EMI: The Fundamentals

Before we dive into specific application-based examples of noise and EMI mitigation, let's start with the basics. What is EMI? How is this different from noise? 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.

Application-Specific EMI Considerations

Some systems simply require more attention than others when it comes to EMI. In this section, we will examine some of those specific end applications and provide some helpful hints to reach EMI targets with each.

Power-Conversion Techniques for Complying with Automotive Emissions Requirements

Power Conversion Techniques for Complying with Automotive Emissions Requirements

Comité International Spécial des Perturbations Radioélectriques (CISPR) 25 is the typical starting point for evaluating conducted and radiated emissions in automotive systems. This topic addresses the unique challenges of designing power converters to pass CISPR 25 requirements, including background information on the CISPR 25 standard and test setups. We explain common noise sources in power converters and various techniques to reduce conducted and radiated emissions, including input filter design, frequency selection, mode selection, snubber design, shielding and layout.

Optimizing DC/DC Converters for EMI in Automotive systems

Optimizing DC/DC Converters for EMI in Automotive Systems

EMI (electromagnetic interference) mitigation is a critical step in the design process in most electronic systems, and especially so in the automotive world. In many cases, automotive OEM emissions requirements are even more stringent than both national and international standards bodies like the FCC. Unfortunately, by their nature, switching regulators are sources of EMI; but, in order to keep power supply designs small and efficient, switchers are a critical component. So how can you reap the benefits of a switching regulator while still meeting challenging EMI requirements?

Multiphase 101

In today’s computing environment, CPUs, FPGAs, ASICs and even peripherals are growing increasingly complex and, consequently, so do their power delivery requirements. To handle the higher demands, multiphase regulators are becoming increasingly common on motherboards in many areas of computing--from laptops and tablets to servers and Ethernet switches. Designing with these regulators is more challenging than using conventional switchers and linear regulators, but the benefits of multiphase outweigh the complexity for high-performance power applications.

Low EMI and Noise performance with DC/DC switching regulators

Achieving low noise and low EMI performance with DC/DC switching regulators

Mitigating switching regulator EMI and noise is seen by engineers as a black art. Mess with the feng shui of the PCB layout too much, and the system may not pass CISPR standards. Because of this, many power designers simply turn to linear regulators as a guaranteed way to avoid the headache of reducing emissions.

Managing heat dissipation with DC/DC switching regulators

Managing heat dissipation has always been a critical concern for any power supply designer, and this concern has only grown in importance as output current levels have increased while IC package sizes have gotten smaller. This page serves as your ultimate resource for all training materials and technical documentation related to keeping your switching regulator running cool.  

There are numerous ways to address thermals. This library of training content is broken out by some of these key approaches to improving the thermal performance of your switching regulator.

DC/DC Buck Converters: What do all of these features mean?

As switching converters have evolved, they have taken on a host of new features to operate more efficiently and quietly. To some, however, all these new features listed on the front page of the datasheet may seem foreign. This training series dives into those features to explain the true benefits of each and help you decide which are necessary for your power supply design. Specifically covered in this series are the buck converter topics of:
