Abstract
DC-DC buck converter topology is widely used in computers and telecom applications because of its high power efficiency and multiple DC levels. However, EMI can be an issue because of its fast switching characteristics and large currents. This paper addresses the analysis of radiated EMI problems associated with DC-DC buck converters and evaluates the effectiveness of solutions that minimize the reverse recovery of the drain-bulk diode of the synchronous switching MOSFET.
