Benefits and challenges of high-frequency regulators

Posted: 23 Feb 2010     Print Version  Bookmark and Share

Keywords:high frequency regulator  layout considerations  reducing EMI 

Space constraints exist in many electronic designs. Beyond portable handsets, applications such as industrial instrumentation, point-of-sale terminals and portable medical devices also have board space and height restrictions. Switching regulators with high switching frequency present an engineer working on a space-constrained design with an effective means to minimize solution size.

There are a few considerations to keep in mind when using a high switching frequency regulator in a design. Careful layout must be considered to reduce EMI and improve the performance of the device. Also, the IC packaging selection and PCB layout must be considered for dissipating heat in smaller spaces.
