Low EMI and Noise performance with DC/DC switching regulators

Concepts of Switching Regulator EMI and Noise Mitigation

Before we dive into specific application-based examples of noise and EMI mitigation, let's start with the basics. What is noise? What is EMI? What is ripple? How are they measured? What are some common approaches to limiting their effects? This section discusses these topics with a more conceptual approach to serve as a primer for the rest of the series.

EMI and Noise Mitigation Techniques in Practice

Now that we understand the sources of EMI and noise in switching regulators, and some of the common approaches to mitigating each, let's take a closer look at real-world examples of reducing their effects. In this section we will examine the impacts of various mitigation techniques to help you decide which approach makes the most sense in your design. Techniques covered in this discussion include external component placement, filter options and design, frequency manipulation via spread spectrum or dithering, snubbers, boot resistors, and more.

Achieving low noise and high efficiency for noise-sensitive analog loads

Noise and EMI can be detrimental to sensitive analog signal chain circuitry. For this reason, many engineers automatically default to linear regulators. But, in doing so, they are essentially trading one problem (noise) for another (heat dissipation). In this section we will discuss what types of signal chain loads can be driven directly by a switching regulator to get low noise and EMI without sacrificing efficiency. We will also discuss when a linear regulator is absolutely needed to reach levels of noise not possible with a switcher.

Low EMI and low noise DC/DC conversion in Automotive applications

Because of the potential havoc that interference can wreak in radio and safety critical systems, automotive electronics are subject to the most stringent EMI standards- the most common being CISPR25 Class-5. The materials below provide a discussion around the sources of EMI in an automotive environment and a comprehensive blueprint to understanding how to minimize it's effects.

Introduce high power DC/DC conversion design: comparison of PSFB and FB-LLC

The “conventional wisdom” is that the Phase Shifted Full Bridge (PSFB) topology is the best choice for high power DC/DC converter applications. However, the “conventional wisdom” has been challenged by the users who are choosing the Full Bridge LLC (FB-LLC) topology for applications where we would normally suggest the PSFB topology. The speaker provides a clear comparison between the two typologies and tries to indicate which is best in a given application.
