Measuring PSRR accurately

Keywords:power-supply-rejection ratio  PSRR  power-supply  PCB  signal injectors 

In theory, measurement of the power-supply-rejection ratio (PSRR) is relatively easy. A variable-frequency signal modulates the power-supply input, and the attenuation of that signal is measured at the output. However, the measurement is highly sensitive to setup noise, including noise from the probe-loop area and the layout of the printed circuit board (PCB). This article explores commonly encountered setup issues that limit PSRR measurement and offers a method to overcome them using high-fidelity signal injectors and a highly sensitive/selective vector network analyser (VNA).
