as part of the educational package. As the industry evolves, we help engineers gain a more powerful knowledge base in all aspects of design. Adding to this signature experience, we developed the hardware and software used in the lab with training in mind.

Our training lab benches include the latest technology in the industry:

  • RidleyBox® - including RidleyWorks® software, 4-channel frequency response analyzer, 4-channel 200 MHz oscilloscope, universal injector and onboard computer
  • Ridley SwitchBit® Development Boards
  • Ridley Magnetics Building Kit
  • Tools, Parts and Accessories
  • Lecture Manual and Lab Manual

This is an industry-centric workshop guaranteed to provide skills that will boost productivity. See immediate results in the following areas:

  • New hire engineers will move rapidly from inexperienced to highly productive with a structured design approach.
  • Experienced engineers will refine their skills and accelerate their design with our unique tools and common-sense training.
  • Design, build, test and debug a flyback power supply for multiple outputs using any controller—suitable for bias supplies up to 50 W, motor drive gate drives, consumer and industrial electronics.
  • Design, build, test and debug a forward power supply using any controller—suitable for power levels to 200 W.
  • Understand how to design, specify and qualify transformers and inductors from vendors or for custom production—with power levels to 10 kW.
  • Learn how to measure control transfer functions and optimize loops for single and multi-loop converters at power levels to 10 kW.
  • Reduce days of trial-and-error feedback design to just a few hours with our structured approach. Learn more about GaN.

Each engineer receives the following:

  • Five days intensive training guaranteed to improve design skills and reduce design cycle time
  • RidleyWorks® Control and Magnetics Design Software, by Dr. Ray Ridley - the industry’s leading software for comprehensive power supply design
  • Lecture Manual, Lab Manual and Certificate

Learn first-hand from Dr. Ray Ridley, one of the top power electronics industry consultants and inventor of the most accurate model available for current-mode control. Dr. Ridley combines the teaching of theoretical and practical concepts, and hands-on experience with the latest high-tech design software and laboratory instruments. It's an educational opportunity you can't afford to miss.
