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.
