Automotive Designs Demand Low EMI Synchronous Buck Converters

April 30, 2015 // By Jeff Gruetter, Linear Technology Corp
As automobiles continue to add an ever increasing number of electronic systems to enhance safety, comfort, efficiency and performance while minimizing harmful exhaust emissions, it comes as no surprise that they require physically smaller power solutions with dramatically higher power levels. Additionally, with the proliferation of more EMI- sensitive systems within the vehicle, reducing EMI emissions from switching power supplies is of paramount importance, thereby creating more challenges for switching regulator IC design.
